3.98/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

$14.35 for the 750ml corked and caged bottle.

It pours a slightly hazy and bubbly coppery orange with about an inch of foam. It's also a very loud beer. <g>

It smells of Brett, and has some bitter and se.mi sweet notes. Maybe a hint of tartness.

Lightly bitter on first sip, the Brett at this stage is mild. Other points to mention, there's a very light tartness here that may also develop over time. The finish is a mix of basically all I've mention with sweet and some fruity tartness most noticeable.

Medium bodied with the carbonation at...sometimes lively, sometimes mild. Yeah, it starts of in the sips as mildish and finishes with quite a bit of fizz.

This is good. I have to say I didn't expect an overly sour Wild when I saw the name...Domesticated Wild Ale. ;^)

3.8/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Clear copper, some loose bubbles and streams rise quickly. Murkier as I approach the end of the bottle. Champaigne-quality head with better retention. Artwork hints towards a retro-70's coloring and font, a little bland, but concise and clear.

S: Wildflower, honey, tart fruit, a bit of spice. Maybe a little of the classic 'malt and yeast' smell.

T: Tartness is all up front, and a little mild; afterwards I get herbacious notes, some yeast, and rounded off with malt. Dry. Yeasty finish. I would prefer more of the tart-sour character to come through, and would expect it seeing from the refermentation with brett. Maybe it needs more aging?

M: Light, dry, prickly. Perfect combinations for a refreshing effect.

O: Pretty darn good, consider my S & T scores to be 3.87- falling just short of getting rounded up to 4. A good mix of flavors and smells, but they somewhat trip over and end up hindering each other. A beer I will always enjoy, despite some minor shortcomings.
