About Wait…what?: The quarter cask (30 gallons) used in this maturation is much smaller than the typically used standard American barrel (53 gallons), imparting more oak influence on the rye here. Red berries and old-fashioned root beer resound in this powerful 

Tasting Panel Note: We looked at each other as though we had been smelling the same magic potion the druid Getafix brewed to give Asterix and his fellow Gauls superhuman strength. The main ingredients were various herbs found around the village and in the surrounding forest. Can you recall how Asterix reacted on drinking the potion? Well, that was how we felt – “Pow"-erful! Heat and spice galore! Water to the rescue, as the nose developed into muscle rub as well as eucalyptus and prune juice. The palate benefited hugely, with flavours reminding us of an old-fashioned root beer blending sassafras and sarsaparilla root, spices, herbs, barks and berries.
