From the Almanac Beer Company website: “This beer is inspired by the long and hot summer days in the San Joaquin Valley—the fertile basin that yields much of California’s bountiful produce. This tart blond ale was brewed with Rainier and Bing cherries from Bella Viva Orchards and fermented with our house sour culture and aged for many months in used wine barrels to create a tart, cherry-kissed wild ale.”

Taste: Tart and sour upfront with lemon and cherries, funky oak barrel, straw, light vinegar and wet grainy malts.
