This is an excellent beer, I like it. It's potent but the barrel aging really shines thru with balance of the flavor. Top notch beer that I acquired a growler full of that was aged a year.

I'm just not that big on the style and it was cloyingly sweet.

The flavors present a lot of tropical citrus with oranges, tangerines, nectarines and kumquat. Additional flavors of maple and fig accompany a wheat and wine. I never found this cloying and it was very smooth.
