What an interesting, funky, tasty beer. It starts out enjoyable but only gets better as it warms. The sourness is prevalent but not overdone. And the same can be said for the funkiness. Lots of strawberry and raspberry flavors, some maltiness,, and a smooth mouthfeel and aftertaste. Really cool and fun. Will definitely drink more of this when I get a chance.

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.
