COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale Aged In Wine Barrels With Strawberries and Nectarines When summer comes to California’s Farmer’s Markets, the stands explode with mountains of mouth watering stone fruit and plump strawberries. Aged in used wine barrels for a year, this refreshing & tart wild ale was made with sweet coastal strawberries from Swanton Berry Farms and high-summer crimson baby nectarines from Blossom Bluff Farms. Here’s to our California summer harvest!

Soft straw blonde pour with 1 finger of thin fizzy white head. Wonderful aroma, fully ripe strawberries upfront with a wonderful lactic acidity and subtle peachy notes. Awesome flavor, full acidity upfront that builds throughout to the finish. Strawberry rules the taste with a subtle stone fruit note in the background.

Bottle at tasting. I really enjoy the berry-centric sours and this did not disappoint. Sour strawberries all over this, not overly tart but enough to make it very good. Strawberries were sublime!

Cory (239) - , California, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle. Sour citrus, strawberry preserve, warhead candy, with clean finish. This a very tart with the sweet berry notes underneath. Great sour that is a little heavy on the sour end for my liking but my buddy loved it.

Pour is extremely hazed yellow with a white head that disappears immediately. Nose is strong brett and barrel. leathery, light tangerine skin and a touch sour. Taste is a little brighter. Much more fruity brett, pineapple, peach, tangerine. Leathery and dusty towards back with a moderately sour finish and strong carbonation. Light body and prickly on the palate.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 006: Cascade-tastic 01 on 02/21/2014. Hazy golden color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Strawberry, cloves and yeast in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of sweet strawberries, nectarine, oak and funky yeast. The finish is fruity with a strawberry and oak aftertaste. Good beer all around.

gyllenbock (4091) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2014
At Jupiter during Sour Sunday 2014. (my first one from this brewery) Almost clear orange/golden with a small head. This was a suprise, really refreshing and with a pleasant sourness. Berries, oak, funk and strawberries. Quite a lot of bubbles and with a nice balanced finish.
