look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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.
