The color of jack o'lantern guts. Massive rocky froth the color of 2 day old snow thick enough to ski. The same as with any great wood aged wild ale the aroma presents as a still-life: Slices of pumpkin, green apple, cacao, nutmeg, whipped egg whites on a pickle barrel. Strange that I get aroma of eggwhites, but hey, anything can come out of a barrel. In the retronasal I get a small piece of scallion. Caveat: I don't know much about the sensory perception of cacao. Here I presume it adds to the mouthfeel, and maybe to the aroma by way of the "eggwhites." I don't know how cacao would taste, especially in wood. BTW I can't say cacao without thinking about Portlandia.

Thank you Ron for not slapping me in the face with pumpkin spices. This tastes of hand-cut, fresh squeezed pumpkin and fresh grated nutmeg. It has an elderflower finish, a little astringent and totally refreshing.

With a great barrel-beer I tend to forget the base: The malt bill and hop order. This beer has a smooth mouthfeel, light but lingering bitter finish. I appreciate the lower abv. and think more alcohol would have made this too sharp. La Parcela has great malic sourness, orange pithiness, marigold leaf. Restraint plus highly evolved wood equals a pinnacle of refreshment. This could have come from a Belgian valley. Fantastic! Superb! "highly evolved"
