Bright yet dark this wild ale already started kind of wild with a near schizophrenic amber to orange color. The head was thick and frothy and settled nicely for a while.

The aromas are typical and yet atypical. Sour grasses and acidic vinegarish aromas yield a pungent earthy nose. There is some bready scent and some background fruit but also a yeasty component.

Sour, tart, acrid and funky this has all the elements of a farmhouse ale and it seems to go well. Some breadiness and doughy tastes work with a yeasty, light clove and orchard fruit. Some Sour Patch Kid sweetness and a bit of acrid pungency all mix to create an interesting and intriguing beer.

On tap at Max's (from notes)

A: Clear blonde. Ok lacing.

S: Farmhouse and yeasty.

T: Slightly peppery. Very light. Foamish. Like a farmy saison. I can sense the belgian pale here. Definitely belgian. Lots of farmhouse and yeast.

M: Foamy and lots of bubbles.

O: Interesting, but I have yet to have regular Matilda.
