Moon Burn is a golden ale with boysenberry, fermented with a mixed culture and aged in french oak. It was judged as BJCP Category 28C, Wild Specialty Beer. This beer has a moderately strong berry-like fruit aroma. Underneath lies the earthy aroma of oak. It pours an opaque radish color and has minimal head. The flavor is fruity and very lightly tart, subtly resembling the flavors often found in Flanders Red Ales. This beer finishes with low tannins, which dry it out. The carbonation is very low. Overall, the "wild" character of this beer is largely hidden, but the fruit character would make this an appealing choice for non-beer drinkers.
