COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rarely released in its purest form, Ananke is the backbone of our wild ale program, a base beer used for blending and fruit infusion. Named for the ancient Greek Goddess of inevitability and personification of destiny, necessity & fate, Ananke helps bring order to an otherwise chaotic universe. Such as her namesake, this delicately sour ale’s presence is felt throughout all of our barrel-aged beers. We present to you this batch, with raspberries added in the secondary tank. Stin ijiasas! Ingredients: Pilsen & acidulated malts; raw wheat; flaked rye; Perle hops; top-fermenting yeast; wild yeast & bacteria; natural, limestone-filtered, Edwards Aquifer H2O; raspberries; love

(Draught) Pours a clear pale pink body with a medium off-white/cream head. Aroma of raspberry jam, wood, horse blanket, and subtle leather notes. Flavor of raspberry, pedio, white grapes, and lacto with a moderately dry wood finish.

Bottle through trade! Pour has a deep red raspberry color and a fizzle of white head. Aroma has big ripe raspberry, light acidity, berry seeds, and a nice touch of wine barrels. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation medium low. Flavor kicks the base beer up a bit, light tart acidity, berry seeds, oak, raspberry, and a lingering finish. Overall it is a nice fresh berry sour.

Big thanks to cfh64 for the bottle. 22 oz. bottle served in a Half Acre snifter. 2012 release.

A: Pours clear ruby color with no discernable head. Light frothiness around the edges, but nothing special.

S: A lot more funk than acticipated. A little cheesy with some raspberry freshness. There is a mild tartness on the backend with a little wine grape aspect to it.

T: Tart raspberry upfront with an almost sweet tart candy like middle. Oaky and red wine-esque in the finish. Mild funk in the periphery, but taste was all about the fruit.

M: Light bodied with a prickly carbonation level to break tarness. Pretty drinkable.

O: The duality of the nose was something. Very funky in the nose, not as much in the taste and vice versa for the raspberry. I enjoyed this beer, but would have liked a little more balance between the nose and taste.

markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2012
On draft for GABF 2012. Pours a hazy pink-yellow with a white head. Nose is tart raspberries, some oak, light funk, and some vinous tartness. Flavor is similar with a burst of berries in a house of vinegar, sour, tart fruit, vinous qualities, and bits of oak. Light to medium in body and a nice sour overall.

2012 Bottle, bomber. split 2 ways at fridge temp and allowed to warm. red-pinkesh hues. Nose is bright fruit, minor fecal matter, a hint of tang soda and broken dreams. Taste is nice. very dry, semi-sweet finish. not a huge burst of raspberry but this is quite old now. hint of balsamic, great mouthfeel. has a nice backbone with spice.

brnandersen (4186) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2014
Sample from 65 cl. bottle. Hazy, deep orange colour with a thin, white head. Sour aroma with raspberries, citrus and spices. Taste is lightly sour. Medium body with a creamy texture. Finishes sour with raspberries and fruit juices. Nice Sour.

3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2013
bottle. lightly hazed brick red body with a shallow film of a white head and no lasting retention. medium to heavy oak with strong acetobacter and lactic acid aroma and flavor; mild to medium dryness and tart raspberry pulp flavoring with a strongly salivating acidity and a vitamin-like, chalky yeast residue left in the finish. overall it’s pretty well rounded, very quenching and satisfying washing of the tongue with the acid. nicely done. thanks Alan.
