look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A-Pours a hazy copper color. A thin but dense head that randomly serves up lacing. The lacing is chunky.

S-It smells sweet and Belgiany with some decent funkiness. Hints of Belgian spice and noticeable Belgian yeast.

T-The nose was pretty funky, maybe even tart but the flavor is less inspiring. The sweetness takes over and the funkiness really dies off. Belgian yeast tang, spices, and a generic sweetness that is equate to something like rock candy.

M-Medium bodied with some heat on the finish. A little bit sticky. Higher carbonation.

O-I was intrigued by the nose then it really fell off after first taste. Too sweet and not funky enough for me. If the flavor was closer to the nose I would have enjoyed it more.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Carmine/rosewood body with a beige/isabelline head.

Aroma: Earthy, sweet, spicy - notes of blackcurrants, cherries, raspberries, and hint of caramel.

Taste: Much like the aroma, only with the inclusion of raisins, apples, and cinnamon.

Mouthfeel: Tart with a fair amount of carbonation.

Overall: I've not had many wild ales, but this one - for want of a better phrase - is awesome, particularly for spring/summer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

750 mL bottle poured into a pint.

Appearance - Deep orange. Big cream colored head. Retains forever. Lace sticks to the glass.

Smell - Tropical fruit. Sweet doughy malts. Some brett. Very yeasty, to the point that it detracts.

Taste - Bretty up front. No tang, just some earthiness. Sweet caramel, more rich and deep than the smell. Tropical fruit sweetness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Medium carbonation. A little sweet.

Overall - Not an interesting beer, but it's tasty.
