Aromas start out tart, with low vanilla pod and clean alcohol, followed by maple syrup, brown sugar and whole grain toast. These are followed by mouthwatering aromatics of dried, sour cherries, dried golden apricots, fleshy bright green raisins, fresh rubber and low tar. The beer has a light tan head, and a very fine carbonation that continues to cling on the sides of the glass well after finishing the last sip. The color is a hazy golden amber with a slight ruby tinge. First hit with sour lemon juice, freshly milled white flour followed by a slate-like minerality. Aftertaste is of ground cinnamon, yogurt and rubber. Finishes with a tart, mouthwatering twang. The mouthfeel has a low, lip-coating waxiness, low body, high carbonation and prickling, volatile acidity. A low alcohol heat (not warming or unpleasant) create clean, pleasant, drying tannins. Overall, this is a clean and complex barrel-aged beer, though fusels and volatile acidity are detractions from the unique mouthfeel and aroma.
