On tap at TH.

Cloudy, pale yellow pour with a thin white head. Funky, yeasty aroma (bretty?), spicy fruits, grape, pear, apple, maybe some earthy barrel notes, but really nothing that indicated "whiskey," which it seems was just meant to be a very subtle element in the beer. Tangy on the palate, juicy and fresh, citrus pith, apple, pear, white wine, earth, yeasty funk, faint vanilla sweetness. Again, there was really no whiskey I could detect in this, and seeing how it was a second or third use barrel, it wasn't surprising. Crisp and tart right to the end...possibly the most successful tartness "profile" that has come out in a TH beer. Light-medium body, juicy mouthfeel, clean and refreshing, yet still assertively tart. Kind of like a much better version of CultonSour.
