COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This barrel-aged ale is a celebration of the California autumn harvest. Brewed with heirloom pumpkins from La Tercera Farms in Bodega Bay, crisp Fuyu persimmons from Hamada Farms in the San Joaquin Valley and fresh ginger from the Santa Clara Valley, then aged for over a year in white wine barrels to create a deliciously complex wild ale. Enjoy with delicate white fish and roasted squash.

Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing! A almost clear deep golden beer with a small most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of tart grapes, wood, sour fruits, white wine. Taste of intense sour grapes, wood, orange fruits, some vinegar, nice!

Fantastic woody fresh nose. The beer starts smooth and mild. Nice smooth sourish with woody hints. Refreshing and deep. The winey sourness is very round, smooth and refreshing with a nice fruity mild aftertaste. The ginger is there in hints, the other fruits might be there, but I can't taste them exactly. Very nice fruity bouquet, fresh and mild. Great stuff!

Pours hazy peach with a low frothy white head. Aromas of citrus, green apples, pumpkin, floral notes, sour notes. Taste is fruity and quite sour with oak notes. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation and very dry.

Bottle. Bit thanks to Andrew for sharing one of his personal whales with the crew. Stringy finish to an initially tall head. Bright hazy peach color. Light tart, spicy. Cool veggie, spicy earthy body. Really delicious. Nice spiced sour, the ginger works. I really dig it.

(Backlog) Bottle pour at a bottle share, huge thanks to Andrew for sharing this one, ever since the almanac quest started this has been one of your most desirable. 1 down 3 more to go. Light golden pour, nice sour aroma, thin head, mild carb, this beer has held up very well. Some peach flavor for me. Balanced sournes throughout.

375 ml bottle poured. The first of a series that I have looked for more than any other series in the world. Peach orange pour with a patchy fizz head. Orange fruit, peach, apricot, and dominant sour aroma. Sour up front. Watermelon, orange, melon. Up to expectation for sure, and worth the wait. Sourness 7/10. Excellent.

Pale golden color with a frothy off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Indistinct sweetness, some citrus on the nose. Persimmon, ginger, citrus that flows into a wave of sourness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Really nice beer but seems to be losing some of the fruit notes.

375mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head. Nose is very complex, with notes of oak barrels, light ginger and some persimmons -- very wild and complex. Flavour is an usual blend of notes -- including the persimmon, pumpkin and ginger, followed by oaky white wine notes. Very complex, cohesive and drinkable. Medium-high carbonation is appropriate here. Excellent.
