this is excellent wild ale, my first from wicked weed. it has a cool pinking orange glow not unlike its label, and it holds an inch of white head pretty well. the nose has some great acidity to it, citric and clean, mouthwatering. they call this one a sour ipa, but i don't think its the best example of that. the hops are really aromatic and tasty, fruity and high alpha, but they are really subtle, and definitely take a back seat to the wild aspect of this beer, the brett and the tartness. an interesting candy-like flavor arises in the middle of this beer, almost like a watermelon or strawberry candy, not super sweet, but that odd artificial fruit thing. hops don't give much bitterness as the finish is really bright acidity and a bit of oak. good brett complexion and an extremely flavorful beer not missing anything. as an ipa, i don't love it because its not robustly hopped enough, but as a unique wild ale it is a great success. i like the fruity middle and the puckery finish. delicious offering from wicked weed here, with excellent carbonation and light medium body, something i could really drink a lot of. thanks to drlovemd87 for sharing this and several others last night.

Pours a hazy, copper color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of citrus, tartness, hint of alcohol, hint of hop, strong yeast, floral notes, and a hint of grass. Fits the style of an American Wild Ale. Mouth feel is tart, sharp, crisp, dry, and average carbonation level. Tastes of strong yeast, alcohol, slight citrus, hint of sweet malt, floral notes, and a hint of hop. Overall, weaker appearance, but great aroma, body, blend, and complexity.

@ Busy Bee

Cloudy reddish peach color with a fleeting foamy head that dissolves to nothing. Smells a bit funky with a buttery barrel quality, a flash of distinctive dry hop character, passion fruit, emerging lemon funk, and some floral notes. Fruity, dry oak barrel and tropical fruit flavors...lemon, some grain after swallow. Dry, not too sour, some lingering astringency, but not much. Though there is definitely a big tropical fruit presence, this never struck me as being particularly hoppy; nor did it strike me as all that sour or Brett-y. This rides somewhere in the middle, a nice blend of flavors that doesn't do any one thing amazingly well, but results in a nice beer.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains a bit before fading to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of bubbly surface foam. Non-resilient lacing slides quickly down the glass leaving a broken ring behind.

S- Aroma is comprised of mild Brett, lactic acid and soft, slightly citrusy hops. Never smelled anything like it before. Sweet, fruity. Light tinge of alcohol.

T- More fruit, a slight tartness...and not a whole lot else. All the elements seem to come together and, rather than giving a big burst of flavor, they just flatline. There are some notes of cherry, raspberry and lemon but it's all very toned down. The tartness overtakes whatever bitter hoppiness is there. Jammy, sweet.

M- Moderate pucker, a bit tangy with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Not bad but, as far as hoppy sours go, NB Le Terroir is way better. Yes, that's the only other beer of its kind that I have to compare it to, but I feel like this could have been better executed (especially given the steep price tag). But hey, Wicked Weed is still young, learning and trying new things so go ahead and decide for yourself rather than take my word for it. Also, it's worth noting that this could be a very good gateway beer for people unfamiliar with sours due to its accessibility and drinkability.
