3.9/5 rDev -4.9%
A-Pours a dark copper that has a subtle purpleness to it. A blanket of pretty white froth sits atop my next Firestone Walker experience. Lacing is speckle and random.
S-Not overly aromatic. When I really dig in, I get a clear sour component that is augmented by some maltiness that must be the base beer coming through. Some faceless sour fruit and some very light oak.
T-It's plenty sour. My main gripe would be that Agrestic Ale is sour without any specific flavor coming into the picture. I struggle to find flavors I can connect to besides the blatant sourness. I did pick up some oak. It's very tart with a whisper of sweet malt and maybe some generic sour fruity tones.
M-Light, airy and drinkable. A pint is enough for me though; all that wild yeast limits how much I can consume before I get dat bloat.
O-Flavorful but lacking depth. I'm nitpicking, though. The flavor was refreshing and tart and nothing beyond that.

4.35/5 rDev +6.1%
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 wild beer has a beautiful color and aroma to it. A different kind of spice going in on this, different but nice. The sour aspect was nice and not too overwhelming, good mouthfeel. Not Barrel Works best wild but seek this out definately. I wish this was bottled would be
