3.53/5 rDev -12.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
2011 bottle poured into an Allagash tulip.
A: Pours a bright golden orange color with a small head that dissipates quickly, and leaves a bit of lacing on the glass.
S: Smells hoppy and mildly citrusy like green apple and a tiny bit of spice.
T: Taste is very similar to the smell. Very hoppy with green apple citrus and a bit of spice. Not as funky as described in other reviews, yet still has a tart character about it that is refreshing.
M: Medium body with very little carbonation.
O: Overall, happy to have tried it. It definitely was refreshing but not really my style of wild ale. Also just wasn't tart or funky enough for my taste.

This beer is between gold and straw in color, with a haze similar to a hefeweizen. The aroma is a tropical fruit and peppery spice. There is a passion fruit flavor with a subtle brett flavor of old socks (but old socks that taste good). I have definitely had several beers where the brett is a little overpowering, but this beer had a nice blend of fruity notes from the yeast and sweetness from the malt that works well with the brett. I really enjoyed it because all the flavors work really well together.

The beer pours a very strong and foamy clean white head. The head lasts a while and the lacing on the glass form a perfect ring around the inside of the glass. The beer itself is a clear yellowish copper. The beer smell is fairly complex with a hint of tartiness. The smell has bits of a bread smell from the malts. The tarty Brett smell is there as well and is slightly obscured by the white wine smell as well as the hops. The hops are fairly close to a slightly grassy smell and orangey smell. The white grapes smell makes it difficult to properly distinguish. The beer taste is different from the smell. The beer taste is primarily hops mixed with the Brett. The malts make an appearance as a backbone for the taste and balances out the hops and Brett. In addition to the hops, the beer also has a white wine taste to it with hints of citrus orange. The feels is fairly clean and goes down similar to water. The finish is fairly dry. Overall, a pretty good beer and one that I might get again.
