Notes: Ferus is a wild ale fermented with two strains of brettanomyces and lactobacillus. It is then aged for 12 months in red wine barrels fresh from a local winery. The end result is a tart and complex ale with notes of red wine, oak, fruit, and spice.

500ml into a wine glass. Pours a crystal clear new copper penny, yellow egg cream colored head, minor lacing.

Fair amount of complexity in the aroma, wine barrel funk is prominent, strawberry and unripened peach, lightly sour.

Disappointing, more oak than anything followed by a strong lactic sour with a dose of bile. No fruit definition, just a white wine uncorked last Tuesday. The aroma showed great promise the flavor ignored. The brett is distinguishable, if you pay attention. Light bodied spritzy mouthfeel.

Batch 2. I wasn't impressed with early forays into wild beers from Mraz but they seem to have turned the corner. This and other recent examples have been good to great.

Im a huge fan of Mraz Brewing. Mike the owner brewer is a belgain master. He has won multiple awards and Golds for his belgain and sour brew. This beer imparticular is a great 100% brett Lacto balance with a great mouth fill and zesty notes with a nice hint of oak.
