2017 The Rare Barrel "Across the Sea" Golden Sour Beer Aged in Oak Barrels w/ Coriander & Sea Salt, California (750ml)

SKU #1309104

Tasting Notes - lightly tart with moderate saison yeast expression subtle bready character, with undercurrents of citrus and a touch of brine. One of our most balanced beers in acidity and yeast expression… don't let the coriander and sea salt scare ya on this one! Fermentation - This blend consists of multiple batches of saison and sour beer. The majority of these batches were fermented with Saccharomyces yeast in primary and later inoculated with various Brettanomyces strains. A portion of these non-sour barrels developed some acidity after aging in oak barrels for over 6-9 months. This mildly tart portion was then blended with a batch of sour barrels that were fermented with DuPont saison yeast in primary and then racked into unrinsed barrels that previously housed Brettanomyces bruxellensis var. Drei and Pediococcus damnosus. (Prodcuer Notes)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
