COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Wild Ale.
Rarely released in its purest form, Ananke is the backbone of our wild ale program, a base beer used for blending and fruit infusion. Named for the ancient Greek Goddess of inevitability and personification of destiny, necessity & fate, Ananke helps bring order to an otherwise chaotic universe. Such as her namesake, this delicately sour ale’s presence is felt throughout all of our barrel-aged beers. Ingredients: Pilsen & acidulated malts; raw wheat; flaked rye; Perle hops; top-fermenting yeast; wild yeast & bacteria; natural, limestone-filtered, Edwards Aquifer H2O; love

tectactoe (2343) - Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy, pale straw-yellow body with a foamy, slightly soapy white head that reduces to a bubbly collar in no-time. Aroma of sweaty funk, brettanomyces, sour lemon, mild acetic acid, lightly vinous white grapes, stone fruit skin sharpness, musty hay, & some sweaty feet. Sour, funky. Flavor has a lovely sweet-tart & lemony sourness up front; lacto yeast, brett, horsey funk, underripe stone fruits, white grapes. Some dripping wet oak towards the back-end; finishing with a strong, nearly puckering sourness & a lingering bit of lemons, barnyard, & sweaty hay. Smooth, crisp mouth feel. Wow! What an awesome sour ale.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate citrus, brett, sweet tarts, light lemon, and a touch of vinous notes. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze and a small white head that quickly fades to a minimal film. The flavor starts with moderate tart citrus. The finish has moderate tart lemon, light sweet tarts, brett, and very faint white. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, super tasty and something I could drink all day.

Light sweet flavor with bracing tart lemons, white pepper, cereal, pale wood. Light bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Strongly acidic on the finish with cleansing lemon, soft funky edges, light bitter straw. Bracing and a bit burning with the high acidity. A bit rough around the edges and perhaps a touch young. Fair overall.

Bottle shared by Dreadnaught33. Thanks Jonathan! This is my second time enjoying this beer. The beer is a hazy, golden straw hue with a small ring of pure white head. The aroma brings funk, lemon, white wine, hay, sweet tarts. Sour with some tangy citrus notes. A touch of oak with some nice brett presence. Light to medium in body with a puckering finish. Pretty tasty.
