COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale Aged In Wine Barrels With Strawberries and Nectarines When summer comes to California’s Farmer’s Markets, the stands explode with mountains of mouth watering stone fruit and plump strawberries. Aged in used wine barrels for a year, this refreshing & tart wild ale was made with sweet coastal strawberries from Swanton Berry Farms and high-summer crimson baby nectarines from Blossom Bluff Farms. Here’s to our California summer harvest!

Smell of old oak matches with tart fruity aromas. Flavor of a very fruity Sauvignon blanc and oak ending. All the mild fruits finish rounding this out.

Wonderful sour, strawberries dominate nose. Sparkling cider like with peach like after tones. Light fruits through out entire flavors. Some funk and mild Brett. Very thirst quenching with really tart finish.

Off the hook, pure sour strawberry liquid bliss, i hope they make this again. Really knockout beer. Pink body and head, tons of alpine strawberry notes and flavors plus some slight green and earth to balance ot.

I love great experimental sours. Great tart strawberry taste, the nectarines are warm and fuzzy tart as well. The finish is very refreshing, and delicious.

Incredible! Pours a slightly hazed gold. Aroma of ripe stone fruit, strawberries, hay, light funk, lactic sourness. Flavor is simply stunning. Peaches, nectarines, strawberries, light plums, lactic sourness, lively carbonation but soft on the tongue. Wow.

Bottle thanks to my man, raiders707! Pours Hazy yellow, like a thick unfiltered wheat beer. Thick white head that does not seem to disappear. Nose is funky, Brett, some tropical fruit, pineapple, sour green apple. Taste is of sour, strawberries, grape juice, and tropical fruit. This has got to be my new favorite beer! Just fantastic!

From the bottle, hazy yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma is tart and lemon. Flavor is tasty tart, and some acidic, but so damn tasty!

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2013 Bottle. Courtesy of James Daddy. Pours opaque raw honey with a fat fluffy white head. Aroma of strawberry jam, raspberry, and lactic sour acid. Musty and dank. Flavor is strawberry jam with light lemon zest and lactic dryness. Incredibly dry in the finish, but so much strawberry essence and juicy sweetness initially. Astonishingly good beer. Reminds me of a smoother, lighter Allagash Avance. Home run. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours milky orange with a white head that sticks around leaving plenty of lacing. Aroma is bright citrus, with some strawberries. Flavor is sharply sour with huge citrus notes, and a incredible sweet strawberry finish. Absolutely delicious. I wish I had more of this!
