4.35/5 rDev +6.1%
Pours burnt amber and relatively clear in color with a thin off-white head.smell has some notes of oak barrel apple cider vinegar and hints of cola. Taste follows nose with a great hefty sour presence up front followed by oak barrel more sour and and a slight musty sweet grape fruitiness. Mouthfeel is lighter in body highly carbonated yet sticky from the sour. Dba was not really detectable through all the sour but it was an all around great beer.

Appearance: minimal head, low carbonation, orange-brown in color, hazy
Smell: sharp sour mix and slight wood smell
Taste: A great mix of oak, sour mix, toasted malt, and graham crackers
Mouthfeel: sour with a touch of sweetness, medium in body, low carbonation
Overall: Another winner from Firestone Walker. Not the most complex American wild ale that I have had, but it sure is tasty. It is right up there with my favorites for non-fruity sour ales. I would get this again in a heartbeat if I could find it on tap.

this one tastes like something jester king would make, or has made even. its a nice mix of bretty weirdness and conventional lacto sourness in the finish, and has a nice red malt middle, a ton of bubbles, and a pungent stenchy dry finish. its wild ale at its finest. i dont get a done of oak on it, and it has a nice clarity to its pale amber color. jovial white head rests on top, only slowly dying back. tartness and mildewy brett, its dank and funky and super weird, like a hay bale thats been wet too many times and starts to reek, this beer is the epitome of farmhouse. nose and flavor alike, its just a clever yeasty oddity, with some appreciable red malt underneath it all, testing caramel and irish red as a base. too dry for any of that though, and carbonated to high heaven. it comes furiously out of the tap and never chills out, but the maturity of the flavor profile more than compensates for the juvenile mouthfeel, and i mean that in the best way possible. as good as any of the firestone beers, their young but already highly acclaimed sour program is off to one heck of a fine start!
