Draft offering pours a hazy golden copper color with a finger of head that fades leaving a full wall of lace all over the glass.

The aroma is briney with vinegar. Some phenolics poke through with plastic and a pepper quality almost like arugula. It isnt terrible but the wild attributes are not in line with my preferences, it seems more "off" than desirable.

The taste is super sour with a peppery green spice and a soothing vanilla oakiness. Some strange brine character is present before getting acedic as it warms. Like the nose suggested, there are notes of plastic also to be found in the flavor profile.

This is a medium bodied offering with a modest amount of carbonation. It is very bitey with a lot of barrel and brine. An interesting interplay that isnt terrible but also isnt that great either. You win some you lose some, not every wild ale the bullfrog makes is an instant classic. Im glad I got to try it but id avoid this in favor of just about any other wild ale they have made. (998 characters)

Golden clear and bubbled with white head. Very musty earthy smell. Tastes unbelievably complex. Flavors from everywhich direction. Very earthy, oaky taste. Finishes sour. Some lingering flavor but fading carbonation. Overall pretty good. Very sour though. (255 characters)

"100% wild fermented ale, aged in new oak for two years". This is a serious sour, funky and stinky and unique. It hits all the barnyard notes you expect, and then some. Dirty diaper, dead skunk, stale piss, cow shit. Wonderful.

The body could use a little more work and heftiness, but overall this is a wonderful, bizarre brew. (329 characters)
