Left Hand Brewing Widdershins Barleywine Style Ale

Other than being a lot of fun to say, Left Hand Brewing Widdershins is a really, really solid barleywine style ale.  I mean really solid.  The bottle notes 2007 for bottle conditioning (and you can see it), so this has been sitting at least a year and a half.  The entire crew thought highly of it, as well.   The nose was nice and hoppy with slight sweetness that lent itself to the oak aging.  The body came through, then, smooth and mild but with plenty of flavor and character.  The end has a nice little bitterness to it, bringing the style to a full close.  Overall this is a great brew that deserves your attention!

Check out their site for some good info on this brew… seasonal, part of the Big Mo seris, 9.1% ABV, 70 IBUs, etc.

For a definition os widdershins, though, you need to go to Wikipedia… 🙂
