Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: OBeerMeGreatOne on 02-18-2013

Wild ale fermented with Ollalieberries.

1500 lbs. of berries were added to Sour Opal, a beer matured 18 months in French oak barrels, then fermented using our proprietary blend of microflora for an additional 4 months. Bursting with ripe berries, brambles, as well as jam, the fruit eventually gives way to a tease of funky yeast, spicy oak, and a robust mouth-watering acidity.

-Pours a deep ruby red with pink foam which fades almost immediately.

-Smell is a nice musty barnyard funk mixed with some berry fruitiness.

- Taste is quite puckering sour and yogurt lactic funky. The fruit hits with good raspberry/blackberry flavors (I have no idea what an olallieberry is). Flavors fade quickly and finish is dry. Slightly jammy.

- Overall an extremely drinkable and pleasant sour that is well balanced. Decent complexity. Flavors fade a bit quickly (would've liked it to be more jammy), but still excellent. Reminds me of the two jester king sours I've had, Atrial and Nocturn.
