COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pinot Barrel Four was our second batch. We took the recipe for the Four and sent the beer into some oak barrels graciously donated by La Bete winery of McMinnville, topping them up with a small amount of Oregon cherry puree along with lactobacillus and brettanomyces claussenii to encourage more acidity and aromatic complexity in the finished beer. Half of the batch was blended and kegged and can be found at a few specialty bars while the remaining half is still maturing in the barrels and will likely be bottled at some point towards the end of 2009.

Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Tap at brewery. Pours hazy orange with minimal white head. Aroma is lacto, vinegar, cherries, cough syrup, sweet fruit. Taste is light sour throughout, crisp, medium carbonation, hint of cherry on the back. Overall, really nice, just a bit flat.

5 oz sample at the brewery in Portland, Oregon. The pour is a hazed golden yellow with minimal white head. The aroma is bright cherry sour, citrus tartness and some wheat grain in back. The taste is a great melding of the sour cherry and the tart acidic citrus, along with some wood and funk Brett that carries the finish. The palate is light bodied with fine active carbonation and the dry Brett funky tart finish. Fun beer.

CraftBeerNick (2565) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Keg at Hoppy Loft, 12th May 15. Probably unfair to rate this after 4 Cantillons. It’s nice some yeast and funk and sourness. OK, nothing exciting for me
