4.8/5 rDev +25%
Cellared for one year. Opened on 18 October 2013. Life officially changed.
Why are the limited-release brews the best ones?
The wood-aging on oak and maple makes for an incredibly subtle but complex layer of nuanced flavour. This would be a clear winner with seasonal autumn food -- pumpkin soup, pumpkin risotto, venison stew, Thanksgiving dinner. I can only hope that I can still go out and find some bottles of this in 2013.

Pours a beautiful, creamy, off-white head. Yeasty, but delicious, nose. Significant carbonation. Tiny bubbles. Restrained, but floral hops in the nose. Slight haze. Medium-tan color. Suggestions of amber. Medium body. Well-balanced palate. Nice malt and certainly moreish. Sweet and tart in restraints. Some Belgian lace. The ABV is not noticeable on the palate. Fresh, enticing, delicious. Will definitely try again. Would be fun to lay some down and see how they age.

Pours dark amber with white foam. Hazy look to it. Sunny citrussy smell. Light fruit otherwise malty. Smooth and subtle malt taste. Background yeast and light sugar taste. Cherries. Toffee. Hugely flavorful with a perfect carbonation that blends in. Subtle booziness.There is an oakiness in the background. This is a fantastic beer.
