The Dissident in Barrels

Eighteen months in isolation, The Dissident is a distinctive Flanders-style brown ale, with a fruity aroma and flavor. Deschutes’ signature wild yeast beer, brettanomyces and lactobacillus impart its characteristic sour taste. Brewed with whole Western Washington cherries – pits, stems and all – selected by Brewmaster Larry Sidor, The Dissident is what the brewery calls  their “wildest, most expensively pampered beer.”

Available in all 15 states where Deschutes is sold, latest The Dissident recently found its way into barrels and will make an appearance later this summer. Brewmaster Sidor says  “The beer will be released (in bottles) on September 15, bugs willing, and a sour amber (a soured version of Organic Green Lakes Amber Ale to be known as “Green Monster”) will be releases on September 15, 2011.”
