COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Buddha’s Brew is a 4.7% alcohol by volume sour wheat ale fermented entirely in oak barrels and blended with Buddha’s Brew Kombucha. We racked unfermented wort directly into oak barrels and inoculated it with souring bacteria. From there, it spent nine months aging in our barrel room before being blended with live Kombucha from Buddha’s Brew at bottling. Like all our beer, it’s unfiltered, unpasteurized & naturally carbonated through re-fermentation in the bottle.

Slightly hazy yellow orange in color... Aroma of citrus, grains, tea, funk... Flavor is light and citrusy, tea and lemony notes, light funk and tartness on palate... Reminds me a bit of das wunderkind with more tea notes... Super light and crushable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at the source. Pours a hazy orange color with no head. Orange and lemon juice nose and flavor with kind of a slight black tea flavor. Very lemonade-like .Light sourness. Light mouthfeel.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2015
750ml bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Hazy golden orange color. Thin white head. Leaves good bits of lace. Nice bready wheaty malt, good oaky funk, some nice citrus funk. Medium to bigger body. Good full feel to it, mild slick texture, lighter, smooth carbonation. Really enjoyable, balanced sour ale.

b3shine (9200) - Indiana, USA - NOV 6, 2015
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a slightly hazy gold with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; tart, oaky, and funky. Tastes like it smells, but not as balanced. More lactic. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Good beer.

3.2
TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Pours a nice straw yellow and hazy. Oak, wheat, and brett on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very sour on the finish. Not my cup of tea, being blended with the Kombucha, but overall, not bad.
