Funky Whabbit Wheat was created by aging our seasonal brew, Whabbit Wheat (which is an unfiltered American Wheat ale brewed with peaches and apricots) in French white oak chardonnay barrels for nearly two years.  We added Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus to the barrels to eat at residual sugars over time, creating a horse blanket funk from the brett and a subtle lactic tartness form the lacto.  We then added gooseberries to the barrels to let the wild yeast and bacteria naw away at those sweet tart little fun drops.  The result is funk master flow of goodness- wild yeast esters and funky flavors meddling nicely with semi-sweet tartness with hints of white oak, hay, and light fruit.
