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. Appreciation’s 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!

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.

ctipping (2111) - Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2016
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, it’s a good beer, but didn’t blow me away.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2016 Hazy almost murky reddish violet color. Fruit jam, funk, raspberry, boysenberry, and lemon. Sweet and lightly tart. Lightly carbed, light bodied, and a light fruity finish.

(750ml poured from the bottom of the bottle) pure milkshake pour that’s 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.

McWorta (1627) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 2, 2016
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.

RasmusOtt (2792) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2016
Tap @ CBC 16. Pours red with a pink head. Aroma of boys berries, lactic tartness, sweet pie berries, slight vinous notes and some funk. The taste is juicy with lots of red berries and vinous notes. Also some funk and a decent acidity. Awesome sour ale!

Thank to Michael for this awesome brew! Santé! Liquide rouge dont la robe rouge claire et mi voilée, me rappelle un vin jeune de la région du Beuajolais. Pellicule fongique en surface. Mes yeux salivent! Un nez où le funk et le baril de vin rouge se disputent le premier rôle. Une quantité importante de fruits m’envahit les narines et il m’est difficile d’identifier l’origine de ces fruits rouges et gorgés de jus. Viennent-ils des baies elles-même ou du raisin ayant libéré son moût dans une riche barrique, résultant en des saveurs aussi complexes que fruitées? Je suis sous le charme et je n’ai pas envie d’obtenir de réponse à cette question aussi philosophique qu’inutile. Je vis un moment sensoriel intense que je ne veux pas rationaliser mais simplement partager innocemment en compagnie de mon ami. Attaque fruitée, vineuse, chaleureuse, mi acide et pleinement complexe en bouche. Un funk de vieux baril de fond de cale. La baie est sûrette, le vin chaud, le funk me monte aux joues. Un splendide coup de coeur!
