COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian wheat beer aged in white wine barrels and allowed to become very slightly sour. This is a wonderful session beer for those of the “sour and funky” persuasion.

DYCSoccer17 (3290) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 4, 2010
16 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Graduate. Wow...either the lines are dirty, or there is a lot of intentional Brett in this beer. Somehwat lemony aroma with funky barnyard Bretty notes are present. Transparent golden body with a small white head present. Funky, Bretty slightly tart/sour start, which then has some lemony wheat malt chewiness in the middle. Finishes with more Brett tartness. Super funky. Not sure how much I like this, though. Definitely was not expecting this out of this beer (I had no description)

Sampled today at the brewhouse. Supposedly this is a barrel of wheat beer that was forgotten and found by a horse in their barn. It is a wheat beer that has been aged way too long. It is really sweet but has good wheat complexities. Good brew, worth a try but probably wont be around long.
