750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange. Medium white head.

Smell - Musty brett. White wine. Some toasty malt.

Taste - White wine is stronger here. Buttery and a bit of vinegar up front. Brett is strong, too. Toasty malt.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Moderate sourness.

Overall - Good, but doesn't blow me away like I expected from the reviews.

A - Pours a cloudy light brown-amber with a fine yellow-tan head that fades fairly fast.

S - Funky, oak, wine barrel, a little bit of apple and pear.

T - Tart apple, pear, oak, wine, very funky.

D - Good carbonation with a light body.

O - Fruity-wine and tart. A very solid Wild. SP keeps the hits coming.
