Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer is very unique and inspired by breweries in the Lambic region of Belgium and, especially, our friends at Cantillon. It is 100% spontaneously fermented, meaning yeast is not added. Once the beer is brewed, it is transferred to a cool-ship or “horny” tank located in our barrel room at the pub. There it sits overnight and collects whatever funky wild yeast and bacteria may be living in the room. The next day it is transferred to oak wine barrels where it ferments wildly and ages for a few months. The end result is a wild, spontaneously fermented, sour, and tasty hand-crafted beer!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A very big thanks to Mulder1010 for this and it pours a beautiful golden hazy hue with a one finger wispy head and a touch of lacing,the smell is so inviting its oak,green apples,musty funk and white grapes,the mouthfeel is medium bodied with spritzy carbonation and on taste it's just like a fine lambic you would find in Belgium with sour Granny Smith apples,oak,white grapes and finished with a nice sour tartness and overall it's a nice wild ale but Temptation is still my favourite cheers.
