Blonde Ale aged in Chardonnay barrels with brett, lacto, and pedio (base beer is Temptation).

This beer is made only once a year in conjunction with our month-long fundraiser for the Sutter Breast Care Services of Santa Rosa during Breast Cancer Awareness Month! 100% of the proceeds of this beer will be used to help men and women in our community in their fight against breast cancer!

Pours a very dark pink almost red color with pink head. Raspberries, and lots of them, with some oak, light fruited chardonnay wine, and funk on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes tart and dry. Rivals Atrial Rubicite from Jester King.
