Tartar rouge "American wild red ale" 6.0% on tap at the brewpub in Healdsburg.

Deep amber with a decent head but minimal lacing.

Aroma. Floral and tart sour ale.

Moderately complex and tart; not significantly bitter. Very fruity with ripe soft fruits.

Feel: Medium body. Low but adequate carbonation.

O: quote nice and recommended, but not up with the Russian River Supplication from earlier today.

The beer comes in a light golden color.

The beer up front has refreshing apricot, pluot, and unripen stone fruit flavors. There's a light biscuity malt and candy sweetness in the middle. The tart quality leans towards apple cider vinegar.

A balanced tart brew.

On tap at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, fruit, and pickle juice flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an odd pickle juice taste that is unexpected.
