Black Project Spontaneous & Wild Ales
A Note on This Beer
ORION tastes like a funky, adult-style fruit punch — a quenching after work treat, or Saturday-in-the-sun refresher!
To craft it, Black Project gives this Fruited Sour their GABF award-winning wild yeast treatment. This lends the “outrageous” combination of real drippy peach, sweet pineapple, tangy raspberry, and puckering lemon and lime a sparkling funkiness.
The brewers also add luscious Madagascar vanilla and double dry-hop ORION with Citra and Mosaic. Each quenching gulp is infused with a silky balance and a light tropical splash of citrus and berry hoppiness!
Hop Culture says the distinct wild deliciousness and small-batch rarity of Black Project’s Sour Ales are like creative “performance art” in the craft scene revolution. Fans feel the same — they’re known for lining up for hours for a chance to snag new releases.
ORION is also a collaboration with Black Project’s friends at the esteemed Aslin Beer Co. Craft Beer & Brewing cites Aslin as “one of the mid-Atlantic’s top brewers!”
We suggest picking up a few cans to share — creative, ground-breakingly fruity collaborations like this don’t happen often!

Fruity refreshing and just lip smacking good!!!
Fruity and light with the perfect tartness
I think this could use a little more fruitiness
Super tarty and strong fermented taste
So much going on here, like a different beer from start to finish as it warms.
Perfect for a warm day
Good fruity sour. I taste citrus the most with slight hints of berry
Can’t pick out individual flavors, a lot going on but nicely tart
Very sour, in a good way. Super fruity and refreshing.
Could use more fruit but solid sour.
Very sour. Wish it was a bit more fruity, but I enjoyed it. Refreshing.
Lots of fruit, sour candy
Another solid sour. Very tart as well as their other beers
Amazing!! So tart and sour, love it.
A bit TOO sour for my taste. Very funky but still enjoyable.
Sour with a lot of flavors
Delicious and vibrant fruit flavors
A little too sour for my taste but the flavor was on point.
Definitely sour (the lime coming through) but great mix of fruity flavor.
Decent sour but not much flavor beyond the start
Good tartness, not overly acidic but it's there. Really glad it did not iverpower this beer. Fruit on the front and then setlles out. Some funky tasting yeast which I think works well with the fruit.
Very sour on my end but tasty
More sour than tart. Raspberry is very evident, with a hint of lime. Other flavors too, but they get a bit drowned out/put to the background.
Fantastic beer. Very fruity, raspberry and lime slightly overpowers the rest. But delicious sour and slightly tart
Lots of flavors going on.
Chiefly sour but light notes of pineapple and especially light lingering raspberry.
Crazy crazy sour (too sour)
great sour, fruit integrated to overall beer. loving black project wild ales
