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

A: amber gold with a quick head; no lace

S: lemony, grassy, musky

T: earthy, grassy, watered down lemon, tangy bitter yeast and hops

M: crisp, slightly astringent, bitter, chalky

O: never had a wild ale - reminded me of a more bitter, drier saison or biere de garde; also had some champagne-like qualities, but without any sweetness. so I don't know how it stacks up to the style, and it may be that I'm not partial to the style (although I do enjoy saisons and the like). I also drank it fresh, though I understand its character will age and improve. It went well with food, but I wasn't as fond of it without an accompaniment.
