Summoned on 7/12/10 wow time flies. I thought I only got this two years ago.

A: Pours a clear cherry wood caramel into a wide mouth glass

S: Aromas of sour lacto, wood, bitter spices and brettonmyces. Flemish Sour ale aromas. Reminds me of Monks Café Flemish Sour ale.

T: This starts off super bitter at first, lots of oak, a bittering taste that does definitely have some dandelion like qualities to it. Bitter ornamental salad tastes presumably from spices and dandalions. Light red wine flavors mixing with a bretty oak and lacto. Behind the first few flavors I do not pick up a ton of complexity . The beer is relatively watery without a ton of depth.

M: Light mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Slightly thin for the style in my opinion.

O: Overall not bad, but would not seek out again. After having a number of Uplands wild ales a few years back, I held onto this one and am just getting around to opening it. Not sure it was worth the wait.

Big thanks to Jedwards for the final pre-move blowout cellar crash. Color is brown with a soapy cluster of bubbles around the edges. Nose reveals tart dark fruits. Taste is exactly what you would expect from the nose - vinous and earthy with some medicinal phenols. Mouthfeel is medium-light with an even carbonation and some acidity. Overall, a solid dark sour. I've been wanting to try this beer for a while and I wasn't disappointed.
