Notes/Commercial Description:
Unblended will be the label for single barrel releases of barrels that are just too nice to blend with anything else.

Barrel #40 was a 100% spontaneously fermented blonde ale that saw time in our coolship. This barrel was beautiful after 13 months of aging and I decided to bottle it as is. Our first coolship beer to be released.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy yellow. Not much of a head, just a few bubbles when I pour it. Settles to nothing.

Smell - Lots of stone fruits. Lightly acidic. Woody and white winey.

Taste - Very woody. Much more lemony. Not as much of the stone fruit flavor. Kinda grassy. Finishes with a yogurty tartness.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Pleasantly sour.

Overall - It's good, but I was hoping for a little more complexity.
