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

tom10101 (2917) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2013
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.

alexsdad06 (5552) - Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle from tasting. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is tart, citrus, wood, wheat, with light spicy and funky notes. The flavor has decent citrus with some tart character, wheat, light spices, mild funk. This is not a big sour, actually more wild and very easy to drink.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear bright golden color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention but minimal lacing. Aroma consists of sour and tart notes with some light oak also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by tart notes with some sour notes and oak also perceptible and well balanced acidity which is not overly dominant. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nothing spectacular about his beer but well brewed overall with good balance and limited acidity.

jcartamdg (2022) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Pours a hazy orange gold with no head. Aroma of funk, oak vinegar and citrus. Taste is funky and sour with oak up front but finishes fruity citrus and peaches. Very nice, better than the raspberry variant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brystmar (1276) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Citric, grassy on the palate with plenty more lemon zest in the nose. Tangy, tart, delicious, imminently sessionable. More lactic than most of its American sour brethren. Great base for the fruited versions, and Ananke itself should age nicely.

crossovert (7561) - Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Not as good as the raspberry but def a nice acidic brew with hints of the wine barrel.
