Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a New Belgium Globe glass. 2013 bottle.
Appearance: Pours a deep golden amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of off white head which fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the glass.
Smell: A tart, fruity, and yeasty Wild ale aroma with a big kick of citrus hops. Upfront scent of tart and sour cherries along with some funky Brett yeast and hints of wood and oak. Pale malt with hints of wheat, grains, straw, and cracker. Sharp and juicy citrus hop presence with hints of orange, mango, lemon zest, peach, pineapple, and grapefruit. Also some fruit hints of green apples. Also some background hints of earthy hops. A very good aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a tart, fruity, and yeasty Wild taste with a good juicy and bitter presence of hops. Big taste of sour and tart cherries upfront. Notes of funky yeast and Brett along with wood and oak. Pale malt with notes of wheat, grains, cracker, and straw. Fruity taste of tart green apple. Juicy citrus hop presence with notes of mango, orange, lemon zest, peach, grapefruit, and pineapple. Some earthy hop notes towards the finish. A really good sour taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Sour, juicy, and fairly bitter and drying.
Overall: A really great spin on a Wild ale. Great balance of sour and bitter hop flavors.
Serving type: bottle
