Thanks to Skuter for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, grain, fruit, and wine aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, fruit, and wine flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice wine barrel aged presence all around.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy milky yellow. Nice white head with good retention.

Smell - Quite lactic acidity. Grainy malt. A little sweet. A little bit of that wine barrel, but not super strong. Oak, though.

Taste - Less tart than the nose implied. Hefty pale malt. Grainy behind the sweetness. Wine barrel blends in more than it's at the forefront.

Mouthfeel - A touch heavy. Very malty and medium carbonation.

Overall - Had this after Civil Disobedience #5, which put HandFarm on the back foot immediately. This is still very good.

Edit: Drank another batch 1 bottle in March 2014 and I don't know why I was complaining about heaviness. This is crisp and pleasantly tart. I don't get as much pale malt either. Grainy with a nice wine barrel character. Excellent. I have not changed my numbers to reflect this, though.

500ml bottle into a matching Tired Hands oversized wine glass. The brew appears a clear golden straw yellow color with a frothy white finger. The cap fades leaving a curtain of spotty lace sticking to the glass. A swirl revives a half finger back to the surface.

The aroma is lemony and lightly fruity with a very soft vinous touch that is almost tart feeling across the nose. Other notes of sulfur, cheese and mild footy funk are also noted. While not the most bold set of aromatics, it is a nice upgrade from the base.

The flavor is faintly lemony and fruity with a vinous edge. At times this has a feel of funk and cheese with sulfur and a solid backing of grainy quality. Wheat and bready character is there but without having any residual sweetness. Pretty nice.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is very easily approachable and effortlessly drinkable. This is a very nice upgrade from the base but not something I would have stood in line for 3 hours for and felt good about. It's best atribute is how clean, snappy and easy drinking it is. Big thanks to my boy Ed for hooking me up with this. I am very appreciative of the chance to try it.
