T his wheat ale was first soured with lactobacillus in the kettle before undergoing fermentation in a white wine barrel with German ale yeast and bottle conditioned with brettanomyces. This berliner weisse maintains the traditional character of the style, while oak fermentation & brett adds depth and complexity to this light, tart wheat beer. Bottles will be $15 each, limit 6 bottles per person.
Batch # 4 is a 5.5% ABV Oak Fermented Tart Saison w / Passion Fruit & Brettanomyces . This tart saison was first soured with lactobacillus in the kettle before undergoing a mixed fermentation in a red wine barrel on passion fruit.
