On tap and as far as I can tell this hasn't been added to BA yet.

A: Pours a murky rusty red with a decent amount of head. Very nice lacing.

S: Initially the oak comes across the nose which provides a very "soft" aroma. Along with the wood is a fairly assertive American hop scent which is charecteristically citrus but becomes honeydew melon-like when combined with the yeast and the oak.

T: The flavor profile is quite complex. There's certainly a hop presence which actually takes the forefront with citrus, a little pine, and noticeable bitterness. Then it fades to a lemon grass and melon like flavor, some funk, and just a touch of sour. I read that this beer comes across as a funky IPA and I find that to be pretty spot on. Only thing that I'm not keen on with the flavor is a sweetness that to me is not welcome but to some I'm sure it'd be just right.

M: Lingers on the tongue but is not too thick.

D: Surprising that this is 9.5% ABV. Pretty darn drinkable.

O: A great brew. I would definitely recommend it, especially if you like beers like Le Terroir.

A - Pours a deep red-tinged brown with one finger of head. Head dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing.

S - a funky sourness in top of a huge citrus aroma.

T - very hoppy for a wild ale. Initial tart punch is quickly overtaken by a huge citrus hop character. Almost like a sour black IPA. Still pretty enjoyable. Finish is very oaky. Not like any wild ale I've ever had, but interesting and quite good. Finish also has some lingering citrus.

M - medium/light mouthfeel with a dry, tannin- filled finish.

O - interesting take on the style. I think a bit less oak would make this better, but I enjoyed it as is and would have another. (637 characters)

750ml bottle. Pours a reddish amber with no carbonation. :(

The aroma is earthy brett and fruits with some wood and tea-like spices.

The flavor is sweet fruits and funky brett with a little tart sourness and someastringent tea spicing. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with no carbonation.

Overall, bottles are known to be hit or miss in terms of carbonation - unfortunately this one was a miss. This is amazing when it's good. Draft version is great. Odell did a voluntary recall of bottles, but I kept my 2 becuase I liked the beer. (543 characters)

T: Starts malty sweet with traces of fruit with some balancing tart and hop.
F: Medium body, soft carbonation.
O: this is a decent wild ale but not their best work. (299 characters)

I love sours and wilds. I was extremely excited to try this beer after standing in line for a bit to get it.

Light funk on the nose smelling of unsugared fresh yogurt and light fruits. Yep, its a sour! It surely carries through to the taste. No alcohol presence with light sweetness followed by a mild acidic sour bite all over the palate and puckering tongue. As a sour lover I was not dissapointed by this beer. It wasn't as much of a mouth puckering kick in the face as I like but it's a great example of a sour. (517 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Deep amber/brownish color; half-finger head with considerable retention and lacing.

S - Fruity/citrus/oak combination. Rather sharp. And lovely.

T - Some bitterness on the front end. Finishes nicely. Decent hop edge with a tad bit of sourness. The surprise was pineapple which adds a nice touch of sweetness and complexity, along with the oak which is more prominent. The alcohol comes through just a bit and mixes in well.

M - Medium, edging toward full, body with just the right amount of carbonation.

O - I tried this beer when it was first released, about four months ago. Didn't make a huge impression. Just tried it again a few times over the past month and it has obviously aged very well. Fantastic. (719 characters)
