Consumed 8-13-13, whole bottle minus yeast poured into a HF glass. Reviewed from notes.

A- Pours black with a lingering 1 inch head. Noticeable carbonation bubbles rising to the top. The head falls over a minute leaving a thin layer of mocha head with decent retention. Looks like it has good clarity, but the color makes it difficult to tell.

S- Brett, lactic acid. There is a sourness off the bat that reminds me of a flanders red. It presents with cherries, lemon and oranges intertwined, although cherries are the standout. A touch of vinegar as well. There is a phenolic note on the end, although it works well with the rest of the flavors. A touch of chocolate as well, but very subtle.

T- Cherry, raspberry, some coffee and chocolate too. Lemon-zest acidity. A touch of bitterness on the end.

M- Wow, this thing is dry. I feel like I just chewed on a chunk of chalk. Medium to high carbonation. Very drinkable on the get-go, but the insanely dry finish leaves you walking around shouting for water.

O- This stuff is awesome as is, no aging needed. Tons of fruit flavor, and very little phenolics. Definitely another hit from Hill Farmstead. Their wilds and saisons continue to blow me away one after the other.
