enjoyed this at a barrel aged tasting on 2011-08-06. this was a SUPER amazing treat (thanks alex!!!). apparently this is xtra gold aged in wine barrel with rose hips and elderflowers.

the pour was super murky yellow orange and the bottle was an unexpected gusher. it smells fantastic! VERY floral. sweet, but earthy...the flowers dominate the smell, can't really describe it other than strong flower with wonderful sweetness. the flavor also is extremely unique and delicious. again, floral...almost potpourri in taste. the mouth is good, the carbination is in line despite the gusher that this brew was. overall, this was a super awesome treat. tasted delicious and was a major highlight of the evening.


note on the label:
Megan & I would like to thank you for sharing in our special day. we are so happy you could help us celebrate the beginning of our lives together. to commemorate this day we decided to brew a special beer. one that will stand the test of time, like any great marriage. aged in oak wine barrels, flavored with rose hips & elderflowers, this beer is both delicate & powerful. Megan, I love you with all my heart. I look forward to a long beer filled life together! 8-21-2010
