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.

fly (1487) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Was it work and need of beer that made me like this so? Do nor really think so - mood of bar was more on the somber side as I attempted to give myself a late birthday present.. So rather think I liked this despite conditions. On the simple side? Well, perhaps not deeply complex except that they definitely hit what I like in a sour - tart, managing to get "clean" wrapped around the funk. I mean some sours are just barely hinting at it and some are battling other bits of the brew, be it malt or infection or whatever. Starw colored, if that helps. Read other reviews as I cannot ever pull good descriptors, just gut feeling.
