Poured with a murky peach body the head was appropriately wild with a champagne like bubbling.
The aroma holds some earthy gourd, buttery toffee, malt and apricot scents.
The flavors hold suit with a dull earthy gourd, toffee, lemon, peppercorn and dry malt taste.
The feel is very bubbly, like a champagne, with a fullness that isn't too sharp or prickly.
This is a very good wild just a touch less impressive than Batch#1, in my opinion.

Ok, so Blend 1 was a bit off, but I really didn't have a problem with this one at all. I followed B1 directly with B2, decanting into a CS tulip. Similar in appearance to its counterpart, a golden-amber color with a thin white head; moderate lacing and retention. Aroma of toasted cereal grains, slightly sour, peach and apple cider, wood and herbs. Light. Flavor was nearly back on par to where this beer should be, with a sweet cereal grain base, a mild tartness coming in quickly, with flavors of peach, white grape, apple skin, herbal tea, dry oak. Light-medium body, crisp and prickly mouthfeel, overall a nice brew.
