Description 

Wild & Funky takes a modern take on sour beer production which results in a soft, sour and refreshing beer. The blend is a Wild brew fermented with a mix of lactic acid bacteria, Brettanomyces from an original Porter, and champagne yeast which is then blended with a Funky brew fermented with lactic acid bacteria, Brettanomyces cultivated in house, and white wine yeast. He uses fresh apple and pear syrups in the blend, and finished with a slight dry hopping with Citra.

Triporteur Wild & Funky by B.O.M. Brewery is a sour beer from Belgium that is a departure from traditional sour Belgian styles such as Lambic or Flanders Red. As such, this beer is being evaluated as a Wild Specialty Beer (2015 BJCP Category 28C). For this style, a fermentation of various yeast and/or bacteria is conducted with added fruit to produce a sour, wild, yet enjoyable character that compliments the base beer and added fruit. For this beer, B.O.M. Brewery uses three fermentations including Lactobacillus, Brettanomyces, and Champagne yeast with apples and pears added.

The beer pours a cloudy, deep amber color while sporting a small finely-beaded, off-white head. The aroma is prominently fruit of apples and pears but with very restrained wild character. The flavor is moderately soured with clean lactic acid and very little character from the Brett. A light bready malt and a light but noticeable apple fruit compliments the primary lactic character. The beer finishes moderately acidic, clear with very little funkiness, with a hint of apple lingering. While B.O.M. Brewery hits the mark with a soured fruit beer, a little more Brettanomyces character would be welcomed.
