Appearance: Pours a dark golden color with a slight haze. The huge, rocky, white head forced
me to take several attempts to finish pouring the beer in my glass. A decent amount of lacing
was left behind on the glass.

Aroma: Loads of berries! Blueberries, raspberries, grapes, cherries, and strawberries all make
an appearance. A touch of breadiness is also in the background.

Taste: Big fruity sweetness all the way down. As you continue to drink it, a bit of tartness
slowly grows on the tongue.

Palate: Body is leaning towards the heavier side of medium, and the carbonation level was low.
Aftertaste reminded me of Welch's grape juice.

Overall: A bit unexpected, but it was a good beer. I'd be interested in what would come from
letting this beer sit for some time behind the bar in my basement.

Very vinegar, acetic aroma. Touch of musty horse blanket, with a floral note. Flavor reveals a sweet, slightly toffee backbone, which is surprising, and a lightly lactic sourness. That sweet character is really unexpected. The finish is fairly bitter and dry.

When I saw that this was a Flemish wild ale, I expected some sour. However, the fact that there wasn't much was well offset by the other very strong characters present. On my own, I don't identify profiles like "barnyard" or "straw," but those are admittedly exactly how this beer starts. The yeast combo gives both the banana and stone fruit. There is a touch of hop in the finish. Overall a solid brew, with the emphasis on the wild, not the "flemish."

Big earthy, barn yard feel to this wild ale. Very little sour power, but big fruit characters. A slight spicy feel in the back of your throat. Tasty wild ale, but I wanted more mouth puckering flavor and mouthfeel.

Some of the fruit notes are bananas, very slight mango character. The smell was the best part of this sour..
