Notes/Commercial Description:
Brown Ale aged in used Pinot Noir barrels from local Sonoma County wineries. It is aged for about 12 months with sour cherries, brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus added to each barrel. Flavors from the cherries, Pinot Noir and oak balance each other nicely with a little funk from the brett.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

batch 04x4

Opens with a POP. Pours amber orange. Sits in the glass brown/orange and cloudy. Some yeast sediment floating around. Nice coating on the glass.

Smell is exceptional! Pino noir, corriader, booze, grapes, tomatoes, apple cider vinegar.
There is a distinctt tone of brettanomyces here, like some lambics

Tastes sour up front. VERY different. Braggs apple cider vinegar, sour wine, and many sweet overly ripe fruits. The
carbonation makes it seem like it is a very flavorful chamapagne.

A bit too sour for me. makes the mouthfeel a bit difficult to
rate. but still above average here. Very carbonated.
Champangnee like.

drinkibility...same notes as the above moutfeel. Exceptional originality in this brew giving it the high scores it deserves.

Serving type: bottle

2010 Vintage on tap at Belmont Station

A: a medium brown color with a light red tint. Small off white head.

S: really nice cherries, some wine, and a little funk.

T: follows the nose. Tart cherries immediately, some blackberry maybe? A hint of oak from the barrel.

M: high carbonation. Nice and prickly. Refreshing dry finish.

O: freaking fantastic! Need to find more bottles for my cellar.

Serving type: on-tap
