4/5 rDev -0.7%
Thanks to womencantsail for sharing this one at GRG1313’s tasting.
Pours a murky orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, yeast, wood, and wine aromas. Taste is much the same with Brett-like and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some interesting aromas and flavors.

On-tap @ Bar Gernika Boise ID. Served in a chalice.
A: Hazy gold with practically no head.
S: Funky apricot, grassy, wheat and some grain, barnyard funk, some sourness, overripe fruit, pear, apple, pepper, earthy, and small suggestions of oak.
T: Light to medium sourness, moderate funk - barnyard, wet hay, white pepper, grassy, overripe fruitiness, green apple skin, pear, apricot, some malt/grain, light woody/earthy notes, hints of spice and bitterness from a buried hop profile.
MF: Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, some sour notes.
O: This is not a bad beer, works well as a Belgian inspired Golden Ale with wild yeasts. The Brett is there with some noticeable funk, but its quite manageable. Decent and enjoyable for something that is not right up my alley.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2012 bottle.
Appearance - Pushes the cork out once the cage comes off. Doesn't gush though. Big white head on an orange body. Decent retention. Slowly dissipates.
Smell - Lots of wine aroma. White wine. Slightly metallic aroma too. Bretty earthiness, but not a lot of acidity. Sweet malts.
Taste - Very sweet. Not really sour at all. No lacto presence. Lots of brett earthiness. Tons of caramel malt and that same metallic flavor lingers. Fairly bitter too.
Mouthfeel - Heavy and overly carbonated. Not sour at all.
Overall - The label touts all sorts of wild yeast and this just tastes like a bretty Belgian strong pale. Where's the sour?!

Served at the brewery. Appears a slightly cloudy orange/gold with a cm of white head. The nose has heavy Belgian spices, notes of clove, oak, and white grape. The taste is hop heavy with tons of herbal and earthy hops on top of a spicy Belgian pale base. Mouthfeel is light and bubbly. Overall, the hops really take center stage here. I was expecting a little more funk, but it was quite absent for a wild ale.

Pours an effervescent amber with 4 fingers of cream colored head. A little bit of haze to go with great head retention & nice lacing
S: Grassyness & sourness, pears, white pepper
T: Grassy, with green apple peels, grapefruit, a bit sour twang, some dirt & pears & some candi sugar up front. Pears, green appleskins, Granny Smith apple sourness, white& black pepper, a touch of grapefruit, oaky dryness, white grapes & honeysuckle as this warms, plus raspberry tartness . Finsihes with woody dryness, berry tartness, lemons & grapefruit, some sour notes that verge on the edge of funkyness, nice white pepper notes
MF: Medium bodied, lively carbonation, Charrdonay like dryness balances well with hops & fruittyness
Very drinkable, highly complex, probably not sour enough for some. I really enjoyed this. I bet this would go great with some Indian or even some sea food, loved it, a hoppy wild/sour with nice approachability with some wine-like traits
