7-9% Mixed Fermentation Ale Aged in Rye Whiskey & Pinot Barrels

Be Still is our dark sour and presented barrel-still, without carbonation, for optimum mouthfeel and balance. Brewed with roasted barley and biscuit malts, the structure of the beer comes from acid produced by our house lactobacillus culture as well as acid from brettanomyces and pediococcus activity during the 10-month aging period in rye whiskey and fresh pinot noir barrels. Prior to bottling, the rye and wine portions are blended together and allowed to sit on cascara (sun-dried exterior fruit of the coffee bean) and cocoa nibs to add depth and complexity. The beer retains the fingerprint of our yeast culture and evolves in your glass, but is a wild departure from our lively bottle-fermented offerings. Be Still is a glimpse into an alternative beer universe that is just waiting to be explored. Due to the nature of this beer (yeast-free), it is recommended that you consume the beer fresh within 3-6 months of batch date on bottle to avoid oxidation flavors from shrouding your experience.

Bottle at Beer Legends beer tasting; dark chestnut brown pour with a thin tan head, aroma has chocolate and dark fruits, taste has some sourness, but mostly chocolate, struggled with this.

Dark caramel brown cider appearance... Aroma of cocoa nibs, whiskey, light funk... Flavor is not really tart, light cocoa, whiskey barrel, funk, amber malts, caramel... Stillness usually works better with gueuze... not a huge fan, decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark reddish color with a light tan head. Aroma is barrel, funk, sour, chocolate. Medium bodied, chocolate and barrel flavors dominate with funk. Ehhhh? It's OK I guess, I'm starting to like AA less than my first impression a few years ago.

Christmas tasting. Dark Amber pour, tin bubbly head. Pit fruit savory aroma. Taste too is fruity, plums, funky notes.

Unique and weird. Cool, yet not my favorite from AA. 500 ml bottle pours muddy brown. Love the barrels notes. Cocoa and bitterish cascara is different for a sour, but it's pretty lightly sour. Still crazy complex like the other beers I've had from them, but I only like it instead of LOVE it. Crazy that a 3.9 is easily my least favorite of 6.

Pours barely translucent muddy brown, not much head. Aroma offers fruity and dusty malt notes. Tart fruit forms the core of the flavor, mainly apple, plus a little fresh malt and a peppery hint. Mouthfeel offers typical body and fizz, as well as a dry and wine-like finish. Be still.

Very interesting sour. Starts of with a chocolaty tartness that gets increases as the beer warms up. The rye barrel helps compliment the sour and does not over power it at all.

Wine bottle. A little rye barrel, a little alcohol, but light sourness balances. Flavor is a cool mix of sour and wood and alcohol. Cool sstillish shit.

mcberko (20528) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle at Saraveza Farmhouse Festival, pours a still dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out lots of sweet perfumey notes, sherry liqueur and dark fruits. Flavour is unusual, with notes of rye whiskey and sherry liqueur. Has a lot of nail polish in there too, but it’s not too detracting. Not carbonated (duh), but it works well.
