Ballast Point White Wine Barrel Aged Sour Wench

My God this new release from the bad asses at Ballast Point sounds amazing. I'm digging most of these wine "inspired" (related?) beers that breweries are doing lately.

Ballast Point: "After years of exploring a variety of oak barrels and beer styles, we’ve decided to bottle a few of our favorites. Named after the site of our barrel-aging cellar, our Trade St. Collection celebrates the deep and distinctive flavors of barrel-aged beers. 
Our newest release in this series is a White Wine Barrel Aged Sour Wench, available in 4pk bottles. After resting in both chardonnay and sauvignon blanc barrels for over six months, our Sour Wench emerges with aromas of freshly sliced white peach, citrus, woody oak tannins and rich vanilla. Within every sip you’ll taste hints of crushed berries and ripe apricots with a deliciously buttery smoothness from the chardonnay barrels, while finishing dry from the sauvignon blanc. Easy-drinking for a barrel-aged beer, it’s tart, refreshing, and delightfully smooth."
