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 ollalieberriesno, thats not a typoand waited patiently for two years! The result is amazing: a distinctively, dry, cidery, fruity, vinuous and oh-so sour beer. Bracing and refreshing.

Unusual hybrid berry, and unique berry beer. Substantive tart and yet berry juice sweetness. Worth seeking out. Dark berry colour. Wild and berry aroma. Delicious.

lefossoyeur (606) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2016
Pours pinkish purple with a small white head. Very nice mix of aromas, really winey, earthy, berries. Medium carbonation with a lactic bite, lots of red wine like character, reminds me of Pinot Noir, blackberry in the aftertaste. This is so drinkable, well balanced wild ale. I wish more american breweries would be inspired by these kinds of balanced wild ales. Not a sour bomb at all, and its a great thing.

toxichop (597) - South Gate, California, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Pours a nice deep ruby red. Head disappears quickly. Has a lot of horseblanket in the smell, their is oak, berries, yeast, some lemon. Nice inviting smell, complex and not harsh at all. Taste is of sweet and sour berries (nicely balanced). Oak and some acidy. Mouthfell is medium/light body, nice touch of sourness, with plenty of carbonation but its not too high. Overall, what an impressive sour. Lots of fruit and plenty of sourness. No odd flavors whatsoever.
