Notes / Commercial Description:
Juicy is inspired by our love for New Zealand—the adventures had therein, and the journeys grown from without. Our love for the landscape, the agriculture, and the spirited reflection of its inhabitants a decade ago has led to the vision of what lies before you. After more than a year conditioning in wine barrels with our resident microflora, the beer that we have referred to as Juicy is now ready to be enjoyed.

Appearance: With a nice hearty, vigorous pour, the beer produced about a 2.5 finger of soft, white foamy head. About half of the foam laced the glass after about a minute or two of sitting.

Aroma: It smells of wine barrel, oak, tart cherry and other fruity aromas.

Taste: On the first sip, I pick up some tart funk, some straw, some wine barrel. At the very end of the sip, there is a really subtle, slight bitter finish. It is really refreshing and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: It seems to carry a lower carb feel to it, but it works for me

Overall: This lived up to the hype for me. It was a really good, enjoyable beer for me. I like what the wine barrels did to the overall taste of the beer. Thanks to jhavs for making this one happen.

Poured from a bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear golden copper pour. 1.5 fingers of foamy white head... falls fast, great rim of lacing.

S: Tart and oaky... white wine and tannin, lightly fruity.

T/F: Follows the nose. Pleasantly tart without being sour. Strong barrel character... somewhat dry and fruity. White wine... grape must... light peach. Very mild hop presence... all the flavors mingle together quite well. Brett is there but well incorporated. The finish is semi-dry and tart fruit.

O: An awesome barrel-aged Saison, and a real treat. Very glad I got to try this one.
