COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first foray into the funky world of lambic style beers. These traditional Belgian style ales are exposed to both wild yeast and bacteria, as well as the addition of fruit, during the secondary fermentation. Ours began back in 2010, with the blend of two wheat ales and inoculated with Brettanomyces Lambicus, Brettanomyces Bruxellensis and lactobacillus. We then added ollalieberries—no, that’s not a typo—and waited patiently for two years! The result is amazing: a distinctively, dry, cidery, fruity, vinuous and oh-so sour beer. Bracing and refreshing.

Poured a reddish amber color with aroams of wet wood, berries, sourness and some light vinegar. Flavors are the same nice sour fruit, and lit wet wood, with some funk, these guys do it again, always making me want more when I finish the bottle.

Draught@CBC2015. Red colour with a small pinkish head. Aroma is red berries, some funk, wood and quite sour with some grapes as well. Flavour is rather similar, but also has some mild white wine/vinegary notes to it. Suits the sourness of the beer really well. Fresh and funky.
