look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a hazed golden orange color. A two finger white head forms with good retention and lace.
S: Tropical fruits up front. Big mango, pineapple, and peach. Followed quickly by an musky basement like funk. Fruity ester, bread and biscuit malts. A substantial acidic twang in the finish. Lots going on, and really well done.
T: Just a hint of that musky and basement like funk. Though not near the intensity of the nose. Instead, more tart and acidic fruits that mingles perfectly with the tropical like fruits from the hops. Some esters, some biscuit like malts. Like the nose, a ton going on here, and I love it.
M/D: A light body that has a great effervescent bite. Crisp and finishes very dry. Everything works perfect here, which makes it so easy to drink. The substantial tartness and dryness pulls t he checks in and makes me want to keep drinking.

A great low alcohol, fruity, and hoppy wild ale. Everything mingles perfectly and is a treat to drink. The kind of experiment that does not always pan out, but in this case was done with finesse. Well done.

Bottle to pint glass

A: terrific tangerine/golden look, turbid and bright

S: N/A due to stuffy nose, but no overwhelming waves

T: sour, calm, smooth between sips

M: silky and polished

O: I'm not much of a sour beer guy, but I would most definitely buy this again.
