Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a medium white head with light retention. Aroma of funky yeast with vinous notes is quite interesting. Taste is a mix of vinous notes with some citrusy notes and some barnyard notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really enjoyed the barnyard notes in this one but I would prefer it even more if the acidity was more subdued.

Big thanks to pushkinwow for sharing the bottle!

Hazy, golden orange color with a fizzy head, dissipating quickly. Funky, grassy with some citrus and a bit of cat pee. Again, big funky taste with some light vinous notes and acidy. The finish is a bit thin and falls off quickly. A tasty beer, but pales when held next to its counterparts.

Consumed during a CD4-10 tasting. Not sure the exact components but believe I heard this was primarily wine barrel-aged dry-hopped Susan with a few other components thrown in.

One of my favorites of the series. The hops add a nice juiciness that complements the wine barrel tartness and adds a nice complexity. Flavors of citrus, oak, lemons, oranges, and wine come out with a dry finish.
