Pours an amber orange color. Cloudy opaque. Voluminous 6orange-tinged white head. Lots of lacing, very good retention. The aroma has a nice oaky vinous character with a light citrus note. Mild funk. Some pale grain sweetness. Taste is light to medium tart with a lot of pleasant stuff going on. Tropical fruit, medium tannic oak, wine, citrus, subtle peppery spice. The barrel character is probably the strongest element, but it all blends together very well. Very pleasant and refreshing flavor. Mouthfeel is light, relatively gentle carbonation. Very tasty beer. (564 characters)

Cloudy amber body topped with a very good head.
Funky and fruity aroma featuring orange.
Funky and fruity taste with, as expected, too much funk for my taste. (158 characters)

A: Glowey straw gold beer. Giant cream colored head. Sticks to the glaass like cream cheese cake frosting. Big clumpy goodness.

S: Aroma reminds me of a more tart orval. Sweet dandelions, warm summer farmy smells, soft orangy citrus, wild stinky yeast, very floral.

T: Very dry, floral, puckering lemon rind tart, sweet crackery breadiness. Moderately acidic. Nicely done. (374 characters)
