Aged for eighteen months in fresh Cabernet Sauvignon wine barrels, Dihos Dactylion features a primary fermentation using a proprietary blend of saison yeasts, a secondary fermentation of our house brettanomyces wild yeast strain, along with lactobacillus and pediococcus bacteria added to sour things up. Dihos Dactylion bursts with aggressive aromas of red wine and a touch of brett; delightfully sour to the taste, initial lactic acid flavors hit high in the cheekbones before transitioning to complex layers of soft fruit, oaky-tannins and red wine.

PhillyCraft (6779) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2012
On tap last year at Kraftwork. Pours a glowing penny color with cloudy body. Head is small and colored white w/ tiny bubbles. Good lacing webs on the sampler glass. Aromas of bret, lactic acid, juicy dark grapes, chardonay, oak, and granny smith. Taste really surprised me, very impressive. Tons of oaky buttery caramel, sour barnyard yeast, pedio, peach, hint of green pepper, apples, oaky cabernet tannins, and tons of sour vinous cherry. The mouthfeel is so juicy and salivating. One of the best beer I have had from Avery.
