Appreciation is a barrel-aged farmhouse ale fermented with boysenberries and our resident funk. After several months in red wine barrels, it has taken on a mouth-watering acidity, a whiff of the barnyard, and stronger aromas and flavors attributed to the fruit. Appreciation’s ruby red color entices, welcoming another sip, another clink of glasses with friends, another moment of contentment and contemplation. With gratitude, we humbly offer our appreciation. Sante!

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a very hazy dark raspberry flesh with lighter pink head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells tart, fruity, oaky, and funky with a nice boysenberry presence. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant medium-bodied mouthfeel. Great stuff.

Bottle sampled at THE FESTIVAL 2015 in St. Petes with Vinny. Pours a deep purple body with thick pink lace. Nose is tart sour berry fruits and lacto. Gentle tartness floats across the palate with additional fruit notes, cherries, lemons, sour lemonade, lime and vanilla yogurt.

brokensail (15269) - San Leandro, California, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Bottle @ La Palma Sour Fest 2015. Bright reddish beer with a nice pink head. Sort of a berry yogurt profile to it. Maybe a hint of fruit punch in there with the intensity of the fruit addition. Lots of cherry and berry skin qualities, some sweet tarts, and maybe even a hint of jello. Interesting stuff.

Bottleshare thanks to homer. Pours a ruby red, small white head. Aroma is tart and fruity. Get some nice berry character with the sour. Taste is fruity, tart, pretty sour. Very acidic, but not over powering. Good beer.

Bottle thanks to mike. Nose is huge fruit and light tartness. More funky than tart. Purple ish pout. Small white head. Taste is initially very woody with tannins. Only lightly drying but short of astringent. Still very fruit forward but still tart. Wow. Thanks!
