About Wild Ale

About Wild Ale
Wild Ales, are top-fermenting beers that are exposed to 'wild' yeast or bacteria, typically Brettanomyces, Pediococcus or Lactobacillus. Highly sour, funky, 'rustic', and controversial flavors like lemon seeds, barnyard, and horse blanket, to name but a few, are the result of these unpredictable interactions. These beers certainly fall into the 'acquired taste' category, but despite their challenges, often make interesting and unique food and cheese pairings.
