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.

Poured from a 750ml bottle (2013 vintage) into a stemmed tulip glass and shared with a coupe friends.

A golden body with a beautiful reddish hue, massive lacing. A massive nose that is dry, spicy with lots of acidic citrus and a massive tart/sour aroma, slightly sweet. The palate is sour and acidic; a bit salty. The rye keeps the malt dry and spicy, the sweetness in the nose is absent on the palate. Not much oak. It finishes long and tart. Medium body and carbonation. Wow, a really nice brew; super tight.
