Pour some in a tulip glass, relax your mind, and prepare to be delivered into a dimension of unrestrained pleasure.

After a careful kettle souring, this beer mingles with a veritable United Nations of funky cultures and wood until sufficient radness has been achieved. The resulting beer is sour, deeply funky and resoundingly delicious, with a quenching fruitiness and lingering oaky finish. It’s a psychedelic marmalade train in beer form. Drink it, and be excellent to each other.
