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%

ansermadide (1524) - Kyle, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Semi-opaque deep-orange color with a bright white head. Nice and bright... great color! Its aroma is strikinly sour, with wood and a slight tartness decorating. Potent and strong, but smooth. In the mouth, a slightly different experience. Itís surprisingly light on the plate, thin-bodied, but with a penetrating alcohol and bitter wood finish thatís almost green. Despite its thinness, this is still a sipping beer. Lively on the tongue, too... feels like this would be easier to drink if it wasnít so lively.

(Draught) Pours a cloudy golden body with a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma of white grapes, fresh oak, herbs, and grass. Flavor of oak, white grapes, light funkiness, and earth with a dry finish.

Pretty good balance of funk versus hops. Itís definintely more IPA than "sour beer", but it is different. Should be fairly approachable for most, but it just doesnít seem very interesting. Maybe the effort put into production will pay off in future releases. Or maybe this should be bottle conditioned and cellar aged for awhile?
