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. We present to you this batch, with raspberries added in the secondary tank. Stin ijiasas! Ingredients: Pilsen & acidulated malts; raw wheat; flaked rye; Perle hops; top-fermenting yeast; wild yeast & bacteria; natural, limestone-filtered, Edwards Aquifer H2O; raspberries; love

Reddish pour, pink head. Loads of tart berries, yogurt, light lemony notes, some really welcomed oak flavors. This was quite enjoyable.

hopscotch (9891) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Bottle... darkguardian’s & biggsbowler’s West Palm Beach Birthday Bash!... This beer rocks!... Hazy dirty-orange pour with a miniscule, fleeting, creamy, white head. The aromatics are fruity and sour - raspberries and other red, acidic berries and fruits. Light to medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor furnishes big notes of sour raspberries, blackberries and red currants. Finishes fruity, stupid tart and then it dries out. World class beer provided by a world class guy, 50belair!

3fourths (8377) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2013
bottle. lightly hazed brick red body with a shallow film of a white head and no lasting retention. medium to heavy oak with strong acetobacter and lactic acid aroma and flavor; mild to medium dryness and tart raspberry pulp flavoring with a strongly salivating acidity and a vitamin-like, chalky yeast residue left in the finish. overall it’s pretty well rounded, very quenching and satisfying washing of the tongue with the acid. nicely done. thanks Alan.

j12601 (7350) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle at jtclockwork’s place for a tasting. Pours a hazed ruby garnet with a thin white head. Big fat raspberries and soft acidic funk on the nose. Medium bodied, lots of musky raspberries, tart acid and subtle sweetness. Amazingly balanced, soft raspberry, long gentle acid. Lovely.

arminjewell (7270) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Pour out of bottle, slightly hazy reddish pour with thin pinkish head, aroma brought juicy raspberries with the seeds, slight lemon, oak, hints of vanilla, biscuit in there to balance, slight funky notes as well. Taste had a mix of sweet raspberry, jam, and seeds into some slight oak, vinegar, hints of lemon, lactic as well, slight oak, finishing fairly tart, slightly sweet. Tasty.

Bomber. Poured a striking shade of light reddish-amber with a short, pink-tinted beige head. The aroma picked up fresh raspberry seeds and meat paired with vinegar, sour oak, and a bit of fruity Brett.. smelled like it was going to be very sour.. very nice. The flavor opened sour with raspberry-infused vinegar and oak.. more meaty berries, assorted light fruit skins (and sour raspberry seeds), and a bit of sour wheat on the middle.. finished very sour with raspberry seeds, vinegar, and complementary funk. Medium-bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. much more sour than anticipated.. got caught up in a few places, but overall a very good brew!
