A: Peach.

S: Super lacto funk

T: Far less tart than the scent implies. Vinegar, oak, white wine that has been out in the sun for a day, grapes, and saison yeast.

M: Dry but with body.

O: Unique. Having sampled this at the release I wasn't overly impressed, However, it gets better after the first few sips. Shares some similar characteristics with the typical American sour ale but there is also a different kind of sour, a not-wholly-unpleasant rot sour, mixed in. The more I sip this, the more I enjoy it. Feral is an appropriate name. This one certainly is wild.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear golden orange body. Small white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Wow, it's impressive. Funky white pepper, lemon, sourdough malt. Light white wine. Oak.

Taste - Bright sourness. Grain malt. Sourdough malts again. Vanilla oakiness. Sourness builds into a lemony flavor with some light stone fruit flavors.

Mouthfeel - Nice sourness, maybe a little too much. Well carbonated.

Overall - This is really nice. A complex American sour, wow!
