Bomber from tornado lightly chilled
Cork pops like bubbly
Pours a clear gold with nice white foamy head
Smells like chardonnay.
There is a funky grape juice aroma.
Head dissipates quickly.
Taste explodes in my mouth. More funky grape. It starts sweet, but ends dry. The beer has a nice body and is not too heavy or cloying..
Not tasting the wood from the barrel.
Creamy buttery chardonnay comes through in the end in a good way. I am glad I tried it and enjoy it, but do not need to spend $80 again for it.

Poured into a tulip glass. Avery clear golden color with a medium white head. Aroma was as white wine, lemon, and stone fruit. The taste followed with a tart cherry flavor and floral notes. A clean dry backbone. Overall a fantastic beer.

At last, I got to try this one. The hallmark of this one is the complexity. There are layers upon layers of sour fruit, wood, mineral earthiness, dank funk, and acidic fruits. The smell is a fruity horse blanket, with plenty of musk and funk to go around. Carbonation is a little high, but otherwise wonderful in the feel. A well made beer that stands the test of time

05/2016 - 2014 vintage - No effs given about the price for on-site consumption as this beer is truly complex, multi-layered, and beautiful. Semi-sweet, oak, funky, nice tartness; balanced.
