COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pinot Barrel Four was our second batch. We took the recipe for the Four and sent the beer into some oak barrels graciously donated by La Bete winery of McMinnville, topping them up with a small amount of Oregon cherry puree along with lactobacillus and brettanomyces claussenii to encourage more acidity and aromatic complexity in the finished beer. Half of the batch was blended and kegged and can be found at a few specialty bars while the remaining half is still maturing in the barrels and will likely be bottled at some point towards the end of 2009.

Bamsen78 (2413) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle @ Scooper Tasting in Ulfborg. Pours murky pinkish orange amber with small white head. Clear aroma of flowers and yeast with fruity and vinous notes. Sour, vinous flavour, with notes of flowers and hops. Lingering, sour aftertaste. Disturbing. Could be better, perhaps?

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. It pours an unclear, orange colored body and a small, dense, off-white head. It’s quite funky on the nose, with fruityness, and a malty hint. Vinous and with some berries. The flavor is fruity and funky, with some berries and orangepeel. Full-bodied, dry and with a pleasant level of carbonation. Lasting yeasty and berryish finish. Quite pleasant and tasteful this one, but nothing special. 131122

Bottle thanks to somebody, rating from my backlog. The smell is tart, fruits, sour, and ok. The look is cloudy, has a thin white head, and yellow in color. The taste is a light tartness, fruits, slight sourness, and light fruits.

Called "Cherry Four", so I hope I am rating the correct beer. Pink, Pink head. Smells tart, like cherries, then a nice balsamic vinegar note. Really good stuff - cherry, red wine, balsamic vinegar, and bunch a funky flavors.
