Blended American Sour. O'so Brewing presents Funk Factory's inaugural blend: Dweller on the Threshold. Averaging 18 months, this is a blend of sour beer which has fermented and matured in French oak wine barrels. It was then bottle conditioned and will continue to mature in the bottle for up to 10 years if kept dark and cool. Enjoy this sour, wild and of course funky beer!

Thanks to Nick for providing this one :thumbup:
Quick review from written notes.

Pours a bright gold, virtually still, a few larger bubbles around the edges, but none linger. A few bubbles cling to the bottom of the glass.

Freshly sawn oak and low key Bretty funk in the nose. Taste is firmly tart and feels fairly mellow, Brett is expressive, some light notes of butter and dry barrel tannins in the aftertaste. Supple feel, low carb, easy enough to drink. Could use a little more time to carb up, but that's just a guess. A good sign of things to come, let's just say.

750 ml cork and caged bottle poured into an O'so tulip.
5.25% ABV, 254 / 450 bottles

A - Vibrant with clarity, this funky sour pours a deep golden honey color with a fleeting white head that, despite the acidity, lingers as a halo above the beer.

S - Teeming with an absolutely classic Belgian-style sour funk, Dweller on the Threshold is slightly citrusy, a pinch vinegar-y with sharp tartness and acidity but funky like old gym socks and barnyard-like wild at the same time. Suggestions of honey sweetness and cereal grains hide in the background, barely peeking through the funky nose.

T - Tart and acidic lemon citrus is washed away by musty, funky wild yeast that imparts a basement like profile that suggests worn leather and wood paneling, two attributes that perfectly coincide with the white grape skin undertones of the wine barrel aging.

M - Light on the carbonation like the Belgian lambics, this American blended sour ale is light-bodied and extremely tart starting with sourness creeping in closely behind and finishing bone dry!

O - O'so and Funk Factory have teamed up to create one of the best damn lambic brews from this continent. Every aspect of this beer screams "Belgian" from it's authentic wild and funky aroma to it's unique wine barrel aging flavor and tremendously sour bite, Dweller on the Threshold is an exciting achievement in collaboration and Wisconsin brewing!

While it's delicious and sour young, I'm confident it'll get even better with some age on it.

Grape heavy, oak as well. Mildly sour. Tad bit watery, not much carbonation.

Bottle into snifter

Wow, amazing sour! Light golden color and substantial carbination. Beautiful brew.

Smells funky and sweet. Lemony, zesty, funky.

I wish I had a few of these to see how they age. This is a great sour.
