Poured almost a lifeless looking brew. Its always an uneasy proposition when you're handing out $$ for an unproven brewer's wild ale experiments. Sometimes you find a gem, but more often in my experience, is a dud.

This one lacked a whole lot in terms of a sour aroma. I couldn't discern much, it was frankly far too bland for a wild ale. There was a mild fruit impression, but whether it was cherry or not, maybe lemon (judging from the history of the geographical area, its a decent guess) I couldn't tell. Taste wise didn't clear anything up. Sadly lacking sourness, lacking tartness, lacking fruit forward esters in any way. Any brett isn't adding anything in terms of body. Its barely sour, and non descript beyond that. Pass.
