COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Tap @ the Avery Anny fest. Pours a lightly hazed reddish orange with a small off white head. Nose holds tart red wine grapes, dry oak and some Brett funk. Palate is medium tart and quite vinous.

36cl, recently retired exclusive American brew, with Brettanomyces, thx alot to Jacob for bringing this over!, very complex sour brew, vinous/woody/fruity and slightly alcoholic, not too heavy, balanced, clear, nearly no head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

bottle. hazed almost purple body with a lasting small bubble head. yep, this is gonna have some pucker factor to it. sour cherry is my 1st thought, some banana in the finish. like a tart grape with strawberry. man, almost feel it in the cheekbones then it fades. banana really gets stronger as this warms. sour cherry banana juice in a good way. a bit too sweet, but i like it.

Bottle shared by Brad @ Armin’s - thanks! Dark amber pour, clear with almost no head. Slightly sour nose. Sour taste - strongly acetic. Maybe this is lactic and oak? Just ok.

Bottle, shamefully forgot who sent it to me :(. Pours hazy red amber with TONS of floaties, small beige head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is tart cherry, oak, vanilla, funk, perhaps a touch of turpentine. Flavor is the same, fruity and woody, vinous almost bourbon-like barrel notes. Initially sweet, then dries out quickly to a very dry finish. Only lightly tart, with just a tiny bit of funk present and light astringence. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. ABV is quite well hidden. For me all sours of this class are held up to RR Supplication, and this one stands up quite well. Kudos to Avery!
