Okay., I like some sours and wilds. This is definitely one of them.

Cohesive but bold,, assertively tart but not a super pucker. Hops are aromatic and blend well with the tart. citrus, funky notes.

Simply put: quite good, tart, complex and balanced with hoppy aromatics. Nicely done.
If you want to pucker your face off.... This not going to do that. It shows what moderate sourness, zingy hops, and interesting flavors can do as a team.

Appearance. Slightly hazy, bright orange-amber with a thin white head.

Smell. Sweet apples, earthy hops and a little strawberry.

Taste. Sour peach, tart apples, some citrusy hops and a light funkiness.

Mouthfeel. Medium body with light carbonation.

Overall. Nice tart and fruity beer. Probably would have been better fresh with the dry hopping.
