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.

2011 vintage, Batch #7 uncorked in Fall 2011.
375 mL bottle poured into snifter glass.

2012 vintage, batch unknown; tapped at Hollingshead Deli (Orange, CA) on 20-Feb-12
Poured into tulip glass.

Softer side of being sour w/ nice balance of acetone and sourness. Definitely pick up the cherries and the wine presence from the oak barrels.

Overall, this is the standard cherry/wine sour that I gauge all others of similar type. This one's nearly flawless.
