Shared a bottle of this one last night with Schmittymack. Poured a clear amber-brown color with only a few bubbles on top. Aromas of oak, tobacco and some light horse blanket. On the palate, this one was light to medium bodied, kind of thin and watery, slightly tart, with flavors of oak and some dark fruit.

On tap and as far as I can tell this hasn't been added to BA yet.

A: Pours a murky rusty red with a decent amount of head. Very nice lacing.

S: Initially the oak comes across the nose which provides a very "soft" aroma. Along with the wood is a fairly assertive American hop scent which is charecteristically citrus but becomes honeydew melon-like when combined with the yeast and the oak.

T: The flavor profile is quite complex. There's certainly a hop presence which actually takes the forefront with citrus, a little pine, and noticeable bitterness. Then it fades to a lemon grass and melon like flavor, some funk, and just a touch of sour. I read that this beer comes across as a funky IPA and I find that to be pretty spot on. Only thing that I'm not keen on with the flavor is a sweetness that to me is not welcome but to some I'm sure it'd be just right.

M: Lingers on the tongue but is not too thick.

D: Surprising that this is 9.5% ABV. Pretty darn drinkable.

O: A great brew. I would definitely recommend it, especially if you like beers like Le Terroir.
