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!

Taste thanks to Chris!
Gold-amber pour, frothy white head. Nose is sawdust, apple juice, sugar, ethanol, burnt toast, and citrus. All over the place, arguably balanced but not serving any one purpose. Flavor has more apple, grape, hints of Brett and citric acidity through sticky finish. Nose has too much, flavor too few, and body is an odd mix of refreshment and oppression. Definitely seems like an experiment with its good and bad parts.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light gold body with a white head with light retention. Brett, oak, funky, and bretty aromatics. Sour lemon, brett tones, horse blanket with hints of wood and apple notes. Dry oak tones and a sour finish. Nice.

phaleslu (6278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2010
500 ml bottle from STLWill- thanks, Will! Pours a cloudy gold color with a small white head. Aroma of ripened apples, brett, lemon juice, oak, sweet malts, and pineapple. Flavor of lemon juice, brett and lactobacillus, oak, champagne, fresh squeezed limes, and funk. Light-bodied, with a tart, sour mouthfeel and crisp carbonation. Sour and fruity. Nice and refreshing, but not quite what I think of as a gueuze.

50 cl bottle via trade with thickfreakness - Pours a crystal clear golden color with a one and a half finger thick white head. Very light lacing. Aroma is full of esters, light herbs, and oak. Flavor is tart esters with a touch of oak and pepper. Finish is not as sour as I thought it would be. Medium body. I’m no Sour fan, but this was a nice beer. Thanks Charlie.

500 ml bottle thanks to Toby. I love those cool penciled in labels. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. A sweet fruity nose, some vanilla and funk. A fizzy cream soda-like flavor, some funk, lots of oak, but sweet and not sour at all. Very unusual, a different take. Interesting.
