COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A raw sour ale brewed with green, black and white peppercorns in the mash, this black and blue brew has zero hops and wasn’t boiled. However, it did find its way into re-charred bourbon barrels for 6 months. The abstract take on a classic French black & blue steak packs a good amount of acidity from fermentation with Wild Beer Co’s house cultures. For a final finishing touch, or a ‘steak sauce’, the peppercorns were added. A beer that you definitely sink your teeth into.

Garrold (5341) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2017
Bottle. Turner’s, Sheffield, I think. Clear as a bell, light amber gold. Loads of fast rising bubbles manage to sustain a bubbly, lively, white head. Nose has white wine vinegar. Wood shavings. Some mouldy lemon. Taste is dry and vinegar sour. Light, apple sweetness on the lips, maybe. Light body. Lots of acidity. Brisk, burp inducing carbonation. Acidic finish. Pretty harsh sour, with little in the way of balance. Not for me.

What’s Brewing 2016, day 1. Light golden body with a small white head. Vineous and acidic barnyard aroma, taste is peppery, sour, citric, with a dry tartness. Mild boozy finish.

Pours amber with a quickly fading head. Nose shows lemon pith, elderflower, herbal notes, soft woody oak, grapefruit and cucumber. Flavours include more cucumber, lemon pith. Aggressively sour.

Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2017
0.33l bottle. A quickly away-fizzing head on this one, leaving a mild cloudy darker golden colored body. Smells really nice though. Peach sour with woody tones. White sour pear, lots of apple. Red berries also in this one. Smells surprisingly nice this. Made me look at the bottle text. Complex and interesting stuff to smell at for sure. Tastes good also. Spicy and mild sour. Some sorrel, a rush of oaky dryish wood. Peppery and stingy. It has a mild oily texture in the mouth and it’s just about average on the carbonation. Long really pleasant sour grape like tail with lots of old wood. Quite nice and really different this. 31.03.2017

2/20 pretty much undrinkable. Huge acidity, huge sourness, not a pleasant taste. Too mad for me ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale golden color, white head with short duration. Aroma is yeasty with sourish and farmhouse notes. Flavor with a decent sourness, enjoyable vinegar notes with light fruitness and some citrus hints. Sourish on palate with light yeasty hints.
