Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

Corked and caged in a 750 mL heavy bottle. $14.99 The bottle is printed with a bunch of scribbles suggesting someone with really bad handwriting artfully blended this. The cork pops easily and loudly.

A: Pours with excessive foaming. Four fingers of khaki head form and swell up over the lip of the goblet before I can get a decent amount of beer out of the bottle. The head persists, with a fine layer of thick film atop layers of rocky, irregular bubbles. The beer is crystal-clear amber. After topping up, the color is cloudy apricot.

S: The Brett leads the lacto, with spicy phenols up front, and tangy vinegar behind. A slight citrus touches off a leathery, dry, oak-infused malt. A faint grassy, earthy hop lingers behind the stronger spices.

T: Whoa. It's hot and alcoholic, like you'd expect from a beer in the 'above 10% ABV' category. It's hoppy, but it's really hot and fusel-flavored. It's boozy and tangy and hard to drink.

M: Hot. It's very astringent and prickly on the front-top of the tongue and sticky in the back and beside the tongue. Mouth-wateringly vinegary.

D: Low.

Overall, not really a favorite oaked beer. It's going to be hard to finish this. May update later.
