4.01/5 rDev -5.4%
S - Lemon, lactic acid and wheat in the nose. Light orange citrus and oak as well
T - Tart lemon, light sour sweet tarts. Light vinegar presence as well that gives it a sharp edge. It has a slight funky, oaky orange citrus that reminds me slightly of juicy..
M - Light carbonation that give the beer a soft feeling. Dry finish
O - A good light sour that is a bit muted overall. It is definitely refreshing and could see myself really enjoying it on a hot TX day.

Huge props to nicks6217 for surprising me with this.
Mildly hazed golden straw with a short-lived white head that falls to a slight collar. Assertive bead.
Nose is a lovely marriage of tart citrus and rounded barrel notes. Vibrant lemon, grapefruit and blood orange supported by a refined vinous oak canvas, with hints of heather and fennel.
The acidity goes into overdrive, lending full-on sherbety qualities to the citrus. But at the same time, the white wine and oak character softens the rough edges.
Buzzy and tangy entry, mellowing gradually as the oak and tannins smooth things out.
Bloody tight. The base wild ale would almost be too hot to handle on its own, but the barrel treatment keeps it firmly grounded and ensures drinkability.
