Notes/Commercial Description:
Sour beers are famous for long aging periods, wild microbes, and flavors that are more complex and intense than any other family of beer. Commonly referred to as Lambics, these beers were once only brewed in a specific region of Belgium and have recently made a migration to breweries of America. Imploring ancient techniques, Seven Day Sour is brewed with a first and second 'slims' process, and a malt bill built with over 30% raw wheat and 30% chit malt to dramatically drive up starches and proteins which our quirky wild microbes love to feed on. We sour this recipe with an advanced and progressive method utilizing a hot fermentation in the kettle with Lactobacillus, followed by a cool fermentation on brettanomyces; making this beer anything but simple. Seven Day Sour is a young and unblended gueuze showcasing a refreshing acidity and complex bretta notes. 5.0% ABV; rare.

"A llama ate bleu cheese. Shat it, and played in it"

This just wasn't good - after drinking so much flawless crooked stave, this just tasted like licking a petting zoo - definitively "barnyard". I couldn't finish it. Hell, I couldn't even come close to finishing it.

Wax dipped 375ml poured into straight pint glass. Pillow white head which dissipates after a minute or so. Cloudy, pale yellow. Smell is wheat with a slight brett funk and lemon. Tastes is intensely sour, loads of lemom, with a dry wheat finish. Overpowering at first but it definitely grows on you. I can tell it's a sour worting but only by the nose and it's not offensive. Very nicely done. Great summer sour.
