Sampled at the Freetail-Real Ale barrel-aged festival in San Antonio.

The beer pours a gold color with a white head. The aroma is orange and other citrus fruit with some oak mixed in. The flavor is more the same. It tastes like heavily oaked oranges and grapefruits with a nice, bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. (338 characters)

On tap at Blac Sheep. Pours up a hazy burnt orange. Quickly fading whitehead. Nose of apricot, oak, citrus. Taste same as the nose. Subtle but tasty hops. Pretty damn sweet. Nice lil oaky flavor. I dig it. Very smoothe, very muddled carbo. Medium bodied. I could totally drink this how all day, gangsta pork chops!!! (316 characters)

On tap at Rudyard's.

A: Pours a semi hazy golden/orange color. A two finger white head forms that sticks around for a while. Light lace is left behind.
S: Very vinous and almost tart fruits up front. Musky grapes with a lingering hop bite. Floral, citrus, and grassy aromas all work really well with the wine barrels and fruits. I love the aroma.
T: To bad non of the aroma carried over. Up front is a very light vinous/grape character. Citrus, grass, light bitterness. Sweetness lingers, and pretty much dominates after a while.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Though a bit on the watery side. Easy enough to drink. I had no problems finishing.

I was looking forward to this. The nose is really amazing, but not much else stands out. This is worth a try, and I did enjoy it. Though there are better barrel aged beers by Real Ale and other breweries available. (866 characters)
