a very small pour, clean deep amber in color with a finger of beige colored head leaving behind a nice trace of lacing. a nice hoppy aroma, west coast ipa style grapefruit presence, lots of malty sweetness in the nose, some oxidation. a very different flavor than i'm used to in barleywines.. this one being almost fruity (like a quad).. getting a nutty pecan like note, some barley, some rye notes, caramel sweetness, raisins, dates, grapefruit. full body with a creamy mouthfeel, moderate amount of carbonation.

glad i got to try a can of this one, definitely don't think i would've liked an entire 4pack.

B-wine in a can, kick ass!!!

Appearance. Pours a deep caramel, topped with half a finger of off white head.

Smell. Big lemons here, some orange and grapefruit rind, and caramel malts underneath with just a bit of pine needles.

Taste. Lemons again! Lots of lemon flavour including the rind, but not the sourness. Orange and grapefruit rinds again as well and some sweet caramel malts backing up all those citrusy hops.

Mouthfeel. Fairly full body, medium-low carbonation.

Overall. Maybe not the best b-wine I've tasted but love the citrus dominant flavours. Works very well on this summer evening.

8.4 oz can, bottom stamped 2/5/13.

bright amber colored highlights. little head. smells of booze soaked fruit, aggressive earthy hops. taste also has the sharp bite of booziness. caramel malt, herbal hops, then finishes dry. medium body, but slick and oily on the the tongue. lower carbonation.

a little hot, although that could be expected for a fresh barleywine, room for improvement in the flavors too.
