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

Poured into a schooner (not my first choice).
Deep copper in color with a thin, cream-colored, head, this had a softer nose than I expected; subdued scents of cherries and grapes, with a little bit of oak. On my initial taste the beer is only moderately tart, and flavors include cherries, grape must, and fresh blackberries from early in the season; it finishes dry with traces of oak. Hardly any sweetness at all. The carbonation I do sense quickly dissipates. Nearly as good as the bottle I remembered...

Serving type: on-tap

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

Appearance: It has a nice murky orangy/brown color to it with some sediment. It has a nice light beige head that dies down moderately and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of tart cherries, grapes, Pinot Noir, brett funk and some oak.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has alot of tart cherries, a definite sourness, grapes, Pinot Noir, woody oak and some brett funk. Great balance.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas.

Serving type: bottle
