Picked up in a trade with ksecler. 2013 vintage poured into a stemmed tulip.

Pours a light amber/straw-like hue, one inch white head dissipates to a small ring with noticeable lacing, slightly hazed with a small amount of sediment. Aroma is malty and fruity - hints of Belgian yeast in the mix as well. Big malt presence in this one, sweet red apples, burnt sugar, slight tartness and no presence of booze what so ever, finish is bitter. Refreshing and effervescent mouthfeel, light bodied but not thin.

My first review!

Pours a hazy apricot. Nice appearance with 1/2 finger white foam that disappears quickly. Spotty lacing. Smell is sour and fruity. Faint hop aroma. Taste is sweet and tangy from the wheat barley with lemony notes. Not a big malty, boozy, hop bomb. A barleywine that tastes a bit like wine. Light alcohol on the finish is well hidden. Slick and smooth medium mouthfeel with low carbonation.

Overall a unique and imaginative take on the barleywine style. Easy drinking, the bottle finishes way too quickly. One of my favorites. Well done Two Bros!!

Really a strange but likable beer. I did no know what to think when I got this in a trade so I cellared it for yet another year.

A) dark gold with hint of red . Initially a two finger head that went away over five minutes. Some lacing.

S) smells wine like, grapes and sweet fruit dominate. Perhaps cherry smell

M) moderate carbonation ,and a thin mouth feel again more like a moscato than a beer

T) hard to explain. Tartness that is mild initially gives way to sweet fruit. I get a little died fruits like plums .

Overall a different style than I'm used to but very pleasant to sip on. I never had fresh but there is little alcohol burn although I'm clueless to the constant, my guess is not too strong anyway. Very likable sort of sour.

Reviewing based on its current state in June 2017. Pours a somewhat murky brown-orange, in the range of a typical unfiltered wheatwine. Some floaties and sediment at the bottom of the bottle to be aware of. Smells of plum and gumdrops, with hints of pineapple, lychee, and other tropical fruits--partly due to oxidation, which is certainly taking hold of the steering wheel. Much lower carbonation on the tongue than was suggested from the fizz on the pour. Malt-focused on the palate, primarily sweet but with just a touch of tartness that is surprisingly restrained after so long developing in the bottle. Quite enjoyable for an older drink.
