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!

On draft at Trappist Provisions. It pours a super cloudy pinkish purple color with a massive pink head. Lots of sediment in this one. They poured about 20 glasses out of the keg and still had sediment problems. Oh well. The aroma is big time blackberry and raspberry. Good amount of acid on the nose. The flavor is also filled with tart berry fruit. Heavy lactic acid as well with some solid berry sweetness to balance it out. Not much barrel or funk, just tons of mouth puckering fruit. Not yeasty or muddled despite the cloudy appearance. Maybe it’s just pectin haze. Pretty delightful stuff.

b3shine (7876) - Indiana, USA - DEC 13, 2015
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.

jredmond (7241) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2015
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 (15468) - Dublin, 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.
