Notes: This beer uses the Lazy Susan base, but is aged in French oak barrels with more fruit (bring the total to around 3 lbs of fruit per gallon). Lazier Susan is a sour wheat beer aged with a mix of yeast and bacteria (Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, Saccharomyces, and Brettanomyces) and then has organic Masumoto family farm peaches and nectarines added in barrel. This all develops into notes of funk, oak, racy acidity, and juicy stonefruit.

Out of the bottle. Wow, this is the most funk that HPB has produced in a wild ale. Nice tart to acidity ratio, not overly sour. Extremely refreshing with notes of dirty peach. Sessionable. Looking forward to trying this again with some age on it.

Im a fan of HPB wilds, but IMO they lack the funky/dirty characteristics to take them to the next level...but Lazier Susan has reached that and this is my favorite of their releases to date

Pour from 500ml bottle
Hazy light yellow in color with quickly fading head
Smells of nice funky stone fruits. Taste follows the nose with a great level of acidity. Good carbonation on the feel that slightly dries your mouth with each sip. HPB knocked another one out the park with this. Definitely want to see how this does with some bottle conditioning.
