COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 2, 2011
A: The beer pours a pale yellow color with a finger of white head. S: Unlike some other strawberry beers, the fruit actually comes through on this one. Nicely tart with lots of berries and a hint of vinegar. Theres a light grassy funk with some lemon peel and a touch of oak. T: Quite woody with plenty of strawberry and lemon flavors. A touch of vinegar to go with the lactic acidity. Mild earthy funk, mostly grass and straw, with a light mustiness. M: Fairly light bodied with medium to high carbonation. O: Really a nice beer. I was impressed by the amount of strawberry and the tartness was excellent.
