Got a 25.4 oz bottle for 14$
Poured with carbination stuck to the inside of the glass. About a 1/2 white head dissipating , left a nice slow dripping lace. Color is a slightly hazy golden, if you look into the bottom of the glass it has slight cherry hue.
Not much to smell, light fruit and what I call the lambic must. Light citrus/blueberry?
Taste is the fruit lambic sour, Rivertown has a wonder tasting Lambic! Great dry finish .
Mouthfeel is full then the flavors kicks in finishes sour and dry.
Overall, I am not sure why this is called an American wild ale, my pallet screams Lambic!
And a damn good one at that! Sour lovers unite!

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Stone Cali glass.
A - pours an opaque rosey red with SanDiego orange sunset edges. A small off white head builds and falls to just a frothing ring quickly.
S - yummm!! Vinous, bright and fruity with pie cherry and berry notes. Earthly. Slightly horse blanket.
T - lots of the some. A nice berry flavor is present. Its a little hard to call it out as blackberry with the sour notes, but its there. Cherry pie. Funk. Brett.
M - just a tad more than I was expecting but still dry.
D - very easy to drink.
Overall, a fantastic beer I can only get more excited about with age. Tart, fruity, funky. Props to Rivertown for another fantastic sour.
