A 2009 bottle poured into a snifter. I'm grateful to the whomever brought this to the tasting and hope to have another opportunity to try this again as well as buy the person a drink. Clear fairly dark orange with a thin film of head on an aggressive pour. Light lacing on the glass when, but it slid quickly back into the glass, with only a few bubbles here and there.

Aroma was very balanced but complex, green apples, white wine vinegar, white grape sweetness, pears, light floral and earthiness and some funkiness as it warmed up.

Follows the nose nicely, sharp acidity at first from the vinegar like flavors, but just a nice fruitiness mid palate, green apple sweetness and tartness, sweet pears, light stone fruits, floral and a bit of wet soil earthiness. Finish was dry, with some lingering fruitiness, long enough to be satisfying without being too funky.

Light body with minimal carbonation, a slight prick of a bubble here and there, but expected for a wild ale. Very easy to drink but one to savor with how nice it is at two years old. Hopefully Toronado still has a 2010 bottle available when my birthday approaches in a few weeks as I was hoping to go open one then. Excellent beer.
