8 Wired Gypsy Funk 2016 (500ml Bottle)
This is an intensely sour brew. Aged in wine barrels for up to 2 years, then heavily dry hopped with the unique flavors of all NZ hops. This is a very complex and super sour brew that was a massive hit for 8 Wired at GABS Auckland. A good amount of expletives were shared over its super sourness and heady, oily resin and heavy funk characteristics. A must try for the sour lover!
Sour ale is a broad spectrum of wild ales, from the fruity and acetic Flanders Red Ales and Oud Bruins, to the experimental ales gaining popularity in the United States which use lactobacillus, brettanomyces and pediococcus in new and wild ways.
