- Spontaneously fermenting yeast + pale + sour beer.

A: Pale straw pour with a pristine clarity reveals a softly rising mist of carbonation. Snow white capping is micro-bubbly on the surface, of a decent a size, but is quick to dissipate with a low appeal of lacing.

S: Sour orange and lemon, light sense with a hint of sweet malt and straw.

T: Crisp flavor is sharp of a light lemony sourness, wheat and sour fruit. Green apple with a touch of cinnamon spice. Lightly tart, some lime, white grapes with some slightly sour citrusy hops.

M: Bubbly champagne like carbonation is very sharp in crispness. A bit acidic.

O: Drinks like a crisp white wine, good pairing with fish. Lightly sour, easy drinking wine substitute.

On-tap 8/3/2014 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI served in a snifter glass.

A: The beer is a deep yellow color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains wild Belgian yeast, burnt malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out with a mildly sour bite. Then an odd malt character breadiness pokes in. The malt character is thin but seems burnt and throws everything off. Once the odd flavors fades a bit there’s a good balance. The after-taste is slightly tart.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, this is just a mediocre beer at best.

A: Pours an extremely cloudy straw yellow in color with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the surface of the beer and a hint of lemon yellow highlights. The beer has an eighth of the finger tall fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a small to medium sized patch of extremely thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sourness/tartness and funky barnyard over the top of lighter aromas of pale malts. Light aromas of lemon citrus as well.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of pale malts and wheat. That is followed by moderate flavors of sourness/tartness and a moderate flavor of lemon citrus. Light flavors of funky barnyard/wet hay towards the finish. Overall there is a moderate amount of sourness/tartness to this brew.

M: Light to medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Moderate amounts of acidic prickliness.

O: Easy to drink and enjoyable. Moderate amounts of sourness/tartness and just a light amount of funkiness. Definitely one I would grab again if I came across it.
