Notes: Inspired by the traditional spontaneous beers of Belgium, we
followed some Lambic processes while also intertwining
what we've learned over the years with our own practices and
also what our own native cultures prefer when fermenting
and creating a beer that best exemplifies us.

Fermented and aged to maturity entirely in one of our French
Oak Foeders, Coexpressionalism weaves together the
cultures of Side Project and de Garde in a turbid, aged hop
wort in which it took close to 2 years to find its harmony.

poured from a 750mL bottle into a stemmed bulb glass. pours a light brown color with an almost burnt orange hue with ample amounts of frothy white head. smells of musty oak and a bit of white wine. it’s not a super strong aroma but i’m digging it. crazy how much wine notes i pick up even though this is straight foeder aged. kind of lambic-esque with the funk and the must. taste follows with a nice vinegar-like acidic finish. kind of has a flanders-type flavor to it. more acidic vinegar than anything else. it’s not super aggressive or in your face though. mouthfeel is full, start to finish. less dry than i expected which is a pleasant surprise. overall, a nice collaboration from two of the leading sour beer producers in the states. while this had a lot of funk to it (which i associate more with dG) there was still that noticeable SP sourness and acidity that i would have been disappointed not to find in this beer. a well done collaboration.
