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!

peteinSD (1336) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle from Adam -thanks! Pours a semi-hazy cider yellow with a quickly fading white head and steady carbonation. Aroma is light tart, subtle funk, and a bit of a vinuous or white wine note. Taste is straight forward medium sour with lemon and perhaps white wine grapes in the middle and a nice bit of tartness on the finish. I do not get any funk, cheese rind, etc. in the taste. I like the beer. Crisp, enjoyable sour but does not taste like any of the gueuze that I have had thus far. Good beer nonetheless.

500 ml bottle courtesy of Todd. Pours a light orange gold color with a medium sized white head. Aroma of sour apples, oak, cinnamon and fruit funk. Taste of sour apples, funky apple cider notes, cinnamon and oak. Very nice.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Courtesy of BOLTZ7555. It pours brilliantly clear gold with thin white head. The aroma is smooth sweet apples and apricot as well as delivering some sugary notes and then moving more toward saltiness and a thin ribbon of sea shore. The taste has an initial pulse of tartness and then moves quickly into a bit of salt, a brine sense, a mild level of apple and pear fruitiness. Behind those notes is a touch of sort of white wine fruitiness and dryness. These notes all play wonderfully together.

Bottle shared by beace @ Jackie O’s. Pours a hazy golden color with a fine white head. The aroma has more fruit than I may have expected. Vinous, oak, vanilla with a bit of acidity. The flavor is vinous (white grapes), moderately tart, oak with some funk. This was definitely not what I expected, but drinkable nonetheless.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Bottle generously shared by Sparky...Eric, you ROCK!!! Somewhat wine-like with lots of tropic fruit (guava, mango, papaya), red grapes, honey, and spice. This one also shows lots of oak, vinegar, and funk...love the level of carbonation that ignites the palate and level of complexity that keeps the palate guessing.

(bottle shared at Dak’s 5000). Pours a cloudy yellow color with thin white head. Aroma is vanilla, wood and some fruit (concorde grape). Taste is sweet and tart. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Nice beer that has some sourness and sweetness in balance.
