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.

Served in a Tulip.

Appearance - Color is a little amber and crimson with very little head.

Aroma - Cherries, smells a lot like the pinot barrels.

Tast - Tart more like wine/champagne.

Mouthfeel - Fine bubbles like champagne.

Overall - I personally feel like its to hybrid of Wine/Champagne/Beer. I guess I dont like Pinot because I really like the Dupont more that this highly ranked choice from Russian River.

I dont think I will invest another $12.50 for this Sour.

Whole foods has Supplication, Redemption, and Damnation on shelfs now!
