American Wild Ale |  7.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

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.

Tulip

A - cloudy orange/copper sunset, one finger off white beautiful head with tiny bubbles that look like diamonds and a little bit of lacing

S - cherries, a young bottle of red, sweet candy sugar, lots of yummy oak, very yeasty, maltiness, soil and an all around awesome funk

T - sour funky yeast, tight Pinot noir, lots of oak, tons of grain, sweet notes on the back end, tons of cherries, candy sugar, lemon grass and tons of minerals and terrior

M - full bodied, medium acidity, great balance, nice complexity and long finish

D - this is as refreshing as it is interesting. This is something different, but in the most awesome way possible. They aren't kidding when they say "sours" when it comes to this one. But with the wine, cherries and a great sweet back end it is a beer once you have you'll crave again and again

Final thought - at $12 a pop and a nice 7% abv this is a great beer. Hard to find at times, but if you do find one, buy one and age it as well

I love this beer. I don't live in the area so I can't do a proper review of this beer, but I just want to add the praise that this beer deserves. It is so good. I will drive out of my way to visit the brew pub in Santa Rosa. The Russian River beers are outstanding and this is no exception.
