It's #ShareSunday! @greatraftbeer makes exceptional beer, regardless of the style. From German Lagers, to IPAs, and sours, these guys make great beer. This is their chardonnay barrel-aged Wild Ale refemented on peaches. I cellared this bottle for a year and was ecstatic to see the transformations within it. Let's check it out. .
Name: You, Me, and Everyone We Know (Batch 2)
Brewery: Great Raft Brewing, Shreveport, Louisiana
Style: American Wild Ale
NOTE: The Chardonnay barrel characteristics, which were overwhelming when fresh, were now enjoyably subtle. The peach juiciness was just as strong as before. I wanted more tartness from this, but at least the tobacco and hay funk grew stronger with age. I have one more bottle and am excited to see what two years of cellaring will do.
OVERALL RATING: 4.5 / 5.0
