Cask at the brewery.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a short-lived bubbly head that left no lacing.

There's a pine hop kick up front from the dry hopping which gave way pretty quickly to the big sweet Belgian yeast and fruits underneath. There are hints of some wine-like fruity tartness, but it's very faint.

The taste has the same hop kick up front with the fruity sweetness dominating afterward. The tart berries some through a little more than the aroma and leave a wine-like dryness in the finish.

The mouthfeel is very smooth with an initial hop prickliness with minimal carbonation.

This is a pretty good beer that I think would gain some added complexity with more time in the barrel with the berries. Still, it was the best of the four casks on offer at the brewery.

EDIT: I think this is the same beer they called the "Grapes of Cask" at the Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting, but I'm not positive.
