look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 22oz bomber into a tulip.
Appearance: medium golden hue with a light haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy white foam. Not much in the way of retention or lace, but not bad.
Smell: sweet and fruity aroma with a two-tone tartness: a deep sour component combined with a light, evanescent piquancy which I think makes for an intriguing aroma. I really enjoy it.
Taste: starts off with a tartness and a kind of Brett-style funkiness, which fades into a fruity middle ground. Finishes with a broader sour character. Not as quite as intriguing as the aroma, but really quite good indeed.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a nice, big creaminess. Great job.
Overall: massively drinkable wild ale. I'm not always a fan of New Belgium, but this bad boy, weird as it is, really suits my taste. Dig it.

22oz bottle split with my wife. Served in a Prairie teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator!
A - Glowing orange apricot, with fine bubbled white head. Semi hazy.
S - Lactic and salty minerals, tropical fruit, lychee?, bubblegum, grassy hay, musty wood,
T - Candy tartness upfront, muted pink lemonade, tropical fruit, pineapple, soft caramel malts underneath. The sweetness builds toward the finish while the tartness fades but finishes dry and very crisp and refreshing.
M - Sharp carbonation, light to medium body, crisp and refreshing feel.
Nice balance of sweet and tart both of which are fairly mild. It's not puckering sour but it has a nice tart edge to it. Some woody funk and a nice fruit profile. Crisp and refreshing, a great summer time beer
