750ml bottle with a date of 12/21/12 poured into a snifter. The brew appears a pale golden yellow color with a big white cap that fades back leaving patchy lace on the glass. A swirl effortlessly revives.

The aroma opens up a little awkward and not that desireable with notes of burnt plastic and strange phenolics. As it breaths, the plastic dissolves a bit and in its place is mostly a lemony lactic character.

The taste is tart and fruity like pear/apple and wheat with a kick of alcohol that feels mildly like perfume. The aroma showcased some real plastic off-character and thankfully that is mostly muted in the taste.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A unique wild that starts off harsh and grows on you as it breaths and opens up.
