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!

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy strawberry, tropical fruits, and a hint of lemon. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a small white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet strawberry. The finish has sour lemon, citrus, white wine, and sour grapefruit. It’s light bodied with lively (but not prickly) carbonation.

mcberko (5362) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2013
375mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is extremely fruity, bringing out intense nectarine, some strawberries, wild yeast, and some funkiness. Flavour is very fruity, full of medium sour fruits, chardonnay, wild yeast and some funk. The specific fruit quality is not very noticeable - it seems like a peachy sourness. Puckering dey mouthfeel. Very highly drinkable. Great stuff.

Bottle shared by Tony. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Berry aromas. Crisp, clean, and refreshing. Tasty strawberries up front with sour stone fruits in the finish. Not overly complex but nevertheless very tasty. Above average mouthfeel and a good body. A perfect session beer for a sunny day.

dfearnley (762) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle to ceramic Eeyore mug :( Strawberries, lemon, raspberry, and yeast. Hard to see this one in a ceramic mug, but I think it's a cloudy amber; spotty and creamy head, nice lacing. The taste is sour with a nice fruity sweetness behind and transitioning back to a lasting tartness. Nicely done.

Craft Clerkenwell tasting. Thanks to Aaron. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light palate, a little crispy. Strawberries and cream! Light peach and a touch of sherbet and oak. Light dry finish. Great strawberry vibe on this one.
