Mad River John Barleycorn Barleywine
Early on in Hoosier Beer Geek history, we reached out to the folks at Cavalier (and Mat Gerdenich specifically) to get an idea of how they handle their beer business. Mat's been a friend ever since, and he's been quite generous in providing us with a half barrel of Mad River's John Barleycorn Barleywine.
Mad River says:
Our Seasonal Offering. We honor the Harvest & Holidays each year by brewing a traditional Barleywine style ale, using a variety of ingredients.Sounds like a proper fall kick-off to me. We'll have it for you at the Hoosier Beer Geek Third Anniversary Roundtable at Sun King Brewing on August 22nd.
Brewed in small 10-barrel batches with Certified Organic barley malt, this crimson hued ale has a sweet caramel nose with a zesty spicy, citrus taste. It has a slight hop finish and leaves a warm, tingling sensation on the tongue.
