Flimsy hangnail of a head disappeared quickly leaving neglible lacing.

Smell of brown sugar, pitted fruit, toffee, malts.

Very light carbonation with an oily feel.

What if you, being unfamiliar with oranges, bit into an unpeeled orange but inside the peel was actually toffee, brown sugar, rainier cherries, apricot. Ever think about that huh

I know that this is a draft only offering and i am reviewing a bottle...that is because barrelandzachary is badass and he counter-pressure filled this bottle for me.

Enjoyed from a wild heaven snifter.

a - glistening purple with a thin grey bubbly head...no creaminess that i love about the style. Looks like an american quad. Semi transparent, nice ruby tones. Spotty lacing.

s - nose is malty. Plum and nuts...some earthiness. Hints of the pinot oak chips, but subtle on the nose.

t/m - WOW, that is impressive! Opens with a really nice nuttiness and round plum flavors. Oak mellows things out...pinot is a glustening if not just a mental flavor. The feel though...OH DAT FEEL! Super smooth and silky. Abv is non existent. Is this quad juice?

o - overall, this beer is amazing. One of the best american quads i have tasted. It is nothing like a true belgian, but the feel is so juicy that you cant not love this...unless you are some beer hating alien of some sort, in which case, why would you even read this review? So there is that.

Cheers, great job on this beer!

Served from a growlerette I purchased from Taps in Atlanta. I've been wanting to try this for some time, and I have to say, it didn't disappoint. To me, this an excellent example of wood treatment for a beer. The marriage of the classic quad style with the wood and especially the Pinot Noir is beautiful. Fairly robust, but a bit less sweet and heavy than a traditional quad, you still get the bready dried winter fruits and the bit of spicebox combined with the bright cherry, forest floor, and vinous notes of the Pinot, as well as some vanilla and wood notes from the oak chip itself. Perfectly balanced and truly enjoyable. I found the carbonation level just right, and certainly wouldn't review it from a growler unless that was true. A great beer.
