We aged last year's Leisure time Lager [a spiced, wheat lager] in wine barrels with wild yeast and souring organisms. Through this process, the beer is transformed creating a lightly tart, funky and dry beer. Prost!

Bottle. Over a year old. Poured a clear yellow color with a light head. Aroma was still fairly sour and tart. The flavor has begun to die off a bit. That being said, it still boasts some tartness. Finishes grainy with a lingering sour, dry feel. Held up pretty well.
