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 - Pours a golden brown with what appears initially to be cloudy, but when viewed with back lighting actually has good clarity. Bubbles racing and suds present when swirled.

S - Sour apple jolly ranchers, cherries, oaky, yeast, pinot.

T - Tart cherries, pinot noir, oaky, some malts, layers of unique and different flavors. Sour puckers on the back of your palate, but balanced by a semi sweet and oak flavors in the back end.

O - One of the most unique brews I've ever experienced. I'm glad I did, as this style is not in my wheel house. If you ever get a chance to get your hands on this, it is def worth a try.
