look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On tap at Surly Goat.

Clear golden amber colour with a small white head. Fair lacing and head retention.

Big oak and acid aroma. Tons of coconut and vanilla with a nice acid that works. Some grape notes.

As with the aroma this is a big combo of oak and sour. Fruity esters add interest and are a nice foil for the oak which dominates. Lots of coconut and grape. Acid is plentiful but balanced.

Medium body with moderately-high carbonation. Good.

A really solid beer. Tasty and fun. It seems a touch high on the oak but I still like it.

From 02/27/14 notes. Had on tap at Beer Authority in NYC after their BR event. 14 oz. pour in a stange type glass.

a - Pours a deep reddish color with one inch of off white head and high carbonation evident.

s - Smells sour dark fruits, vinegar, raspberries, sour cherries, oak, light funk, citrus, and earthy notes. Light floral hops. Awesome smell, smells very sour and lots of dark fruits.

t - Tastes of sweet and sour cherries and other dark fruits, citrus hops, oak, light vinegar, earthy notes, grapefruit, fruity malts. Taste is good but less sour than the nose; little bit sweeter.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Lightly acedic but not too much.

o - Overall a really nice wild ale from BR. Not the sourest taste is the world but that is fine, it smells great and tastes very good. Worth checking out.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a light copper with a small light white head.

S: Tart lemon, funky Belgian yeast and wheat in the nose.

T: Tart lemon again, maybe some orange, citrus rind, funky Belgian yeast.

M: Medium bodied with medium smoothness.

O: Pretty good, not the best wild ale out there, but worth a try if you can find it (I'm assuming it's tap-only, brewery-only).

Served in a glass at the 4th Cellar Party at Bear Republic brewery. Bubba himself poured it. From notes. Reviewed 30 September 2012.

A: No head, light lacing, clear gold.

S: Sour Belgian-wild yeast. It reminds me of an Oud Bruin. Tart, fruity, vinegary, and engaging.

T: Puckery! Fruity. Reminiscent of Lost Abbey Red Poppy. Balsamic raspberries and bright lemon juice. The finish is Brett-funky.

M: Interesting and forceful! It has presence.

O: Great beer; very nice. Highly recommended. A delicious barrel-aged sour.
