Sour / Wild Beer - Dark

The Dark Wild Beer and the Dark Sour Beer are catch-all styles for any copper to dark-brown beer where the implementation of a microorganism other than traditional brewer’s yeasts ensures a drier, thinner, sour and/or funkier product. Such microorganisms includes Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, Saccharomyces and Brettanomyces. Younger versions are fruitier, while older ones possess more depth of funk and may lose more of the base style character. The base beer style becomes less relevant because the various yeast and bacteria tend to dominate the profile. They are also often the result of a Mixed-Fermentation Blend of beers aged in barrels. Wood or barrel aging is very common in this type of beers, but not required.
