4/5  rDev +2.6%

Pours pale gold with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows wheat, wild yeast-driven lemon and elderflower. Some bready notes too.
Flavours include more of the bready character along with a nice gentle acidity and some lemon. Somewhat wheaty. Incredibly drinkable.
Carbonation could be a little higher.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

330ml bottle bought from The Vineyard, Belfast...

Poured a golden yellow colour with a slight haze. White head poured pretty loose and frothy then faded quickly to patchy covering with thick edging... no carbonation... some light lacing...

Aroma - Lots of lambic like sourness, bready yeast, sharp spicy fruits (light grapefruits, lemons, sour apples), musty barnyard / wet hay aromas, light vinegary notes, freshly cut wood, very light pale malts, some basil notes...

Taste - Lots of sour lemons and grapefruits, salty, light vinegar hints, sour (cooking) apples, yeasty, faint sweet after notes, grapes, light vanilla, floral, grassy, talcum powder, some woody notes, musty, strong champagne like hints...

Feel - Very sharp and dry... light body... pretty drinkable considering the tartness... thirst quenchingly good...

Overall - An excellent wild ale - one of the best UK examples i've tried... recommended...

Pours a golden straw hazy hue with a wispy two finger head and some nice lacing,the smell is very sourdough along with musty Brett and lime,the mouthfeel is light bodied,spritzy and well carbonated with tastes of sour wheat,musty Brett,lemons and limes and finished with a funky sourness and overall quite a nice first beer of the day and would drink again cheers.
