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.

Bright red hue, full of wild berry, raspberry, red licorice and red cherry flavors, lightly carbonated mouthfeel that isn’t overly tart, showing floral undertones of dried rose. Adds and element of acidic passion fruit through the finish. Layered and complex almost showing a vinous quality. A bit of sour fruit lingers.
