750ml bottle split 3 ways into wine glasses. Thanks to BA morningthief for sharing this with me!

Appearance: Pours a hazy red orange (article I read about it online says it's "blood orange colored," which is spot on). No lacing.

Smell: Faint fruit juice smell. Weak. Some bread comes out with time.

Taste: Mild puckering sourness up front, leading to a profound blandness. Nice bready aftertaste. The sourness up front has a slight cherry fruit juice tinge to it. Middle is instructively bland; like you thought water was bland, but Birthday Suit is here to teach you otherwise.

Happily, the flavor score rises above a 2.0 as the beer does open up with time, and grows on me considerably. It's difficult to describe... a little floral and fruity, a little like wild yeast flavors. While it's very, very subtle, it's helped along by the great mouthfeel and pleasant sourness, and is quite enjoyable.

Not what you usually expect (or want) from a wild ale, but in the end it's actually very good.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Juicy and succulent, tart but not too much. High side of moderately carbonated. Great, clear vessel for the light flavors.

Overall: The well done mouthfeel carries this beer a long way. I could see being horribly disappointed with this bottle... but I think it's worth opening up your mind to what it has to offer: pleasant, subdued sourness, bready pale malt flavors, with a lot of complementary subtleties.

Hard to recommend, but easy to enjoy. At the right price, this would actually be a repeat buy for me.

A- Pink honey. Big bubble head that runs away as fast as it can. Hmmmm curious
S- Smell the pucker. Sour cherry as it suggests
T- Pucker before anything. Pretty sour. Taste is good but seems to be lacking depth (I guess it is only 5.4% though)
M- LOTS of bubbles. Definite drool factor
O- It's good. Was hoping for something a bit heavier in the mouth, but not at all disappointed.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Color is an apple red with some noticable carbonation and solid head. Smell is actually pretty non existant which I was very suprised by really nothing noticeable. Taste is nice good balance of fruit and sour. Mouthfeel is clean finishes crisp with a slight tart aftertaste which I want with this style. Overall decent beer but certainly not spectacular.
