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.

P: A cloudy pale golden body with loads of speckled floaters dangling at the bottom giving off effervescent magic. Topped with a creamy froth of rocky white glory.

S: Sweet fruits, mango, papaya, pineapple, tart cherries, soft packing foam, funky old pawn shop aroma, pond water, slight booze presence and berry wheat bread.

T/M: Harsh grainy spice hits the back of the throat instantly. First drink is like a mouth full of dirt. Dirty barnyard flavor, cinnamon, pepper, chalky yeast, strong tea tannins and grapefruit. Fruit flavors come out more once warm and the dirt profile drops off a tad. Finishes dry with a filmy coating similar to eating sharp cheddar. The aftertaste reminds me if cajun style boiled peanuts.

O: I love the funky barnyard addition to the hearty spice bill. This is a sure sipper that packs a punch. The ABV snuck up on me quick due to not being present in the taste. All in all a great brew.

Light orange, lots of yeasties floating around. Thick head leaves some lacing. Aroma is funky: very sour-fruity (raspberries, grapes, lemon) with some straw/hay. Strong carbonation in the mouth. Sour but not overly so; lots of grapefruit, oranges, raspberries, fruity flavors in general. Extremely dry finish with a pleasant bitterness to finish things off. Really incredible beer.
