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

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2011
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.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Hazy yellow ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet is both funky and fruity – old cheese intermingled with whispers of vanilla, lemon zest and white grapes. Medium-bodied and oily with mild carbonation. The flavor is sour and fruity with light yeasty bitterness and a hint of butter. Tart, tangy, mildly bitter finish. Kudos to 50belair for sharing his bottle of this gem!

darkguardian (725) - Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle courtesy of 50Belair. Pours a goldenrod yellow, clear with little head. Nose is white grapes, sour funk. Rather nice. Bracingly sour but not overly so with a light effervescent body. Somewhat like Cascade The Vine. Lot of barrel flavor. This is a terrific sour.
