Mixed Berry Asheville Sour (for Eddie Hazel)

This is the first beer to be released in Asheville that was fermented 100% with local, coolship captured wild culture…no other yeast or bacteria added. The mixed field base beer was fermented with this wild culture in Chardonnay barrels for 8 months then blended with over 2# per gallon of blueberries, blackberries and boysenberries for an additional 6 weeks.

The aroma is amazingly complex with intense fruit and pleasant funk, acidity is fairly high but far from being a one dimensional “lacto bomb”. Big berry fruit flavors.18739664_1896130190601029_2740837142426037067_n
