A Note on This Beer
The first time I saw someone put salt on a slice of watermelon, I thought it was weird. Then I tried it myself, and learned the truth!
Salt activates your salivary glands, so a bit of salt is enough to make watermelon taste juicier. And, the contrast between salty and sweet amplifies the melon’s flavors.
The Wild Ale specialists at Speciation take this experience to new heights by adding ancho chilies, salt, and lime to their Barrel-Aged Watermelon Sour to create today’s Symbiosis.
But the brewery doesn’t stop at unusual ingredients — this 4.16 UT-rated magic comes from some very skillful brewing wizardry! Symbiosis is a Solera Sour, meaning it’s crafted over several years by blending fresh beers with a continuously built-upon base of mature Ale.
The process adds layers of complexity to the brew, creating endless dimensions of flavor that bounce between wild funk, melon sweetness, slight minerality, and just a touch of chili spice.
Not many breweries can make Wild Sours as inventive and delicious as Speciation. But if you want to try Symbiosis, you’d better act fast. We have just 72 bottles of this watermelon margarita of a brew to go around!
