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.

yngwie (13575) - 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
