A dark wild ale featuring regional malts and fermented in sorghum rum barrels with our house blend of native yeasts and brettanomyces and aged on a blend of raspberries and cherries. Jammy fruit notes are balanced by a rich malt forward body and a dry finish.
The name of our golden sour ale was inspired by the heirloom Wrens Abruzzi rye malt provided by our friends at Riverbend Malt House. German legend has it that the wren cunningly hitched a ride on an eagle’s back to become the highest flying bird and was crowned as ‘king of the birds’- kuningilin. The spicy and earthy character of the rye malt used in this rustic refined ale is held aloft by a tart acidity drawn from our house strain of natively collected lactobacillus and crowned by a bright dry hop blend of Vic Secret and Amarillo hops.
