Ale Aged In Wine Barrels With Strawberries and Nectarines When summer comes to Californiaís Farmerís 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. Hereís to our California summer harvest!

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.

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.

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.

Flavor of lemon, strawberry, yogurt, tart candy, and lactic acid. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a tart, crisp mouthfeel. Tasty sour ale.

HonusWagner (2127) - Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Aroma has a hint of strawberry puree with citrus accompaniment. Taste has a bit less strawberries, light sweetness, a bit tart but not overwhelming, drinkable as hell. I wish the fruity flavors were more pronounced but still a damn good beer.
