The Rare Barrel - Home, Sour Home Review

Brewery: The Rare Barrel
Location: Berkeley, CA
Beer: Home, Sour Home
Style: American Wild Ale
Serving: Tulip Glass (10 oz.) 
ABV: 5.8%
Sourness: 5/10

A (3/3) Sparse and diminishing head with a hazy to cloudy clarity of this clear golden beer.

S (10/12): Very pleasant peach and cinnamon aroma with a light vanilla note dance in your nostrils begging you to take a sip.

T (18/20): Fantastic, the peach and cinnamon are both so well balanced.  Neither flavor is dominant but both are very noticeable.  The vanilla aroma that was in the aromas background transfers to the palate in a similar supporting role.

M (4/5): A medium mouthfeel with a flat level of carbonation and a clean tart finish.

O (9/10): GREAT Sour beer! The cinnamon flavor with the peach counterweight is a flavor combination that I never would have thought compliment each other so well.
