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.

jhamp9 (1714) - Corinth, Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Hazy pale straw color with a thin fizzy white head. Funky lactic aroma with hints of lemon and wheat. Taste is funky, tart lemon yogurt, green grapes, and wood. Dry and tingly on the palate. Bit astringent. Refreshing. Good stuff.

chinchill (4424) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Large shared bottle. Hazy golden body. Unusual aroma with a funky component that’s really separated from a pineapple-tropical fruit component. Moderately tart. Limited Brett and funk. High complexity. Excellent for style.

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

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.

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.
