Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Don't know what to call it besides a Brett Beer. This one gets aged for 3 months in oak barrels with Brettanomyces Lambicus, a cool yeast that gives this beer a wonderfully pretty aroma and flavor that everyone better like or else I'll look you up and teach you a lesson.

Brewery release quality, without all the hypey bullshit and inflated price. Where can I get a keg? Oh, it pours a soft hay color, finely bubbled head bald blah blah....delicious!

Get it if you can, love these wackos at 2nd Shift! Also, check out PARKAS ASAP.

A deceivingly delicious, two-sided wonder. Not complex, BUT...fresh and sour up front followed by chewy malty biscuits on the finish, begging for another mouthful.
Great work by Missouri's little tattoo brewey that could.

Poured from a bottle picked up by n STL in May. Pours a bright straw and a bit hazy. Just a wisp of fine white head. Nose is dominated by lemony citrus notes with a bit of hay. Taste is very crisp with nice lemony tartness. Very clean finish and highly drinkable. Dig it.

Pours golden. Lambic like aroma. Tastes like a vinous manchego. There's a nice cheesy, nuttiness to it. A white grape juice finish. Almost candy like in that grape character. It lacks depth though.

Wow. This beer is certainly underrated. Crisp, clean, floral with a hint of funk. Some citrus and lemon zest to boot. Really impressed with this one.
