Barrel Aged American Sour  ·  6.5% ABV

The beer pours a very hazy amber color, with a rosy, pinkish hue from the pureed strawberry floating in suspension. You may see a small amount of pink sediment in the bottom of some bottles if they manage to stand in one place long enough.

We searched for only the sweetest strawberries to add to this one, and the juicy aroma of those delicious fruits wafts commandingly off the glass. The lovely essence of California wine barrels mingles with the strawberry, highlighted by hints of barrel-aged funkiness.

The first sip is a bit of a surprise, as the super-tart Rhubarb jumps to the front of your taste buds to make itself known. Next comes the tannic character of the barrels and a moderate dose of Brett- and Lacto- induced funk.

The beer is definitely sour but not puckering, and as it warms in your hand the strawberries move closer and closer to the front of the stage. The finish is tart and dry, with hints of strawberry lingering between sips.
