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!

McWorta (1516) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 2, 2016
Deep red, light pink head. Aromas of barnyard, wheat, funk, berry develop. Bit lively, moderate slickness with medium body. Bit fruity sweet building a pronounced bitter-sourness which is not too overpowering, just about limit. Tart lasting finish.

Thank to Michael for this awesome brew! Santé! Liquide rouge dont la robe rouge claire et mi voilée, me rappelle un vin jeune de la région du Beuajolais. Pellicule fongique en surface. Mes yeux salivent! Un nez où le funk et le baril de vin rouge se disputent le premier rôle. Une quantité importante de fruits m’envahit les narines et il m’est difficile d’identifier l’origine de ces fruits rouges et gorgés de jus. Viennent-ils des baies elles-même ou du raisin ayant libéré son moût dans une riche barrique, résultant en des saveurs aussi complexes que fruitées? Je suis sous le charme et je n’ai pas envie d’obtenir de réponse à cette question aussi philosophique qu’inutile. Je vis un moment sensoriel intense que je ne veux pas rationaliser mais simplement partager innocemment en compagnie de mon ami. Attaque fruitée, vineuse, chaleureuse, mi acide et pleinement complexe en bouche. Un funk de vieux baril de fond de cale. La baie est sûrette, le vin chaud, le funk me monte aux joues. Un splendide coup de coeur!
