COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 aleís 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

On draft for GABF 2012. Pours a hazy pink-yellow with a white head. Nose is tart raspberries, some oak, light funk, and some vinous tartness. Flavor is similar with a burst of berries in a house of vinegar, sour, tart fruit, vinous qualities, and bits of oak. Light to medium in body and a nice sour overall.

This one poured a nice red color, with a white head. Aroma was of red wine, raspberries, graina nd light metallic notes. Flavor was medium tart raspberries, light tannins, grain and some off seedy flavor.

2012 Bottle, bomber. split 2 ways at fridge temp and allowed to warm. red-pinkesh hues. Nose is bright fruit, minor fecal matter, a hint of tang soda and broken dreams. Taste is nice. very dry, semi-sweet finish. not a huge burst of raspberry but this is quite old now. hint of balsamic, great mouthfeel. has a nice backbone with spice.

3fourths (7855) - 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 itís pretty well rounded, very quenching and satisfying washing of the tongue with the acid. nicely done. thanks Alan.

Bottle share at Hunahpuís Day. I thought I had had this at the brewery before, but maybe not. Tart but not overly sour. Raspberry isnít overpowering.
