COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the tradition of the Lambics of Belgium but using a blend of Ale Yeast, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, and Acetobacter. These microorganisms came from our culture collection as well as many collected by Dan around the wilds of Wisconsin! Fermented and aged in Oak. This beer spent the summer of 2009 aging outdoors in used oak barrels. Then bottle fermented. This is a funky and very sour beer not for the faint of heart. If you are unfamiliar with sour or Brettanomyces beers you may want to pass this one up!

Drake (8765) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Bottle courtesy of deyholla. He deserves lots of props for trading these to me. Derek is a really cool guy. Pours a clear amber color with a thin head that doesn’t stick around. Mildy tart aroma with big apple notes. The taste is tart, much like apples again, some citrus and a faint mustiness. Medium bodied.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Bottle (marked as bottled 8.6.10) thanks to LtDan. Pours with a huge white head and a clear (until the last pour) orange body. Aroma is floral and vinous, spicy wine notes, currants, alcohol, cedar and wood. Flavor has a strong lactic sourness. Acidic, with apple cider and oak. Tons of lacto. Lively bubbles, dry and acidic but also EXTREMELY thin. Reminds me a lot of an oak and lacto cider I made; sour and refreshing but with no body.

50cl bottle pours a clear, burnt gold with a cloudy white head. Nice, peppery nose, floral, honey, fresh wood, sawdust. Flavor is tart, sweet, lemon, lime, sawdust, wood shavings. Medium bodied, dry finish. I’d never had a beer that had the flavor of fresh wood. We’re talking the floor of a carpenters shop.

500mL courtesy of CaptainCougar. Big thanks for this rare treat! And a big ___ you to all the drones, zombies, mules, and grunts that hoarded this beer at release time like a bunch of automaton pricks.

Pours a clear yellow with a thinning, white head. Okay retention. Aroma is light sushi vinegar, light funk, tropical fruits, fresh lemon, oak, and citrus like what you find in young chardonnay still in the barrel. Taste is hot acetic sour, white sushi vinegar, spicy sour heat. Palate is spritzy, light.

Good thing I didn’t trade a Dark Lord vertical for this stuff.
