Our complex, Belgian-style ‘wild beers’ are aged for several months or even years in our oak barrels. Each barrel contains a different base beer (with distinct color, flavor, body, alcohol, malt and hop character) which undergoes spontaneous and prolonged fermentation with wild critters including Brettanomyces, which is a non-spore forming genus of yeast which lives on the skins of fruit in the wild. The genus name Dekkera is used interchangeably with Brettanomyces and was discovered at the Carlsberg brewery in 1904 by N. Hjelte Claussen, who was investigating it as a cause of spoilage in English ales but which is appreciated and encouraged in certain traditional Belgian-style ales.

BARREL #1: Flanders/Oud Bruin

Belgian style Flanders/Oud Bruin naturally soured by spontaneous/wild secondary fermentation and aging for over two years.

Powerfully sour flanders ale, reminds me of monk’s cafe a bit with its sweetness but it isn’t as sweet as MC so it is good.

Sample at GABF 09/26/2015, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Reddish-brown color with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing. Aroma of cherries, oak and malt. Medium body with flavors of funky cherries, yeast and malt. The finish is fruity with a dark cherry aftertaste. Above average overall.

a well done if not standout sour. pleasant funk and oak sour twang on the palate and in the nose. some fruit, leather and cola in there as well. would be a great intro to the style beer.

deyholla (12037) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Sampled from the tap at 2010 FOBAB. Poured a hazy reddish brown with a bubbly light brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a strong tart cherry note with a sweet cherry and bread backing. Flavor began with slightly sweet cherries, but they quickly became sour, even slightly acetate.

daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 22, 2012
GABF. Reddish brown. Cherries, vinegar, toothpicks, some preserved lemons, yeasty funk. Flavor is sour and very fruity, pucking with some vinegar notes. Damn, another winner!

cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2013
GABF 2013. Pours a hazy reddish orange appearance with a tan head. Tangy, vinegar, black cherry, raspberry, oaky aroma. Pretty fucken sour, dark berry, cherry, acetic flavor that finishes again quite sour. Pretty good for what it is but a bit too strong for me to really enjoy it.

DuffMan (10610) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle, shared with Parksy at the brewery. Hazy medium reddish brown, average tan head. Caramel and brown bread, red wine vinegar, dry finish. Appropriately malty, moderately sour, very enjoyable.
