COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Appreciations 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!

neongolden (1385) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2017
(Sample @ CBC 2016 Green Session, Copenhagen) Pours murky medium red with a pale pink head. Aroma is reddish berries, somewhat tart and raspberry-like, ample barnyard funk, a bit oaky and vinous, lactic acidity, jam. Flavour is quite tart, red berries/raspberry with something a little deeper like red grape, zippy lemon lacto, dusty funk, wood, a bit tannic, a little sweet hint of malt. Dry cleansing tart berry finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Quite nice, not my absolute favourite SARA, which is a high bar, but very drinkable.
