"SKUs me, is there any room on this shelf for another new brewery? There is? Great!!" SKUs Me, which is our very first blend, was fermented with Brettanomyces yeast and Lactobacillus bacteria and aged in oak barrels. This moderately tart golden sour beer has notes of lemon zest and hay.

Lukaduke (3038) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland ! Pours a medium golden color with a finger plus of white suds. Lots of lemon funk, lacto buzz and nuances of lime, cheese and a hint of nectarine as well. Soft background grain adds a nice layer of softness to the bright sour palate. Some lingering vanilla and a touch of acid burn late in the finish.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2015
Rare Barrel tasting @ Malt Attacks, Brussels, thanks Pierre for sharing the bottles. 75cl. De couleur dorée tirant sur la paille, col fin blanc. Arôme est boisé sur des notes de chêne assez modérée, rétro offre une palette de levures sauvages avec un brett assez dominant. Pointe fruitée rappelant le pêche. Palais est malté tirant sur la drêche, note acidulée vers le citronné, pêche et groseille blanche. Ici, le côté spontanée et fermenté tranche avec ce rappel de brett tellement populaire côté américain.
