3.53/5 rDev -7.1%
Picked up the last bottle on the shelf because of Russian Rivers reputation despite the price ($16.00). Bottle opened with a pop like champange which kind of startled me. Very effervescent with a head that quicky disolved. Smell reminded me of my trip to Belgium especially the tour of the Cantillon Brewery. Very tart, dry but interesting taste. Enjoyable but I did not feel it was worth the price. Based on other reviews, I would pick up a another bottle at a reasonable price point and store it for a year.

Bought this as I'm a RR fan. Little did I know the letdown I was about to drink
Appearance was typical, golden with a whole lotta carbonation. What I would expect from a saison.
Smell is where this beer took it home. The smell on this beer gave me multiple orgasms. It smells like sexy hook ups and no regrets.
Taste.... I found the regrets... I found them hard. This beer literally tastes like a malty pile of my puppy's leftover. No funk, no sour, no anything other than a depressing taste of why the fuck did I buy this 15 dollar bottle of BS.
MF: over carbed. done.
Overall, this beer is pathetic. It's over priced and tastes like garbage for that price point. Pretty shocked that SN and RR couldn't come up with something more than a drain pour. Whatever, enjoy my review, Im so disgustingly over this beer

- Pours a copper clear with airy white foam. This beer is very clear with no haze, almost like a lager.
- Smell is sweet earthy funk with spice notes.
- Taste is crisp, sweet malt mixed with grassy citrus flavors. Not getting much funk and definitely no sour/tart flavors. Slightly drying on the palate.
- Overall an interesting beer. Very crisp and clean on the palate with an interesting sweet, earthy, citrus vibe. However, it is not sour (which is implied with "wild ale")... I would describe this as a sweet saison. Worth a try if that style sounds appealing, but I'm a bit disappointed honestly.

Pours light orange with hazy golden hues and a deep fizzy 2 finger off white head
Smell has some light Belgian yeast notes forward and some aromas of peppercorn
That give it a slightly spicy smell. There is also a slightly cider like tartness to the backend
Taste is great there is some more spicy peppercorn like yeasty phenols forward that is followed by a crisp light cider like flavor along side some grainy malt. There is a slightly sweet, slightly sour, dry finish that ties is all together nicely
Mouthfeel is hoot high carbonation give is a crisp fizzy frothy mouthfeel that Works well with the medium body and sour finish.

ST: Corked and caged bomber bought from Small Batch Liquors in Denver. Served chilled from the fridge in a 0.3 liter New Belgium tulip glass.
A: Rustic amber color with slightly hazy body. Highly carbonated but head is very transparent.
S: Sweet, lightly peppered smell, with a tart apple finish.
T: Distinct Brett Brux taste: tobacco, dry, and highly crisp (probably due to high effervescence). The body is very light and taste is pretty light in complexity.
M: Highly effervescent, crisp, and light bodied feel. Gains a leather complexion upon warmth.
O: A nice Brett-like beer. It might have been served too young, as bottle notes it gains distinct flavor upon age. I would casually recommend it, but not worth actively seeking.
