Funky 

Sour Series

Batch #1

Bottled 14 Nov 2018

Talisman's first sour beer was created using Saccharomyces Cerevisiae during primary fermentation and then moved to barrels where it underwent a secondary fermentation with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. It was aged in the barrels for 10 months picking up some great barrel notes and allowing the brett-brux to work its magic. 

 

This Funky beer presents the classic Brett-Brux characteristics of leather, tart cherry, and barnyard with a pleasant amount of funkiness. It is a complex yet balanced beer that also has characteristics of plum, oaky wood, and faint hints of earthy spiciness. It has mild to moderate acidity that helps balance the funkiness and has a great lingering finish that is both dry and crisp.

Style: Brett Beer 

Yeast/Bugs: Brettanomyces Bruxellensis/Saccharomyces Cerevisiae 

Barrels: Bourbon Barrels from Sugar House Distillery

Aging time: 10 months
