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.

Bottle from Tipples. Pours a nearly clear dark orange color with a one finger off white head. Sour lacto dominates the nose with some apricot, peach, and a little white vinegar. Not the peach version but still has some of those notes. Really nice. Flavor is a nice crisp sour green apple, with plenty of lacto and big acidity. Some light fruits and a hint of spice in there dancing around, and a clean dry finish. Light to medium mouthfeel with effervescent carbonation. Really awesome sour here.
