COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first foray into the funky world of lambic style beers. These traditional Belgian style ales are exposed to both wild yeast and bacteria, as well as the addition of fruit, during the secondary fermentation. Ours began back in 2010, with the blend of two wheat ales and inoculated with Brettanomyces Lambicus, Brettanomyces Bruxellensis and lactobacillus. We then added ollalieberries—no, that’s not a typo—and waited patiently for two years! The result is amazing: a distinctively, dry, cidery, fruity, vinuous and oh-so sour beer. Bracing and refreshing.

ajnepple (7104) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2017
On tap at Goed Zuur. Purple colored and pretty clear in appearance with a lingering, fluffy beige head. Pleasant aroma of tart berries, mild vanilla, light earth, light sour funk and touch of toasted oak. Similar flavor, adding mild fruity sweetness, mild sourness and a hint of peppery spice. Medium to light body with a crisp feel, ample carbonation and a smooth finish. Nice.
