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

Received as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice crystal clear reddish tinged golden hue with a thin quarter inch head that fades to leave thin light wisps. Nice color!

S - Aromas of blackberry tartness, nice vinous notes, light sour blonde like aromas. Light, light wheat.

T - Taste is nice soft blackberries, grapes, light tartness. Solid mustiness, light oak and vanilla. The fruit is nice, like a fleeting taste of blackberry. Nice seedy aftertaste.

M - Mouthfeel is quite dry, not too lightly carbonated like some of the other Rivertown sour offerings I've had.

O - Overall this was a solid wild ale. Would prefer the blackberries being a bit more prominent, overall though this was a fine beer.

I found this to be a terrific beer... lots of sourness with just the right amount of blackberries to swing this over with a touch of sweetness...

Not overly sour or tart but there is definitely an ample amount so that there is no guessing about what they were trying to do here...

A very nice available beer that would be great on a sweltering summer night...

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

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!
