COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mysterium Verum. Imperium is the second release in our new line of barrel refermented wild ales, though it is the first to feature wild yeast that is indigenous to the Hill Country. Our Lost Gold IPA was aged in American oak barrels for 6 months after being inoculated with a strain of wild yeast that was harvested from the skies surrounding the brewery. While the aroma hints at a subtle tartness, the flavor centers around a dry, funky, barnyard character that matches perfectly with the elevated hop level of this IPA. OG: 15˚P IBU: 63 ABV: 6.6%

rougeau13 (2002) - Richmond, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Far from transparent orange-amber with a whitish head. Lots of filmy lacing. Strong aroma of flowers, citrus, and candy. Tastes moderately sour and pretty well balanced. Medium bodied; slightly dry. Very nice. The flavors aren’t as bold as some sour/wilds, but this one is quite refreshing and easy drinking.

Hazy copper with a thick head. Very sour aroma. Great sour taste with a little bit of sweetness. Exceptionally smooth palate and comfortable wet finish. Badass.

Tap at Hay Merchant Houston. Hazy dark but bright gold nice color. Small white lacy looking head. Nose nose is modest sour and funk. Taste is the same with some tangy lemon notes. Slight sticky body. Decent stuff here glad to see Real ale branching out.

Pours slightly dark and hazy golden color. Flavor is slightly perfumey and bandaids, with a fair amount of citrus/fruit hop presence as well. Sweet throughout.

Thanks to errl for sharing this growler. The beer pours a yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of brett and wheat, with some lemon and orange notes coming through. The flavor is similar. The orange citrus notes mix well with the leathery brett notes. I also get some grass and a hint of toffee. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
