Shared with a large group of individuals during a gaming night. This was the first brew of the evening and by far the one with the most character... in a bad way.

A- Looked fine. Nothing special to note either way.
S- OOOHHHH MAN! Seriously, this is one pungent brew. It smelled sort of like concentrated rotten lemons. The citrus was beyond overpowering and when combined with some of the other ingredients, it smelled extremely musty. We found the smell comical and made everyone smell the contents. Suffice to say, each reaction was priceless.
T- Overpoweringly citrus.
M- Nothing special to note here.
O- This beer could double as a gag gift and it is worth the cost just to watch your buddy's faces crumble as they smell it.

Sun golden yellow in appearance with a slight orange hue about it.

Whoa!!!! This brew smells funky! There is no doubt in my mind at this point this is a wild ale. Explosive malt sweetness to the extreme.

Definitely not for me, very sour and dry. No hop presence whatsoever and that's what I'm into. I enjoyed this beer until I tasted it.

Mouthfeel is dry and sour.

Overall, wasn't expecting to be thrilled as I'm not a huge wild ale fan to begin with, but this is definitely not for me. Not awful, just not my cup of tea.

Pours a light golden-orange with a hazy clarity. Head is loose and white and dissipates into a consistent slick. Nose expresses a hint of brett and tangerines. Taste consistent with nose with a nice balance between the brett, citrus and light malt profile. Mouthfeel is light-medium (but closer to light) in body with a lively carbonation and some astringency. Overall, I'd classify this as more of a brett saison than an American Wild; however, regardless of style, it's quite good.
