Poured from a bottle conditioned, 750 ml bottle into a goblet glass. 2014 vintage

Pours a golden amber color with an eggshell white head that dissipates rather quickly. Very little visible lacing around the glass as I sip. The color alms or reminds me of apple juice to be honest. It's quite exquisite!

Smells of sour pears, apples, and peaches. Lacto is very prevalent on the nose with no malt or hop profile detected.

Tastes very tart as it costs the tongue. Lacto is present. Although very sour, the beer finishes a bit sweet, particularly when licking your lips minutes after swallowing. Some oaky finish is present as well upon swallowing.

Mouthfeel is awesome. Puckering initially l, but then mellows out upon swallowing, bringing out the oaky flavor from the barrel aging. Although this beer is well carbonated, it doesn't have an overly harshness on the tongue. The pleasant prickliness is welcoming with each sip.

One of the best sour beers I may have ever had. Very well balanced with a mouthfeel that leaves you yearning for another sip. I think this beer would benefit from aging, it's pretty fantastic as it is upon release. I would definitely seek this one out of you are a sour beer fan. You will not be disappointed!

Cheers!

4.09/5  rDev -1%

750 ml bottle. 2013 printed on the label. Served in a Cantillon Iris glass

Appearance: Pours a bright gold color with less than a finger of white soapy head that dissipates to a thin collar and some wispy foam coating. Body is clear with moderate amounts of visible carbonation.

Smell: Surprising amount of funk, hay, pineapple, green apple, some grassy/herbal quality and a bit of oak.

Taste: Lemon, barnyard funkiness, green apple, lacto, oak. There's a very noticeable herbal quality, which is somewhat weird, but ends up working well.

Mouthfeel: Light medium bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium. Finishes dry.

Overall: Pretty good american wild ale. While I wouldn't mistake it for one, it has some gueuze-like qualities. Worth picking up if you see it.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Good give off the cork with a big pop.

Deep peach orange body, roaring middle column of carbonation in the middle of the body, with side white small pinhead bubbles cascading the sides of the glass. Head is soapy and off white in color, but with lots of snapping carbonation and little retention, but manages to settle slowly, and stick with a good half finger puck. Real good looking brew.

Aroma is like classic white grape, slightly sweet. Big dry powdery wood notes, almost like sawdust. Fruit angle somewhere around faint sour lemon and big oily zest. Not much hint of barrel aging character from the bouquet so far, but a solid nose.

Palate has lots of tang. Big notes of lemon and citrus juice. Big zesty and oily coating tangy finish, with a hint of wet juiced body, and much toned down dryness. Big zesty notes on this, with oily bitter finish. Comes off with just a real balanced sweetness on the finish as well to match the sour tang. Minimal pucker, with a good simple malt depth. Moderate carbonation with just a bit of mouth play, and lip coating fruity oils.

It doesn't hint at thick round character, but the barrels (yeast?) really made the fruit and lemon notes just burst alive. Real good take on a wild ale brew.
