Chandelle Just as a pilot perfectly balances the climb and turn of his aircraft when performing the Chandelle, this oak-aged sour ale represents the perfect balance of fruit and funk. To create Chandelle, we filled oak barrels with Polycot (our Local Fields Series wheat beer brewed with locally grown apricots) and then added fresh apricots, brettanomyces yeasts and souring bacteria. Additional apricots were added to the barrels during the twelve month aging process. The result is a bright golden liquid with a fulsome apricot aroma. This beer delivers a zesty tang to the palate, balancing the fresh flavors of the fruit with a pleasantly sour taste created by the wild yeast and bacteria. Chandelle will age nicely for up to a year. Additional Information: Chandelle: Consists of a maximum climb, maximum bank combination to obtain the greatest altitude gain for a given airspeed and at the same time making a 180į course reversal.

2016 bottle. Medium yellow in color. Very cloudy but not quite opaque in a small tulip; it settles some after a few minutes. The head is white, medium-sized and fairly fizzy. Lots of apricots in the aroma. Fairly juicy. Strong acid note, mostly lacto in character, mild vinegar. Moderate to medium oak. Taste has medium acidity. Itís fairly sour but not mouth-numbingly so. Pretty nice fruit flavor. Good bit of under ripe apricot. Stronger vinegar acidity in the taste than aroma, particularly comes out as the beer warms a bit. Pretty big lemon. Some yogurty flavor, as well. Light to medium body. Oaky aftertaste. The sourness gets a bit intense as the beer warms, but itís rather nice at first. Solid but not great sour.

Poured from a 2016 vintage bottle. Aroma is rather apricot forward with some light pineapple, citrus and tropical fruit notes. Light oak notes with a bit of a grainy bread character. Pours a very hazy, pale yellow straw color with a medium sized, thin, white head that recedes to a thin film that lingers a bit thicker on the edges. Light lacing and faint legs. Flavor is moderately acidic with a a light sweetness. Some light grain notes with medium oak character. Moderate apricot notes though not as strong and bright as in the aroma. Light bitterness with some tannins from the oak and apricot skins. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice apricot beer with a balanced, but strong acidity. Some nice, balanced oak notes. Acidity is a bit strong perhaps, but still a very nice apricot sour.

Vestergaard (1543) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle at Dangerous bottleshares 20th edition!! Featuring Zakoon and Aaron. This one was an extra from a trade with Craig. Pours a hazy yellowish with a white, rather fizzy head. Aroma has funk, stone fruit, peach, aprictot, oak, super fresh fruity, but also some sweeter, spicy notes like vanilla, maybe even some cardamum. Taste is extremely sour! Burning sour, vinegary, grapes, lemon, poison. Tastes really good, but itís slightly over the top. High carbonation and a burning, juicy body. Drinking this with apologies to my dentist.

bottle, rich and tart. Tons of lactic flavors, very light on vinegar. Good oak presence. The first is moderate and throughout. Light fruit on the nose. Very nicely balanced, as most things from hangar 24 are. Cheers!

Bacterial (2766) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle shared in line at New Glarus. Cloudy light amber / yellow pour. Massive apricot nose and taste. Bright lactic acidity. Sounds like some of the bottles have gone bad? I really enjoyed my small pour. Funk and complexity and a lot of fruit.

750mL bottle, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out tart apricots and light funk. Flavour is quite bright, with very tart apricots, sour funk, and light acidity. Not overly complex but the flavours present are very cohesive. Very nice.

750ml, 2014 Thanks for opening Jeremy. Tons of sour peach/apricot. Quite a bit of lactic acid. Not the most complex thing out there, but I love it.
