Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mcallister on 08-04-2010

A Golden Ale created by blending the final recipe with its own barrel aged pilot beers fermented with wild yeasts. Each individual barrel contributes a unique flavor from the wood chosen and the cultures resident to achieve subtle complexities that develop(ed) over time. A beer which starts sweet, filling the mouth with fruit-like esters and a mild spiciness, changing to a tart and lingering flavor reminiscent of grapefruit living amidst an earthy, citrusy hop aroma. Define flavor for yourself in this constantly evolving liquid expression.

Pour is dark hazed amber with a tight off white head. The nose is a balance of wood, Brett, and fruit. Wood is most forthcoming with apple skin, light mushroom and tannin. Taste is much less balanced, stronger malt undertones, brighter apple skin notes, musky mushroomy brett, fairly powerful tannic flavor. Very strong carbonation, light body, semi dry finish with a tinge of booze but not too much for the alcohol content.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter.

Appeared a golden/orange color with a ridiculous full-hand off-white head that stuck around for quite some time.

Smell was all over the place. Definitely could detect the alcohol in the nose. Also some fruity/wheat scents. Did have a slight white-wine scent probably from the barrel and the lacto.

Taste was all over the place as well. Very potent tasting. Strong hop flavors which I wasn't expecting, followed by some fruity tang. Alcohol was very strong and a bit offensive.

Mouth feel was OK. I enjoyed the high level of carbonation as it gave some reprieve from the alcohol heat.

Overall, not impressed but happy to try. Splitting the 750 with only one other person was a chore to get through.
