look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Bight bright red-pink. It's got a bubbly white head, too. I don't know what to expect as I have never had a beer that looks like this before.

S: Tart raspberry or strawberry, citrus, lemon.

T: Just like the nose but way more prominent. Tart raspberries and/or strawberries, lemon, kind of a funky bitterness, yeast. Oddly enough, I'm getting some sort of 'seedy' taste- like sesame seeds. Not bad, but I'm not blown away.

M: Light and crisp, but not completely. It's a little too light for my tastes, but it's not bad. It does take away from the beer though.

O: This was nice, because I've never had a wild ale before. I don't know if all of them are around the same level of sourness, but I was pleasantly surprised. It didn't blow me away, though.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

first hits the noise with raspberry, juicy fruit and leather.... followed by minty, floral, Olive notes. finishes Olive strong. with fuzzy white pillowy head that dissipates quickly...

taste it's raspberry sour sweet....with leather and malt, followed by again olives... very much like the nose.

mouthfeel is very medium , medium light.... slight sweetness, but finishes dry... very drinkable...

overall a well done beer... delivers a classic sour character...with a raspberry twist...

The beer comes in an amber orange color.

The aroma has tart cherry, raspberry, a lemon tartness, and a bit of funk.

The flavor has tons of sweet tart raspberry, lemony tartness, lactic sourness, wood, and funkiness. Some sweetness and dries like white wine.

A very well done wild ale.
