Sour / Wild Beer - Flavored

The Flavored Wild Beer and the Flavored Sour Beer are catch-all styles for any beer with a clear flavoring element and 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. 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. It also features an harmonious marriage of the additive and beer, but still recognizable as a beer. The additive character should be evident but in balance with the beer. (For example: fruits, spices, herbs, vegetables, coffee, honey, chocolate, maple sirup, chilies, nuts, vanilla, liquor - BUT not including Smoked malt or barrel-aging element resulting from the brewing process)
