COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wild Fermentation Ale brewed with Honey, Aged in Wine & Brandy Barrels
EL CUATRO is made of barley and caramel malts co-mingling with lactobacillus and brettanomyces. After brewing and conditioning, the beer is transferred into brandy & whiskey barrels to age for over a year during an extended Brettanomyces Lambicus fermentation. Prior to bottling, the beer is blended with a small portion of year-old SAHALIE. The only hops added to this beer arrive from the aged SAHALIE. 
The brandy barrels and wild yeast fermentation give EL CUATRO a plum & cherry fruitiness balanced by the slight toast of the malt body.

Bottle pour enjoyed at Ale Apothecary. First visit! Listed at 10.11%. I have notes on this beer from when Eugene opened this bottle a long time ago, but apparently I never uploaded it. Insanely tart presence. Golden orange pour. Plum, apple, and grape like flavors, and paired with a nice funk. A slight oak finish, paired with a dark fruit finish. Will add my notes from the first taste when I get the chance. An excellent, truly unique brew here.
