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!

Thanks to Skyview! Light orangish pour Aroma is oak and apple/plum, yeasty. Flavour is full on tart sour, melon like fruit presence, medium somewhat smooth maltiness backing that. Nice brett funk works very well.

BVery (6126) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle at MN Gathering @ Skyview V. Mostly clear pour that is dirty yellow with a small white head. Nose is spot on with the peeling of a plum. Medium palate. Hugely sour taste, fruit, grape, and slight brett. Awesome.

hivemind (708) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle courtesy of James, shared with James and Streets. Pours a mirky, muddy yellow-brown with no head. Aroma is of wild berries and yeast (and maybe even some banana?). Palate is very tart and sour, but not excruciatingly so, and without much vinegar present. I get raspberry and either melon, peach, or some other non-citrus, non-acidic fruit. Perfect balance of tartness/acidity, dry fruitiness, and funk. Very wild stuff.
