Aged for eighteen months in fresh Cabernet Sauvignon wine barrels, Dihos Dactylion features a primary fermentation using a proprietary blend of saison yeasts, a secondary fermentation of our house brettanomyces wild yeast strain, along with lactobacillus and pediococcus bacteria added to sour things up. Dihos Dactylion bursts with aggressive aromas of red wine and a touch of brett; delightfully sour to the taste, initial lactic acid flavors hit high in the cheekbones before transitioning to complex layers of soft fruit, oaky-tannins and red wine.

wedgie9 (2638) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Tasted on 11/16/13 from a capped 12oz bottle at our Avery Barrel-Aged tasting. Pours clear bright orange with a thin off-white head that leaves a thin collar. The nose is sour and very vinous, white wine vinegar, and faint oak. The flavor is very balanced, with the vinous fruit balancing the very sour white wine vinegar, along with just a touch of oak. The body is full with average but stinging carbonation and a long sour and very vinous finish. Almost like drinking a wine made from very under ripe Cabernet.

Bottle split at Mother Kelly’s during RBESG ’14, day 2, 08/08/14 - a massive win from the Kernel Rot Box! Murky orange amber with a moderate off white head that dissipates to edgeing. Nose carries a great lactic soured fruit burst to it, earthy, pumpkin seeds, tarte peach, woody vibes. Taste comprises vinous notes, oaky, bottom of the tin left for a week pineapple chunks, light acidity, mellow dank fruity overtures, tarte peach, tannins. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, lightly warming alcohol in the close. Winner!

Sampled from bottle. Unclear reddish color, small beige head. Aroma is sour, r fruits, green apple. Taste sour, sour green apple, sour red berries, sour fruits. Looks like a lot of sour which it has, but also some fruitiness. Quite nice imo.
