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

Thanks to the guy who always comes through for a taste of this one. I owe you yet again, Eric! Served at the Jackie O’s One Funky Afternoon release in my SAVOR snifter. Pours a light apricot-peach color with a bit of haze and a white head. Light lacing. The nose is really nice and light. Mild tartness with a bit of peach. Some acidity lingering in the background. Lactic character is mild in the nose but comes out more in the flavor, which is almost like an American-inspired berliner. Light peach and other stone fruits along with a hint of wheat. Light, crisp, and refreshing body that is slightly acidic. Overall, quite enjoyable. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-13-2011

12oz bottle provided by Kan...Pours a light gold peach with a light white head, ok spotty lacing, poor retention...Aroma that is very wine like, dry, apple, grape skin, and yeast, not very sour...The taste and feel are also dry and wine like but sour. I’m not a huge fan of the taste or carbonation level. Either needs to be more or less wine like.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2011 Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of bu11zeye. Pours yellow with a slight haze and a tiny white head. Sweet and tart fruity aroma. Medium body, yeasty with some medicinal notes and a sophisticated Chardonnay-like tartness. Strange cardamom notes. Baking yeast. Interesting, but clearly an "inexperienced " Sour. 150311

Big thanks to ericandersnavy for the share. Pours a light straw yellow with a white head. Nose is lemon, citrus, yeast, slight vinous quality, hints of brett: pineapple?, and some tartness. Flavor is very light and pleasant: citrus, lemon, pinot, some bugs, a hint of pineapple brett, a not too heavy on carbonation. Very enjoyable sour- I drink a das boot of it.
