With a vigorous pour I only achieve a inch of off white head. Body is a hazy murky honey tone.
Nose is very dry and funky at the same time. With hints of lemon zest and pixy sticks. Nicely previewing the sour feel to come.
Sour dry funk on the buds is where this beer shines. So crisp like a green apple but with nice dryness and almost a tannin like feel. Really makes the taste buds pucker in a good way. Fruit is not really a player here except for the citrus zest.
Mouthfeel continues to pucker up, and work for the nice sour feel. A really nice sour brew without the overly fruity feel.

Hazy, rusty orange with a small white head that amounts to a loose collection of frothy bubbles. Tart, fruity aroma with some acetic notes coming through to join a touch of wood, while citrusy hops and grass waft above. Peaches, flowers, bergamot, and lime, getting better as it warms, adding a subtle tea-like smell to the equation. Sour flavor with a definite peachy, fruity hop element. Lots of stone fruit, grapefruit, and lingering sour lemon. Such a smooth melding of hops and sourness. Refreshing and drinkable, but not super acetic, which is pleasant. Very smooth and well rounded. Dry and slightly puckering, leading to some dryness on the gums. I could drink a lot of this if given the opportunity. I had to keep restraining myself from taking huge gulps. Seems less super dry and funky than Felix on its own, thanks to the lovely fruity and floral integration of hoppy goodness. Good stuff!

Glowing amber orange under an off white small but bubbly head. Aroma is lovely. Bright, floral and juicy pitted fruits/fresh peaches and apricots, and a tropical kind of refreshing tartness that permeates the nostrils. Nice doughy malts underneath. Taste is also very refreshing, sour but rounded out with lightly sweet fruit. Very dry and snappy throughout. Clean, fruity, tart, balanced, and extremely drinkable. The hops work great with their sour base beer here.

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.
