On tap at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, CA.

Pours a hazy golden-orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with wheat, grain, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour grain, fruit, wood, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but there is an odd acidic quality in the flavor that diminishes the drinkability.

Serving type: on tap.

A: Poured a yellowish-straw color as it should with a small white fizzy head with a small dose of bubbles and faint traces of lacing

S: Plenty of barnyard on this with a nice wheat meets lemon smell. A nice sourness as you can expect.

T: Initial lemon tartness meets barnyard, like a horse stall would taste indeed. The wheat, brett and citrus, mainly lemon, really provide a good puckering sour experience but not overly tart and annoying. The finish is dry, sour and really lingers.

M: Light-medium bodied, well carbonated. The brett shines with the citrus as it rolls across the tongue giving me horse tongue. Pretty clean, crisp and refreshing even.... and easy to drink considering its a sour/wild.

O: Great beer, great name.
