I enjoyed this beer way more than I should've. The brett it was fermented with was nice a clean and made for an interesting, easy drinking beer.

The beer has a great gold color. It has a great smell of funk, grass, and some bright citrus. The taste is where it all falls apart, its a decent beer, but the aroma made you think that your going to get a great sour beer, but all you get is a minerally, slightly hoppy ale. Overall it had potential based on its aroma, but the taste is a big fall off.

A: This poured a clear gold with rocky white head.
S: It smelled like grassy hops and tart unripe apricot, with some dry white grapes and minerals.
T: It tasted like tart pears and apricots, with some grassy hops and minerals. It had a clean sweet tart aftertaste.
M: It was oily with lots of fine natural carbonation. Nice slick body.
D: This was a decent wild ale, but it wasn't bursting with flavor or highly complex. It was a minor twist on the usual Ommegang brew, with mediocre scent and taste. The body was great, the finish was fairly smooth, and the alcohol was well hidden. So it was pretty easy to drink for a sour. Age may help, but there are so many other sours that are better to cellar.
