3.85/5  rDev -9.6%

Dark brown body sports a decent off-white head (3.6). Big lime and pineapple aroma (3.75). Very sour and tart flavor; heavy lime and green apple flavors abound (4.0). Medium bodied; dry and tart finish (4.0).

The tartness really gets the salivary glands rushing! Surprisingly good and tasty, especially, if you're like me, you don't know much about wild ales. The key lime really comes through. Perhaps not a style for everyone (it wouldn't be one of my go-to styles), but a pleasant change of pace from big dark ales and hopped up IPAs. Worth looking at if you're the adventurous sort of beer explorer...
