American Wild Red Ale

This liberation begins its journey as DBA then continues through a chrysalis process involving 87% French and 13% American Oak barrels, and our proprietary collection of micro flora. To blend, we selected beer matured eight to 24 months in barrels, creating a synergistic beer. Immediately, toasted oak and lemon pith swirl on the nose and palate, followed by an amazing harmony of vanilla, coconut, Earl Grey tea and spice. The finish is crisp, with mouth-watering acidity and chewy tannins. Since we age, blend and bottle these beers once a year, there will be slight variation with each release. A sant!

seymour (1957) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Sampled at the 2016 Czech Heritage Festival in a footed pilsener glass, a cloudy reddish brown with sudsy beige foam, long-lasting with lace. So, Double Barrel Ale is delicious and complex as is, right? Well, this is infinitely more so: beyond tart into sour territory, crisp and grainy, earthy, leaf composty, black pepper, vanilla, toasted oak, yogurty, lemony, intense carbonation with a Champagne bite. Light body, thirst-quenching without being thin nor watery, lingering multi-layered aftertaste. A phenomenal brew.

Bottle gifted from cali, pours Ruby Red with a frothy head, banging citrus with lots of depth. The sour is complex and the barrels make a grand job of it. Semi sour Taste lingers and is very nice. Bangin
