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.

JBPortland (774) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 25, 2014
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.

tectactoe (1850) - Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle: Hazy golden color with a foamy beige head that lasts surprisingly long compared to the rest of these beers. Extremely musty aroma, huge baked bread & clumpy yeast profile, with notes of herbal & ashy florals, incense, & medicinal tea leaves. Too much yeastiness, Brett gone wrong. Taste is extremely woody, tannic, & bready. Like straight up sucking on a stave, fresh inoculated with brettanomyces. Boozy, nearly harsh vinous notes with strange notes of wood, metal, & raw dough in the finish. Sharp, astringent body. Is this a fucking joke? Almanac just Punk’d everyone. Put out a line-up of extremely solid sour ales & then toss this abomination in the mix. Just cruel.

Inbreak (2119) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2014
31.08.2014, 0,375l bottle @ home:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral, yeast, hay, dough, grass, alcohol, pineapple, leafs, coconut, citrus peel. Taste is slightly harsh boozy, citrus peel, alcohol, yeast, oak, harsh hops, old leafs, minerals, bark, grass. Longlasting bitterness, dry harsh mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea.

joeneugs (3240) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 28, 2014
On tap at the Beer Baron. It pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head. The aroma is bready and bretty with mild stone fruit. The flavor is the same with big hop influence and bitterness. Brett phenolics and bitter grapefruit, pine, and tropical fruit. Almost no sourness. Bready backbone with a full creamy body. So not what I expected, but nice nonetheless.

My Rating 13.800. Bottle @ Champions League Kvalifikation, Aab - Apoel. Pours hazy golden with a creamy white head. Nose is funk and citrus. Barnyard, lemon, hay and citrus peel. Vinous and smooth. Dry and bitter. Quite spacey with alot of flavors going on but good quality!
