Deep murky gold with all sorts of big, ugly floaties, yet a beautifully thick, rocky head of lumpy foam. Smell is tart and dry, focusing on a funky floral aroma, backed up by a nice pale malt sweetness, straw, lime, and champagne-like notes. More pale malt upfront than expected, the tart, funky qualities fall back alongside a more typical Belgian yeast profile before kicking into gear with spicy fruit, lemon, and flowers. Smooth and textured - almost chewy, in fact, before drying out in the finish. Not quite as good as I remember the Primitive Wild series being, though the fantastic aroma is still the best part.

Incredible (4+ fingers) head that creates a lasting, frothy dome. Plenty of chunky and spotty lace. The liquid is golden with the faintest of hazes. Simply gorgeous.
Semi-sweet and semi-sour aroma with a good dollop of fresh stone fruit.
Starts like a pale ale but it becomes sour very quickly. There's enough sweetness to bring some balance. Lowly carbonated but still a thin body.
