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.

Pours a nice deep ruby red. Head disappears quickly. Has a lot of horseblanket in the smell, their is oak, berries, yeast, some lemon. Nice inviting smell, complex and not harsh at all. Taste is of sweet and sour berries (nicely balanced). Oak and some acidy. Mouthfell is medium/light body, nice touch of sourness, with plenty of carbonation but its not too high. Overall, what an impressive sour. Lots of fruit and plenty of sourness. No odd flavors whatsoever.
