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
