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.

Bottle. Pours raspberry with off white drops of head. Nose/taste of tart pink grapefruit, lightly tart cherry, vinous notes, oak and wild yeast. Finishes sweet tart. Extremely well balanced, not overpowering in its tartness. Medium body.

Bottle shared by the Bastardos at Muckfest II on 6/25/11. Pours clear amber with a thin off-white head. Tart fruit aroma with less of a peppery yeast note and more fruit. Tart fruit flavor with a bit of sweet fruit in there as well before a nice crisp sour finish. Very good.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike. The beer is hazy and bright orange with a quarter inch of thick, white head. The aroma offers cherries, yeast, light funk. Smells awesome. Great flavor as well. Cherries shine through. This beer challenges my will. It’s hard not to gulp this. Simply fantastic. Masterful. Would love to have more of this. Highly recommended.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2013 Really great tannic quality to this beer, moderate tartness iin the incredibly dry finish. Well-balanced, good fruity flavors, slight hop bitterness, and funk more prevalent in the nose than the mouth. A great beer that I want, nay need, more of.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2012 Bottle with Doodler and Co. Thanks everyone! Mildly hazy, ruby orange appearance with a white head. Really nice, oaky, mild tart cherry, almost pie-like aroma. Very tart cherry, quite tangy, dry, vinous flavor. Awesome!
