3.18/5 rDev -13.6%
On tap poured into a snifter at The Bistro, reviewed from notes. Beer pours a golden orange with a thin film of a off white collar. Minimal lacing that quickly slid right back into the glass. Not much carbonation visible, a bubble floating up every now and then.
Nose is heavy on brett funk, but it dominates too much. Very funky, wet horse blanket is appropriate for this. Beyond the funk, some very minor stone fruit and lemon with a little oak tannin, but then you get more brett funk to remind you it's there.
Taste is pretty one dimensional, lactic sourness, with some slight plum sweetness on the way down.
Light body with little to no carbonation. A case where maybe there was a little too much brett character in a beer.

On tap at the brewpub – Healdsburg, CA
06/12/14 – From a 4oz taster
A: Dark golden amber with some auburn hues and a real pure clarity to it. A thin film of meek khaki froth forms over and is short-lived with only a few light etchings of lace left to the glass. As expected for a barrel aged wild ale with a surprising conditioned quality to it.
S: Smells very floral like lavender blossoms with a touch of dark soured fruits and some mild vinegar qualities. The nose has a big honey like sweetness that was a little unexpected. Not bad but a bit sweet and fruit forwardSeems like some nice local ingredients have been incorporated here
T: Mixed dark berries give a light to mild amount of tartness to the brew along with some apple cider vinegar and lemon. Flavors segue into a big floral honey like sweetness. This is so much like a mead in some ways. There is little to no perceived bitterness with some and the alcohol is kept really well hidden throughout. I get some some woodsy oak tannins and a dusty mineral character towards the finish. Detecting a miniscule amount of acetone there too but it is not enough to be reproachful. Interesting brew and fairly unique.
M: The mouth feel is medium to light and a bit watered down. There is mellow amount of tart pucker to it with a touch of drying at the finish. Clean retreat but lands mostly on the watery thin side.
D: This was an okay wild and nice to try but far from being a favorite. There is a lot of berry tartness and florals but not much funk at all with a massive amount of honey like sweetness. A lot of components to this one, some nicer than others, but just didn’t wow me in the end.

On-tap at Churchill's
A: The beer pours a hazy golden amber color with a small white head.
S: The nose features a Mild vinegar note as well as a distinct Cheerios character. There is some wet oak and grass as well as the ever popular straw/hay. A little booze and a mild malt sweetness.
T: The flavor starts out with a slight sweetness followed by plenty of grass, green apple, and lemon zest. As with the aroma, some vinegar is present, as is the cereal sweetness and flavor of Cheerios.
M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation.
O: While not atrocious, this was not very good by any means.
