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 Bakeryís 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 (654) - 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.

umich03jm (1815) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle thanks to my local group for sharing. Pours a cloudy light yellow color with a small fizzy ring of head. Smells like pancake mix, tropical fruit and brett. Pretty cool. Taste, however, is not cool. Itís barely drinkable actually. Pancake batter, bitter fruit peels, rye, and just some weird funkiness that I canít describe.

Bottle: The aroma consists of tropical fruits, grapefruit, orange peel, floral notes, and pine. It pours a hazy/cloudy golden-orange with a small white head that fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus. The finish is grapefruit, wood, orange peel, and a touch of florals. Itís light bodied with moderate carbonation and a soft mouthfeel.
