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!

thirdeye11 (6152) - 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.

Thank to Michael for this awesome brew! Sant! Liquide rouge dont la robe rouge claire et mi voile, me rappelle un vin jeune de la rgion du Beuajolais. Pellicule fongique en surface. Mes yeux salivent! Un nez o le funk et le baril de vin rouge se disputent le premier rle. Une quantit importante de fruits menvahit les narines et il mest difficile didentifier lorigine de ces fruits rouges et gorgs de jus. Viennent-ils des baies elles-mme ou du raisin ayant libr son mot dans une riche barrique, rsultant en des saveurs aussi complexes que fruites? Je suis sous le charme et je nai pas envie dobtenir de rponse cette question aussi philosophique quinutile. Je vis un moment sensoriel intense que je ne veux pas rationaliser mais simplement partager innocemment en compagnie de mon ami. Attaque fruite, vineuse, chaleureuse, mi acide et pleinement complexe en bouche. Un funk de vieux baril de fond de cale. La baie est srette, le vin chaud, le funk me monte aux joues. Un splendide coup de coeur!
