COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took our Razz wheat and soured it with B. Lambicus, Pediocaccus, and Lactobacilious it was then blended with our Organic Honey Nut Brown. Then blend was keg conditioned for 6 months allowing the wild yeast and bacteria to gorge themselves on the sugar rich nut brown portion of the blend. This beer is ripe with complexities including a fruity, musty, beady, and leathery nose and a light caramel covered raspberry flavor that finishes very tart and semi dry.

tectactoe (2337) - Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Corbet. Muddy, ruby-tinted brown body, mostly opaque & topped with a dingy, gray-beige collar that never fully reaches "head" status. Aroma of sour, sour raspberries. Very tart on the nostrils with a touch of underlying sweet purée for balance. A bit of wet leather & a hint of toasted malt showing the brown ale beneath. Nice tartness on the palate; tart raspberry flesh, sour lemon, mild lactic acid, & soured lactobacillus yeast. Finishes with some deeper notes of leather, nuts, & raspberry perfume, perhaps with just a light touch of acetic lemon skin. Nearly puckering, dry aftertaste. Very nice wild ale.

wedgie9 (2100) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Tasted from bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville. Pours hazy light cola with a thin beige head that leaves an average collar of lace. The nose is super abrasive sour, some lactic notes, and plenty of fresh raspberry. The flavor is the same with with more raspberry and a nice bit of funk. The body is medium and nicely tannic with average carbonation and a long super sour raspberry finish.
