Cool. That's exactly what I took away from your review.
Jeez I looked on the bay to see if anyone put up a battle priest, sure enough, one is at $102 with about 6 and half days remaining. That shit cray!
Yeah, this dude is doing rather well selling FFF's stuff:
Don't forget to order a Kate Spade bag or some True Religion jeans from him!
But is there anything that says an AWA has to be a sour?
According to BA's definition of the style:
If this beer were fermented with Brett, it would appear to meet BA's definition of an AWA. Whether it is sour or not doesn't matter.
I don't think you guys understand what what "wild" in AWA stands for. The wild stands for wild yeast, which is for the most part Brettanomyces. So I would say AWA is a very good style for this beer. Brett does not produce sour characteristics. I fell this misunderstanding is common because almost all commercial beers that contain Brett are soured with bacteria as well, so people associate brett with sour beers.
Thanks for the explanation, but I do understand how sours are made. I was raising the question (perhaps not clearly) if categorizing Batttle Priest as an AWA was most appropriate since it's a Belgian Strong Pale Ale w/Brett. Two relevant examples are Boulevard's Saison-Brett that is categorized as a Saison even though it has Brett and Green Flash's Rayon Vert is a Belgian Pale Ale w/Brett and it's categorized as a Belgian Pale Ale. For consistency I'd say Battle Priest probably should be categorized as a Belgian Strong Pale Ale. For the most part, despite the definition, it seems that in practice American-brewed sours are categorized as AWA's on BA. My second statement was exactly what you were stating just because a brew has Brett added doesn't necessarily make it a sour. I'm fully aware that Brett only adds funk.
I'm the one who picked AWA, and I picked that style because it's consistent with Russian River Sanctification. AFAIK Saison-Brett and Rayon Vert have brett added AT BOTTLING, whereas Battle Priest is 100% Brett fermentation.
Ding ding ding.
This was fermented with only brett yeast, those other had brett added after the primary was completed by a non-brett yeast. If this beer isn't considered a American Wild Ale, I think that the category is completely worthless as a description of the beers with in it. For that matter almost all commercial sours included in the AWA category had bacteria for souring added after the main fermentation was completed with a non-brett yeast, similar to the beers w/brett you mentioned. Should those not be included in the category?
Thanks for the explanation. Makes sense!
It's probably a bad idea to post the same picture in BA that you used in your Ebay post.
Couldn't just drink it? Or trade it for other tasty beers you may want?
Then I just got hosed. That's what I get for peace-ing out at work midday on a weekday showing up in business casual. Ya know, the non-hipster, non-tatted up crowd likes good beer too.
I grew a beard just so I could buy FFF's BA stuff.
*Adds to "do not trade with" .doc*
Also, Willy seems to be some form of God since he is in NY and NWI at the same time.
Yeah, didn't get that either. Either way, I'm not going to dwell on that fact too much as I kind of want to hit him in the face with a shovel.
Yet another 5 year "vet" gone down the eBay path. I could almost swear that half of the "vet" accounts that recently became active are these types.
Not my bottle or pic I just posted it so others could see what the bottle looks like
cool story, bro
The listing that featured that picture has since been removed from eBay...hmmmmm...
This guy sold a Mutiny & the Mollusk for $34?!?!?! I need to set up an eBay account!
Guessing e-bay price starts at 80 bucks
Sorry, what did this sell for retail?
$35, I think
You can look it up on the web.
Yes, Battle Priest was $35.
I think FFF is selling more of this today
At what time?...
drat...it'll be gone then by the time I get there...
I hope one shows up at a tasting...I missed the bottle being passed around at the Indiana Microbrewers Festival...
bastards. maybe this means I need to take a half day next Tuesday and wait for the 2pm announcement...
Anyone actually pick one up yet? Do we know if it's still part of the original 480 allotment or is this a different batch?
Also any update if it's sold out yet?
bummer. was heading there thursday midday. hopefully another surprise for me then.
Friend picked one up, #136/480
Said it looked like there was a fair amount left. I would assume the same batch since it's out of the same amount of bottles.
I wish I had known about this earlier when I was already out near that area!
...Oh well, already have 1
My fiance was down there.. so she rolled up to grab one.
There were about 12 people ahead of her and more behind her when she got hers.
Pretty impressive for an hour before I got mine (4:10ish) at the first release.. imagine it won't last long.
Just heard from a friend that it's still available as of 15 minutes ago.
FYI: they're selling them chilled
Info from an employee at FFF: They are selling the rest today, and it will sell out today. They do not have plans to brew this again for a long time
