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!

Off the hook, pure sour strawberry liquid bliss, i hope they make this again. Really knockout beer. Pink body and head, tons of alpine strawberry notes and flavors plus some slight green and earth to balance ot.

Bottle shared by daknole. Thanks bro! The beer is hazy gold with a thin, wispy cap. Aromas of strawberry, funk, citrus, oak. Lovely aroma and the flavor does not disappoint. Beautiful balance and teeming with fruit character. Strawberry and juicy oranges with a piquant finish. I would love to have this again. Highly recommended.

"Really nice interplay between the berries, citrus, barrels and funk in this brew. Light in the mouth but acidic and crazy complex. Medium sour. Best of the 3 Farmers Reserve so far, and they’ve all been nice."

Bottle thanks to the local group for sharing. Pours a cloudy light orange with a small foamy ring of head. Aromas are strawberry syrup, fresh squeezed lemons, barnyard brett funk, and wet, musty wood. Tastes like fresh strawberries, sour oranges, barnyard, and white wine. Moderately sour with a nice sharp, tart finish. Very good sour.

Thanks to Muthacack over on RBT. Pours a hazy golden color with a slight pink hue to it with a thick white head that lingers. Aroma is a bunch of funk, citrus and a hint of strawberry. The tartness in the taste is right on the money with this one. A nice blend of citrus and strawberry but it isn’t over powering. The tartness and fruit complement each other nicely. Finish is dry, tart with a pleasant fruitiness. Fantastic beer.

bleeng (1595) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle thanks to Jimmy. Pours bright hazy yellow with substantial carbonation. Huge barnyard funk reminding me of the best of some Belgian farmhouse ales. The fruit in this beer is settled but there are hints of chardonnay wine barrels. Refreshing and delicious.. Well done. Need more from this brewery.
