COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously known as Gilgamesh. Continuing our adventure into the realm of sour ale brewing, we designed a recipe to create an Upland version of a traditional Flanders Red. Melding flaked maize into a turbid mash and adding Belgian candi sugar during a long kettle boil, we prepared this ale for epic proportions. We then incorporated wild yeasts and other acetic and lactic acid producing microorganisms for a year-long oak fermentation in bourbon barrels, which had previously been utilized to age beer. The journey was worth the hardships.

Surprisingly awesome sour here. A great combination of fruit flavors and funky tartness blends nicely with a great oaky character. I dont really get bourbon but the oak is definitely there.
