750mL into a tulip. Pours a clear copper color w/ a big fluffy white head that settles to a patchy layer of sea foam.
Aroma is tart and floral. Jasmine, hibiscus, and other tea-like notes blend with a sour lactic acidity.
Taste is likewise a mix of herbal/floral and a subtle sourness. Seems somehow a little watered down, muted. Pronounced hoppy bitterness contrasts, and almost clashes, with the sour.
Mouthfeel is sharply prickly from the high carbonation. In most cases high carbonation levels don't bother me but here, I find it detracts from the beer, masks the taste.
Overall a less than stellar wild ale. Not bad, just not all that great either.
