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

Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle shared during the satellite Travlr 10K tasting at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Pours unclear yellow-gold with a foamy white head. The aroma holds rich lemon, light funk, popcorn, sweat. 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.

bhensonb (11382) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Cool bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours hazy gold with a frothy white head. Nice sour, pehaps even barnyard, aroma. Medium body with sharpish carbonation. Flavor? I call barnyard. And citrus? And a familiar flavor I can’t name. It’s lightly astringent, and seems to have oak character. Wine? Maybe that’s the familiar flavor? A BA sour that’s not apparently the same as any others I can recall. Nice.

brokensail (11293) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 23, 2011
A: The pour is a clear golden straw color with a thin ring of white foam. S: Pretty decent tartness to the nose to go with a nice little funky character. There’s still some malt character to it, but also what seems to be some white grapes. I get somewhat of a lemon-lime soda smell and a lot of CO2. T: There’s a quick bit of lactic acidity on the front end. Seems to be some white grapes, lemon, and green apples. The malt/bread flavor is there also. Pretty simple on the flavor, but it is nice. M: The body is medium with a moderate to high carbonation. D: A pretty decent sour, especially for a first attempt from Freetail. I would be interested to see how this beer ends up aging.
