3.53/5 rDev -12.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
On-tap at Publick House. 12oz serving into a chalice.
A- Slightly hazy yellowish golden with about a quarter finger of foamy white head that has minimal bubbles but nice retention that leaves spotty lacing. Not too much carbonation.
S- Slightly tart lemon with spices, some citrus hops, and a bit of earthiness. Not too tart and definitely more spices then your average wild. About average to slightly above average aroma strength.
T- Lightly tart lemon, spices, some light hops, finishes with a weird aftertaste that almost resembles a slightly tart Belgian Triple with a slight artificial almost plastic taste. I did not care for the finish on this beer at all.
M- Fairly light, pretty much no alcohol burn which makes it fairly easy to drink, the light tartness is felt more on the tongue with a tingling effect more then in the taste or smell.
O- I wasn't overly impressed with this beer. I guess being a wild from Allagash and being highly recommended from the bar tender I was expecting a lot more. To me the beer felt like a slightly lemony Triple that they tried to sour a little bit. There wasn't much tartness and the tartness that was there I felt just didn't fit in the beer very well. I probably wouldn't order this again, but I could maybe see how some people might like it.

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.
