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.

Received in a trade. My first sour beer, so take this review with a grain of salt. Or a dash of vinegar.

Pours a cloudy dark amber red, looks like wine. There's a one inch fizzy head that recedes quickly, not much lacing.

Smells like sour vinegar, spoiled wine, with some underlying grapes and cherries.

The taste is similar. I cannot tell if the beer is supposed to taste this way, because I am a sour noob. However, it honestly tastes gross. So sour, puckeringly so, with no other redeeming qualities. I can't finish it, my only drain pour ever. So vinegary, this would taste better on my salad.

Medium bodied, crisp but acidic mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

This one's just not for me.
