This beer is a continuation of our quest to produce distinct beers using local indigenous ingredients. Wild Sierra emulates spring in the Sierra with the snow melting out of the forests and giving way to fruity/spicy aromas of the trees with a touch of earthiness from wet soil. Mountain farmhouse style is very alive with active cultures of wild yeast continuously changing the flavor profile. We use Belgian ale yeast, Saison yeast, and wild yeast harvested off of local PiŮon Pine needles in the brewing process. Our wild yeast also contains Lactobacillus which lends a refreshing tartness to the beer.

22 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma has yeast, light funk, grass, light tart character and hints of spice and fruit. The flavor more of a Belgian ale character and no dour notes. It could be a sweet saison as well. Did not meet expectations.

On tap at the Mammoth Bluesapalooza. The guy serving it didnít know what it was, but one sniff and I knew it was a farmhouse with bugs! Aroma has a nice tartness from the lacto. Nice and hazy, the flavor has the grainy wheat with some banana from the hefe yeast. The sourness comes through very well balanced! This is great and at a great price for an event like this!

Bottle. Medium yellow with a slight haze and a frothy white head. Grainy bread, banana sweetness, Belgian yeast, light fruit, and a touch of tart sourness. The tartness is very light, Iím not sure this would qualify as a sour ale.
