Today truly is the first day of spring! Clear instead of hazy, has a malt backbone and nice hops. Just a bit of off flavour on the back end.Earned the Better Together (Level 6) badge!

Starts out tart again like many of these barrel aged, but it has a real nice character that opens up and mellows over gradual sipping.Earned the Middle of the Road (Level 31) badge!
Potent. Very much characterized by the barrels. Almost viscous. Really well aged.
Not tart like the 2016. Got more of a whisky note, but also a somewhat harsh bitterness at the back that fades with time. Pretty good.
