COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Swanton Berry Farm is nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Warmed by the summer sun during the day and cooled by humid marine breezes at night, Swanton’s fields grow some of the sweetest strawberries in California. We hoarded these magical berries and added them to our Dogpatch Sour ale before aging it in used wine barrels. This complex beer is our ode to the fertile coastal farmlands of California.

Just like the dog patch but with the added fruits. Dog patch sour with strawberry in aroma and flavor. Both are a must.

$5 Sunday draft at Aces and Ales. Pours orang brown with an off white head. Aroma is citrus, acetic, sour strawberry. Flavor follows, great balance of citric tart, acetic sour and dry strawberry sweet. Finish is mild acetic, sour strawberries. Love this Farmers Reserve series from Almanac, so far!

bottle, no strawberry on the aroma, some on the flavor, vinegar and lactic acid take over. Not much complexity.

Bottle fram Bursprak. Many thanks. Amber orange colour, creamy foam disappears quickly. Very tart acedic with notes of vinegar. Light fruity, hints of strawberry. Refreshing but a bit onedimensional.

DYCSoccer17 (3448) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 7, 2015
10 oz sample at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Aroma has some strawberry, fruity, and cheesy notes. Some acetic and lacto funk, too. Hazy, fairly opaque orange body with essentially no head. Starts quite tart and astringent. Acidic and acetic flavors in the middle. Pretty tart. Finishes with moderate milky lactose flavors. Not bad.

falco242 (319) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Pours an amber red, and smells great - a hint of berries but mostly a tart funk. Not getting a ton of berry in the taste but the sour is so nicely balanced that I don’t mind. Tart and sweet and a bit of funk but not too barnyardy. Solid overall.

gEUS (1375) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2015 375 ml bottle at home. Pours dark orange to amber with incredibly beautiful carbonation effects in the glass (while waltzing the beer in the glass). A greasy red fruit aroma, much alike boiling red fruit jam, some faint strawberries. Medium body with an imminent tart attack and some fresh strong acidity, but not overwhelming as with the citrus and other versions. In the taste, the greasy character remains as well as the jammy strawberry-apricot jam notes. Nice beer

Bottle. Hazy Amber. Strawberry aroma. A hint of chocolate in the taste with light wine qualities and a tart mouthfeel. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Cloudy grapefruit juice with little head. Aroma is musty and lactic. Taste adds some strawberry juice. Medium sticky mouthfeel with moderate carb. Very solid.
