Days of Being Wild is a series inspired by the tradition of lambic style brewing in Belgium. This is the first mixed fermentation program of its kind in Asia. With a mixed-culture fermentation featuring a medley of wild yeast and bacteria strains in a single foeder, these beers have haunting complexity, natural farmhouse funk and refreshing fruitiness.

This version is a blend of our barrel aged foeder and barrel aged sour blonde to achieve a well-balanced and complex wild sour ale. A combination of Black Leaf (黑葉) and Gwai Mei (桂味) Lychee varieties were selected, carefully hand peeled and added to the secondary fermentation, giving the beer an enticing sweet and juicy aroma. Its funky and sour notes contrast with the soft floral notes of ripe Lychee. Oak ageing lends a mouth coating layer of vanillins and the finish is satisfyingly dry.
