COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with a mash of raw and malted barley, oats, rye, spelt and lemon, this beer was fermented in used wine barrels with a blend of Brettanomyces wild yeasts and Marla Bakery’s San Francisco sourdough yeast. The finished beer is dry-hopped with tropical Mosaic hops. This unfiltered ale is alive in the bottle: drink fresh for a bright, passionfruit aroma or age to develop the wild yeast funk.

375ml bottle pours cloudy toasted orange with 2 finger head. Nose is musty funky lemon, lime, grape. Taste is tart lemon, lime rind, some tropical fruit, dusty dough, faint woody funk. Finish is mildly tart, though not as tart as expected for a sour beer brewed with lemons, funky fruit, lime, light bready cereal, some faint oak. A very layered brew. Interesting in concept and taste.

Bottle... Pours clear and yellow with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. The aroma is woody and bready with hints of lemon zest and lactic acid. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor offers some acidity and fruitiness, but mainly I’m getting acute, metallic bitterness that clings forever to my unhappy tongue. Bottle courtesy of richiesd!

Tried on 12/10/15 - had a sour lemon aroma, but the taste was off. It wasn't sour...i think it went bad. I could handle more than two drinks. This is surprising given the ratings and the fact that I like their other beers. I'm simply making a note so I can try another one later. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange color with white head. Aroma is fresh, vanilla, biscuity, oranges, citrusy. Taste is surprisingly bready, really sour dough like, slightly boozy. Daring, and it pays off.

drowland (7384) - Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2015
4/3/15. Bottle shared by Tim, I believe. Hazy yellow pour with a nice khaki head, good lacing. Interesting aroma, light funk, lemon peel, super doughy maltiness, reminds of raw pizza dough in a way. The flavor is the same way - lemon, light funk, some grassy bitterness, very doughy. Almost reminds me of a lemon pie with undercooked crust (and less sweetness of course). Interesting.
