T-Sour, tart, i think some of the oak barrels come through.
M-light on the pallet
O-Great beer. I am excited to see how this ages. Cant believe it is already off the taps at the brewery!

Huge thanks to Rathakem for this Block 15!

375ml bottle with pressure cap.

poured into Block 15 tulip glass.

Appearance: Slightly opaque golden yellow bodied beer with almost a full finger of bone white head. The head drops down to a thin ring around the tulip.

Smell: Big bright citrus especially lemons. Some lactic tartness and a hint of funk.

Taste: Nice mix of lemons and oranges, really big citrus flavors. Hints of pineapple sweetness, a hint of white grapes, and a hint of wheat malt. Moderate tartness with just a little bit of dusty and horse blanket funkiness. Nice oak barrel that is contributing a decent amount of woodiness. Just a hint of earthy notes hiding in the background of this beer. Really well balanced and complex sour ale. Mild lingering tartness from this beer.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. The carbonation levels are exactly where you would want it to be. The 7.25% abv is hardly noticable and the beer drinks like a 4 to 5% wild ale. Its just very well brewed beer here. The beer has a little better than a semi-dry finish.

Overall: I gotta be honest here this beer is on the same level of RR Beatification. To compare the two beers... Wild Canary is actually a little more balanced and less aggressive version of Beatification. Though I do prefer the higher carbonation levels of the Beatification and Beatification is a better looking beer with a bigger head. None the less this Wild Ale really impressed me and I am glad that I seeked this beer out. I gotta tip my hat to Block 15 for brewing and blending this outstanding beer.
