Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 02-25-2005

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.

Appearance – Pours a clear amber red color with a nice head and good lacing that quickly runs back into the glass.

Smell – Sour cherry, vinegar, oak, and pinot. It’s a really nice smell.

Taste – The first thing I notice is that it’s not overly sour (I’m not a fan of super sour beer). Tastes of pinot, vinegar, and oak. A really good sour!

Mouthfeel – Good carbonation, dry, not too sour, with a pleasant funky aftertaste.

Drinkability – I’m generally not a huge fan of sours, but this is an exceptional one to me.

Bottled 1/07/14. Pours slightly cloudy (I poured to fast....) kind of dark rose color with small off white head. Nose is sour vinegar - if it was a wine it would be going back! Bacteria is here in force.
Sharp acidity hits first bam! then an incredible sourness hits the back of the throat BAM. Second sip is better as the mouth adjusts, subtly cherry comes out, sour cherry, white grapes? Lots of funk.
