COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Leighton (17195) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle shared during RBWG 2016. Pours unclear blood red with a frothy off-white head. Tart dried berries in the nose, fruit leather, light earth. Lightly sweet, fairly acidic, with tart berries, more leathery fruits, light funk. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Tart, cleansing finish with more berries, leather, earth, cellar, some woody dryness. Nice beer.

brokensail (15203) - 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.

hopdog (10731) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2014
750ml bottle ... well worth the trade. Poured a cloudy rubish, pinkish tinted with a smaller sized head. Fruity, vinous notes, some woodiness, and a lighter tartness and funkiness. Some citrus and berriness. Although on the subtle side, complex and everything melds well together.

DSG (10528) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 13, 2016
[1/31/16] Bottle sample at a hotel lobby bottle share during RBWG 2016 in Santa Rosa. Lovely purple color. Aroma of lots of berries, a bit of latex. Sour puckering flavor, lactic, lemon, lots of berries. Leaves the mouth dry. Medium-bodied. Great.

hopscotch (10522) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours murky and rosé with a small, creamy, off white head. Good retention. The nose is intensely fruity, mildly acidic and lightly herbal with a modest facet of white oak. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is fruity, tannic and deliciously sour. Tart, fruity, bready finale. Thanks goes out to 50belair for coming through with this world class brew!

Bottle thanks to Bruce. Pours a cloudy pink with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong berry, brett, funk. Thin mouth, tart berry, funk, oak tannin, very nice.
