We named Amasa after Amasa Bushnell, the first farmer to officially grow hops in Sonoma County in 1858 along with his hop growing partner Otis Allen. Their original hopyard was in the Green Valley region of Sonoma County near the small town of Sebastopol. It soon became evident that between the climate, soil, and other factors hops could easily be farmed and thrive in Sonoma County. Amasa is an extra dry domesticated wild ale brewed and bottled to be enjoyed now, or aged. Ringing in at just 4.5% ABV, Amasa is not only sessionable, but it still retains a lot of flavor. The use of Brettanomyces yeast in the bottle conditioning process lends a rustic characteristic to the beer. If aged, many of the unique yeast qualities in the beer will become even more evident.

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 9 | Overall: 9

    Sampled on 6/27/2014. This wild sour ale pours a light orange gold color from a 500ml bottle. (Bottled on 12/20/13). Large sized white foamy head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and slightly tart, citrusy, floral, and a touch bretty(dry). A light to medium bodied wild ale. The malts are fruity with a little bit of sweetness, but mostly dry with some tartness. The hops are floral and citrusy. Nice carbonation. Crisp and dry, light and refreshing. Bright and yeasty, with a touch of tartness. Reminiscent of a brut champagne. Very dry throughout. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is dry and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly tart.
