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.

Bottled 12/2012

A: Pours a dark reddish/copper colored body. Dense, frothy head runs down the glass with no lacing but settles into a silky rim reminiscent of a latte.

S: Tart cherries. Mega funk. Oak. Brown sugary sweetness. Apple cider. Grapefruit and citrus. This smells brilliant.

T: Wow. There is a ton of funky sweet tart, balanced with loads of cherries and a white grape juice flavor in the finish. There is a perfect amount of oak to balance and round the whole thing out.

M: Heavy carbonation. Medium body. Puckering tart. Prickly. Dry.

O: Every bit of the hype is warranted on this one. Mind bending good.

A. Copper hues pour without any semblance of foam but there is some trickling streams of bubbles spattered about. Slight haze.

S. Oak, earth, tart cherries, mild funk

T/M. Yum! A light tartness plays very well with a light cherry sweetness, dry oak along with the tartness give a puckering feel. Well carbonated and feels effervescent. As it warms, more barnyard funk comes out.

O. Quite delicious and I was very happy to drink it!
