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!

Aroma of raspberry, wood, vanilla, oak, blackberry and currant juice. Taste of currants, "fake cherry", raspberry. a bit letdown from the aroma. Pretty good and nice, but a bit straight forward.

stevoj (4438) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 16, 2016
750ml bottle thanks to Steve. Following the Paxton with another stellar beer. Violet hued body and a soft pink head. Big berry aroma, some dry wooden notes and just enough sour elements. Taste follows the same pattern, sour and dry, some earthy barrel tones, all wrapped up in the berries. Nice.

750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 7/2/2014. Light purple body. Small white head. Thin collar and some wisps on the surface. Smells lightly fruity and lightly acidic. Mildly oaky. Not a really intense aroma. Decent berry flavor. A little musty. Oaky and pleasantly sour. Well carbonated. Medium light body. Well, its a good beer, but didnt blow me away.

thirdeye11 (6131) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2016
(750ml poured from the bottom of the bottle) pure milkshake pour thats dark purple and no head. Nose of rich berry, funky lacto, barrel, medium tartness. Taste is pure berries, thick and milkshakey, pulpy, berry seeds, touch of lacto but mostly tart from the fruit, linger is odd because of the tart berry. Just seems like juice and nectar.

Deep red, light pink head. Aromas of barnyard, wheat, funk, berry develop. Bit lively, moderate slickness with medium body. Bit fruity sweet building a pronounced bitter-sourness which is not too overpowering, just about limit. Tart lasting finish.
