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: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Batch #4. Poured from a 375 ml cork n cage bottle into a Bell's tulip.

A- pours a dark copper with a 3" light tan head. Big trails and patches of lacing remain on the glass.

S- huge vinegar, tart cherries, oak, vinous notes

T- tart cherries, vinegar, vinous notes, oak, earthiness

M- medium body and high carbonation. Huge pop of the cork. Effervescent and dry, with a palate wrecking sour and dry aftertaste.

O- 8/10 sourness, amazing sour! From the nose I expected more cherry but being 4 years old it makes sense the the cherries may have faded. Just enough cherry to balance the vinegar and sourness.
