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.

A. Copper hues pour without any semblance of foam but there is some trickling streams of bubbles spattered about. Slight haze.

S. Oak, earth, tart cherries, mild funk

T/M. Yum! A light tartness plays very well with a light cherry sweetness, dry oak along with the tartness give a puckering feel. Well carbonated and feels effervescent. As it warms, more barnyard funk comes out.

O. Quite delicious and I was very happy to drink it!

Raul is up in it at Haven's 4th anniversary in Orange, CA and he is feelin' it hard with a Supplication. And to think that this 90 degree heat is melting Raul; no no no, it's the Supplication. Beyonce one said, "life is but a dream;" and if that dream were Raul's, it would be filled with Supplication. Not overly sweet, not syrupy, just clean and smooth like, well, Supplication.

Yep!
