Description: We're so excited about this, and so should you! Tommie Sjef is one of the best 'Lambic' blenders in the world, brewing a pale wort at various breweries throughout the Netherlands. He then uses his very own special spontaneous fermentation yeast starter, collected from Belgium & the local area, and ferments in oak barrels and expertly blends each beer. The process is incredibly small batch, and we're very lucky to get some bottles in. Vegan Friendly

A note from Tommie himself on the beer: As you might know, we often cross the boundaries between beer and wine — and vice versa. In that sense, this wild ale is no exception. We made a blend of several barrels of beer with different ages (1 up to 2 years old), which were macerated with different types of grapes — three in total: Olasz Rizling (white), Muscat (white), and a little bit of Kékfrankos (red). The concentration of fruit in this wild ale is high: 425 grams per litre. In the aroma you’ll find floral notes like roses and elderflower, light strawberry notes from the addition of the red grapes, and a touch of spice and vanilla from the oak barrels. The scent might remind you of a natural wine: funkyness and apple skin. With the first sip you’ll notice the firm tannins this wild ale has. This is a result of the long maceration on wine grapes. Together with a high flavour density and solid acidity, Olasz offers a very wine-like drinking experience. Note: when drinking it young, we recommend to decant the Olasz well, to open up the aroma — give it some time. This beer is suitable for several years of aging, to balance itself out, and let the tannins soften.
