Had a sneak preview last night...
An American Wild Ale with complexity and balance. The aromas were split into three camps, and all good: Like a rich young (slightly spicy) Maduro Cigar fresh out of the humidor, funky complex organic aromas like saddle and horse blanket (slight cattiness), and some sweet and herbal Coke/Dr. Pepper syrup character. Well balanced.

Nice warm brown color and a tan rocky head.

Flavors followed up in spades on the promise of the aroma. Rich and complex balance of yeast esters, brett funk, and lactic tartness - thankfully, leaving behind the lactic slap in the face so many American Wild Ales have. Character is similar to the recent Rhodenbach "Vintage" releases - with less tartness and none of the metallic thing going on. With age it will be like shrugging on an old comfy brown wool sweater. Again, well balanced.

Medium light body and clean finish.

Overall, possibly the best American Wild Ale I've had; in that it is comfortably funky without screaming "I'm Wild!". It balances ale yeast, brett, and lactic characters well. Nice complexity and richness. I'll absolutely buy some, and maybe lay a couple down for 3 and 6 years.

Now if they can take a couple casks of this and throw it together with some sour cherries (like the legendary Rhodenbach Alexander), I will camp on their doorstep and beg for pints.
