Style | ABV
American Wild Ale |  7.80% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
We brewed this ale with around 40% rye as a base malt and let our sour yeast and bacteria eat away at it in oak barrels for over a year creating a sour ale with a complex character of rye spice, oak and a subtle funk.

4.61/5  rDev +8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: orangey amber with thin off white head and cloudy

Aroma: sour, lactic notes and spicy rye character evident, cherry, vanilla

Taste: vanilla and oaky at first but then cherry flavor comes thru and finishes pleasantly bitter finish

Mouthfeel: thick and full but the sourness cuts the mouth feel to make it a little more drinkable

Overall: great beer! Just like how they do it in Belgium. Great cherry and sour notes that are made more complex by the oaky/vanilla notes. Spicy rye malt kicks up the flavor more than wheat does in many Belgian sours.

Serving type: on-tap
