4.05/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a cloudy orangey yellow with a light fluffy white head, very good looking beer

S: Has a delicious sour and brett smell, it literally made my mouth start to water when I first smelled it, perhaps the perfect aroma for a wild ale

T: Taste isn't exactly what I had hoped for after the incredible smell, but it's still pretty solid; it's both sour and bretty, but it's also a little on the spicy side, perhaps characteristics of the base beer that I'm not familar with? The wheat beer/orange peel/coriander taste is still very prominent

M: I love the mouthfeel on this beer, it's got fantastic carbonation and both tingles and coats your mouth; finish is dry, as to be expected with such a beer

O: Everything about this beer is top-notch except for the taste, unfortunately. Too much of the wheat beer characteristics come out, and the flavors indicate that this wouldn't be my favorite wheat beer on its own. If those flavors were a little more subtle, I think this would make a fantastic beer, but it comes up a little short as is.

3.26/5  rDev -20.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

This is a typical American sour. Straw-colored and clear. Carbonated but very little head retention. My biggest gripe about the beer is that it is similar to so many American sours -- it's over the top SOUR - way too sour. No balance like a oude gueuze (which I wouldn't expect) but not even similar to a jung lambik. Just way too off the charts with acidity. Strong acetic acidness.

4.54/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Great looking bright gold body with a fine white head. Head pours 1/2 a finger high with ok retention and poor lace.

S - Bright, astringently sour nose. Huge sweet-tart candy character, strong ginger, lemon, and a touch of crisp tart peaches.

T - Aggressively sour, spot on for an American Wild. Bold kaffir lime sets the stage for lemon, hay, bay leaves, bright oaky wood, apricot, and an edge of tart and chalky smarties.

M - Medium-full, surprisingly full for the style, with a smooth body.

O - A great, complex American Wild: the right balance of sour, sweet, and oak on a silky frame.
