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

Prufrockstar (957) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle, shared by Greg (thanks!). Ananke and Raspberry ananke tasted side-by-side. From rough notes.

Ananke - pours gold, hazy; light body, soft carb; sour, musty, cereal grains. Nod goes to raspberry here, but definitely nice.

Raspberry - pours an attractive red-pink; huge fruity raspberry nose, smells like candy (cotton candy meets jolly rancher). Some cherry as well. Very nice.

GABF 2013. Cloudy, light-yellow straw color. Nice funky nose, some white wine on the nose. Crisp, clean, and refreshing sour if not all that complex with nice tartness.

Jesterdeal (1887) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2013
2010 bottle traded by JtClockwork. Aroma is tart noble rot , vinegar, and wheat. Pours hazy blonde and super flat. Taste is ok with sour white grapes, funky wheat, and slight champagne. Mouthfeel is tame with very little bite and deifinitely no carb. Overall, a pleasant taste with a dissappointing presence. Word has it that future years were better.

Bottle (22 oz). Shared by Seth and the Texas crew, thanks! Hazy straw color with a little white head and almost no lacing. Aroma of chardonnay, grapes, oak, tart notes and fruity notes. Taste is slightly sweet and moderately sour with chardonnay, fruits, oak, grapes, lemon and some grassy notes. Medium body. Moderate to good carbonation. Mouthfeel is dry and winey. It not stands with the best of the style, but its an honest Sour Ale that is well executed and enjoyable.
