3.5/5  rDev +5.1%

Appearance: Orange-yellow. Clear. Thick, foamy head. Nice, sticky lacing.
Smell: not much there.
Taste: light malt. Light sourness....very well balanced. Cannot differentiate between lactic and acetic acid. Mild fruit characteristics.
Mouthfeel: medium-high carbonation. Medium body. On the sweet side, but not overly sweet.
Overall: decent sour. Very mild. Has some funky fruity taste. Also has a bit of hop bitterness at the end. I like it. Don't love it.

Clear amber yellow color with a thin head with low retention.
Nice aroma for the style and quite mutating. Notes of sweet peach, lemon, horse mantle and tangerines.
Sour and sweet flavor with funky notes of horse mantle, sweet malt, pears and apple cider. Dry and acid aftertaste.
Interesting sour, malt is still quite present, balancing on a sweet and sour state. Good bridge, sour heads may hate it and beginners may love it.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A - Golden pour with a thin foam head that settles fast. Very slight lacing noted.

S - Sour smell and scent of light fruits. Some grape and pear notes are present.

T - Seems to be a bit all over the place. The wild yeast gives this a tartness and plenty of sour notes. But I found the sweetness of fruit sugars put this beer into an area that it wasn't good at any one thing. The complexity did not improve this beer.

M - Nothing special, and I'd argue the balance is not there because of the introdcution of fruit sugars to this wild ale.

O - I'd venture that this should not be what one uses as a guide for the wild ale style. And for those who enjoy light fruit flavors, there are so many better options. Perhaps interesting, but I'd pass on this.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a lightly hazy light to medium golden yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall fizzy white head that slowly reduces to a thin film that covers the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass.

S: Light amounts of sourness with some light fruits (pear) and hints of persimmon.

T: There is a light amount of upfront sourness with a little more sweetness from the persimmon in the finish.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Moderate amounts of acidic prickliness.

O: I found this beer pretty easy to drink, approachable, and enjoyable. The addition of the persimmon makes this beer have a nice balance between the sweetness and sourness.
