Notes/Commercial Description:
A sour ale with 2 lbs. of Stone Farms Passion Fruit per Barrel. There is lots of red and rosé wine flavor here, as well as plenty of oak. Some acetic sharpness and lactic acid sourness in the flavor and on the nose. Tropical fruit flavors from the Passion Fruit, and a distinct guava and berry note from the two types of wine barrels make for a distinctive, intensely fruity beer.

This version was aged in red wine barrels and was part of a tap takeover at Tap + Bottle in Tucson, Ariz..

The red wine barrel aging appears to have turned the beer into a sour-like beer. Not overly so, but enough to make it unique.

If it shows up in your area, give it a try.

Stone Reason Be Damned Aged In Red Wine Barrels on tap at the 2014 Most Arrogant Bar Bash (Barleys in Greenvillle, SC).

Pours a beautiful, clear dark copper with an excellent head and lacing.

Excellent wine barrel effects. Fruity/floral aroma. Great complexity and balance. Both tart and sweet. Dry finish. Tastes better than it smells until the aftertaste when too much wine barrel remains.

O: This sipper is interesting and complex
