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.

Bottle poured into a rocks glass.

Great look upon first pour - a dark amber/red. I am a newbie when it comes to wild ales aged with sour cherries in pinot noir bottles. However, this is the second time I have drank this beer and it is pretty damn good. Especially becuase I prefer IPA's and Stouts. Aroma is sour pinot noir, funk and cherries. Taste is might good with some sour, pinot, yeast, cherries and a hint of vanilla. Quite delicious and well balanced.
