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.

Extremely sour with no balance or complexity. Sauerkraut with alcohol. Not my cup of tea.
