A-Pours a dark orange with some pink. Lots of carbonation at the beginning, but settles pretty quickly. Almost no head to speak of.
S-Definite sourness and fruit will hit you right up front, but the wine and wild yeast becomes apparent later on to round it out. Very complex with the right amount of funk.
T-Tart berries and slight brett flavors. Very similiar to the way it smells. The blackberries weren't apparent right off the bat, but I did catch some green apple. All around crisp.
M-Fairly carbonated, but great mouthfeel. The wine barrels seem to give it a bit of a dryness, but in a good way.
O-Overall, a great sour. The tartness was balanced with the dry, crispness of the wine and wild yeast, even if can be a bit overwhelming in the long run. It's worth a try if you're willing to shell out the money and I'm looking forward to trying their other sours.

A- Somewhat orange body with lots of ruby highlights. No head to speak of, but some clear carbonation bubbles hang around briefly. Almost pours like a fizzy flat soda, but looks very nice once it settles.
S- Berries, grape must, oaky wine, slight vegetal aroma.
T- Starts out tart and funky, fruity and sour. About half way through the first sip is a big wave of sweet tart candy flavors. Incredibly sweet and incredibly tart. Finish is slightly more mellow with lots of blackberry flavor coming through in the way of sugar-sweet jam-like flavors.
M- Fizzy, high carbonation, light body. Very puckering, but no real alcohol presence.
O- A very nice sour that has hints of greatness. The jam-like blackberry flavors are fantastic, but the overwhelming blue sweet tart flavors sometimes get in the way. All in all a very nice sour.

Appearance is a orangish pink. Light carbonation upon initial pour which dissipates into just a subtle amount of bubbles hiding unless you hold the glass closely up to light. I smell barnyard funk, straight brett. There is a dryness exemplified by the wine barrel on the back end. Tastes juicy, with the blackberry fruit bursting at each sip. The Brett character is apparent definitely keeping the sweetness in check. Carbonation is light on the palate, but I think it's just fine for the style. Overall a nice American wild that showcases great fruit character. I loved this and the Lolita I had a few nights back.
