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: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Thick three finger off white head with excellent retention and nice lacing on a clear copper with burnt orange hue.

S: yeast, bubble gum, sour cherries, cane sugar and tangerine.

T: sour cherries, oak, caramel, tart citrus, excellent level of sourness. It's very complex as one would expect.

M: medium body and light to moderate carbonation.

Overall: this is a very good beer. Smooth even with the tartness but it's one of those for me that may have been overhyped. The degree of sourness lessens over time and it loses some of its luster. It's still delicious.
