Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed for the 4th Anniversary party. Grisette in style.

Native Two is the second in a focused series of wild and mixed fermentation beers from Tree House. Brewed with spelt, malted wheat, and oats, Native Two then rested for 4 months in stainless with a blend of Brettanomyces, lactic acid bacteria, and our native microflora. Simple, rustic, and refreshing, Native Two features a gentle tartness and a dry finish, making it a beautiful choice after a day in the sun!

Bottle opened three weeks ago; just about one year old.

A - Slightly hazy golden yellow pour from the 500ml to a becher glass. A foamy white cap rises to a finger high with decent retention. A small ring drops webs of lace.

S- General mix of tart producing bacteria cultures with lactic prevailing. Lemon and underripe stone fruit come to mind.

T- Basically like the aroma with more stone fruit character like sour apricot. Lactic bacteria and raw grains produce the bulk of the flavor. Raw spelt. Tart rather than sour.

MF- Light body and a medium carbonation level. Just a bit of frothy foamy texture and a tart ending.

Lactic bugs and a hint of whole grains make for a very solid, sessionable sour but one that could use just a bit more dimension.

Pours slightly hazy golden straw color. Fizzy white head thumb 1 knuckle high. Very light (almost faint) citrus, cut grass, sour/funky aroma. Tastes of lemon peel, sour apple, with an underlying (pleasant!) taste of a vinegary white wine, this gives way quickly to a light almost peppery arugula-ish finish. Overall an excellent example of what a farmhouse style beer can be!

Pours a very clear vibrant pale gold in color with a half finger of rapidly disappearing white head. Aroma is subtle with a sour hint, lemon, and a touch of green apple. Taste is lightly-moderately sour with green apple, subtle wheat, and a lemony tartness in the finish. Medium-Ish body and light-medium carbonation. Overall a solid wild ale but it lacks the complexity that I would expect.

500 mL bottle. Lightly hazy yellow body. Citrusy aroma, kinda woody aroma, lemon acidity. Tastes lemony with a strong wheat grain flavor. A little bit of orange citrus. Light body. Well carbonated. Tasty, tart, and refreshing, but doesn't have much else going on.
