Sonoma Pride DauenhauerSonoma Pride Dauenhauer
Notes: Brewed and bottled to a moderate strength of 6% ABV, Dauenhauer is a copper colored well hopped domesticated wild ale (but not an IPA). Compared to its more delicate sister beer Amasa, Dauenhauer is darker and exhibits more hop character in both the aroma and flavor. It can be consumed now, or aged. The use of Brettanomyces yeast in the bottle conditioning process lends a rustic characteristic to the beer. If aged, many of the unique yeast qualities in the beer will become even more evident.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thick head; a few shards of lacing are produced

Smell: Bready and slightly funky, with a hint of the biscuit and perhaps a touch of pear

Taste: Funky at the outset, with pear and bready flavors underpinning; some musty bitterness, after the swallow, and a dry finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonaiton

Overall: Bottled on 10/15/13, this beer has held together reasonably well, and the Brett has done its job

Thanks, pagesofphotographs, for the opportunity

Pours a hazy, maize color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of alcohol, bacterial funk, yeast, slight grass, herbs, hops, sweet malt, and a hint of oatmeal. Fits the style of an American Wild Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of alcohol, bacterial funk, yeast, slight grass, herbs, hops, and sweet malt. Overall, a little too sweet, but good appearance, aroma, blend, and complexity.

This pour from a bottle dated 6/3/15 and was well chilled. It poured a hazy light yellow orange color. The nose does contain some of the funk from the yeast in this beer but the hops are also present. The taste is also from the type of yeast used in this blend but a nice smooth beer has come from this blend. It took most of the bottle to grow on me but in all this is a really good beer.
