Pours a clear, dark copper/brown color. 3/4 inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of alcohol, oak, sweet malt, hint of hops, yeast, slight citrus, and sourness. Fits the style of an American Wild Ale. Mouth feel is sour, sharp, and crisp with a high carbonation level. Tastes of yeast, hint of hops, oak, slight citrus, sweet malt, hint of liquor, hint of alcohol, and sourness. Overall, great appearance, aroma, body, and blend. The complexity it vast, but the carbonation level is too high.
