Thanks to ThirstyBird for the opportunity to try this one. 750ml bottle served in my Gouden Carolus chalice. Poured the color of straw with a skim of white foam around the edges; clarity was murky. Nose was sour apple, oak and ethanol at the back. Taste consistent with nose, but much more muted. Mouthfeel was light and effervescent with a dry finish. Easy drinking, but not much of a wild element per se. That being said, I really enjoyed this brew and am looking forward to try other offerings from this brewer.

Lots of apple forward. Fantastic balance no alcohol residual flavors whatsoever. Very crisp clean and refreshing.

A: straw yellow, very opaque. nice white head with a great retention rate. gorgeous lacing.

S: huge sours, sweet yet tart citrus, mostly lemons. some cotton candy.

T: not as much funk as expected. great slightly tart citrus. cotton candy, green apples, and light spices.

M: mild bodied. solid carbonation level. a lot of zip to this one.

A- Poured into a snifter... starts with a finger thick bone white head that disappears pretty quickly but leaves behind a nice trail of lacing. Beer is a cloudy light amber color

S- Interesting. Smells very much like champagne with a wild yeasty twist

T- Pretty dry. Pretty similar to the smell... starts out dry and champagney. Finishes with a hint of wild yeast sweetnees

M- Light body with light carbonation

D- I forget what I payed for this one, but I liked it alot... it was worth whatever I paid for it to me. The high abv is very hidden so be careful. To style, I would say it doesn't quite taste where it should be... but I'm not a fan of Belgian Strong Pale Ales but if they all tasted similar to this one I'd change my opinion... enjoy
