Cellared between 53 and 66 degrees F for 2 years.
A - Transparent golden color with a nice lacey white head that faded consistently from a half inch in my mini-snifter.
S - It has a farmhouse aroma to is that is kind of a musty-sweet.
T - Rather mild flavor for an american wild. Certainly not sour but it seems as though it was heading in that direction.
M - Mildly coarse and slightly dry with much of the texture on the tip of my tongue. It is a nice feeling brew, without a doubt.
~ This isn't something I would necessarily seek out. However, this one aged in my cellar for two years. I would like another bottle to see how it would end up after 4 years in the cellar.

22oz bottle served in a Prairie Teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one! Cheers!
A - Hazy amber/apricot color with 2 fingers of soapy tan bubbles. Zero lacing with a thin cap.
S - Earthy citrus, acidic, white wine, granny smith apples, sharp sourdough bread, dusty grains, over ripe tropical fruit, pineapple and mango, sweet but funky. Fruity alcohol coming through.
T - Follows the nose with earthy citrus, grainy bread, peppery, old grass, apple juice, muted lemons, dry yeast. There's a hint of acidity, but not as much as the nose describes. The finish brings more pepper along with some bitter melon rind.
M - Annoyingly high carbonation, you can't hold a drink in your mouth for more than 2 seconds or it just completely turns to foam. The body is thin for a split second. So you have extreme opposites.
I'm not exactly sure but pretty sure this is a few years old. An interesting beer for sure. The mouthfeel threw it off a little for me. I'm not a fan of swallowing straight foam. Great aroma. The funk is delicate without being light, very earthy with notes of sourdough bread and tropical fruit.
