Bottle into Tired Hands Teku. Batch 4.

Pours out with a clear filtered appearance and bright light yellow color. Little to non-existent head. Apple juice concentrate appearance .

The nose is very pleasant with oak, white wine, a faint whiff of musky sock, golden delicious apple, pear cider, and a yogurt lactic presence. Reminds me of the CD6 I had earlier with lots of wine and cider characteristics.

The palate is delicate and sports a nice bright fruitiness much in American Wild style category. Plenty of oak and vanilla from the barrels add a counter touch to the white wine notes. The fruits are along the line of apple, pear, lime zest, and white nectarine. So balanced and approachable. Vinous and tannic. A touch of cereal just to add to the complexity.

Mouthfeel is light with low carbonation again very similar to CD6. It's dry, tannic, and sports a nice lactic pucker that is not aggressive in any way. Missing some carbonation but it's not a terrible blow.

Overall a very tasty beer with big barrel presence, lovely balance, and high drinkability. Like a few other saisons that have seen barrel aging, this has morphed into a wild ale/saison hybrid. Not the best saison (or wild ale for that matter) that I've had but certainly among the better ones. Seek this out.
