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.

On-tap at Pizza Port OB.
Beer pours a very murky dark golden color with a half finger of white head that lasts quite awhile. The nose is pretty tart with a cherry smell as well as some strong vinegar notes and some funkyness. On the taste this beer is pretty tart and really puts out the vinegar flavors with some cherry sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation and flavors that cling to the mouth. I found this one to be extremely enjoyable, never heard of it before having it and I was surprised to see it rated as low as it is. I'd love to have some more of this one.

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).

On tap at URGE.

A: Dark orange with some transparency and a small white head.

S: Apricot is bright and it's accompanied by vinegar and a little acetone. There's some cherry and light oak notes. The nose has a sugary quality to it.

T: Tart up front with a light lactic sourness. Cherry blends with apricot, plum, and oak. There's a upper low acetic acidity and a little vinegar in the flavor. I get just a touch of acetone.

M: Lower medium body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: This was well done. Recommended.
