3.24/5 rDev -25%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A - Dark ruby red with an opaque body. Small trails of carbonation up the goblet
S - Tart blackberry sweet tarts
T - Tart up front with a slight Belgian yeast that gives it a bubblegum and clove. The blueberries are there but a bit overtaken by the Belgian yeast aspects. Not as tart as I had it previously
M - Syrupy sweet body with a softness from the Belgian yeast
O - Feel like they toned this down to have for the restaurant crowd instead of the beer one . Really soft overall and felt this batch was just an ok sour instead of one of the better ones.

So, Maybe this is just me, but I expected way more funk, way more sour, and far more puckering of the cheeks. This is extremely tasty, but more on a juice level than a wild ale. In short, I expected more.
A: served in a tulip. Deep amber hue, very nice head first poured, and a smattering of lacing as the beer is consumed.
S: malt and sugar on the nose. A little sweet cherry, with some apple spicing.
T: a lot of apple, caramel, and tons of sugar. Wild yeast is evident in the dash of citrus mixed in. Very pleasurable, but far too much like juice carbonated juice.
M: very nicely carbonated, and the malt is balanced well with the wild yeast. The carbonation attacks the back of the throat at first, but dissipates quickly. A little malty on the after taste, but mixes well with the sweetness left on the lips.
O: maybe this just hasn't aged long enough? I fully believe the previous reviews before me, but this is seemingly far too sugary to be correct. I'm not indicating a good wild ale shouldn't have sugary sweetness - this is just too much. I will glad try this again in the future to see if this may have just been a youngster.

Reviewed from notes. Very active pours with tons of head that recedes quickly, healthy amount of lacing. The nose is full of blackberries with yeasty notes followed by heavy earthy funk. The taste is acidic up front which makes for a tart experience on the palate. The fruit comes through strong at the end. Very nice wild ale. This has super high carbonation with a medium body. Overall, a tasty sour with tons of blackberry.
