Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
A blonde ale fermented with a special strain of yeast, then aged in French oak chardonnay barrels. Flavors of wine and oak absorb into the brew throughout twelve months of aging. During this aging process, a secondary fermentation occurs using a yeast strain disliked by most brewers and winemakers called Brettanomyces.

I would say this is the tartest of the bottled Russian River sours. Very light and crisp.

Yellow fizzy body with white pillowy head. Somewhat sweet, sour taste that is both refreshing and delishious. Juicy pineapple, pear, and sour grapes.
