[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a lightly cloudy golden color with an average (1-2 finger) white sudsy head that reduced slowly, down to a thin film with a large collar and possessed excellent sheets of sticky lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt and a musty Belgian yeast with a note of citrus (lemon), a slight fruity ester (apples and pears), a hint of cask and a mild vinous scent.
The taste was sweetly tart and a tad acetic with some bold fruity overtones from the get go, becoming rather yeasty and a bit sour with a winey cider taste and a light bitter citrus appeal at the end. The flavor lasted and average time after consumption with a slight fruity vinegary taste left behind.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a thin dry texture and a rather prickly carbonation.
Overall this is a fantastic Wild Ale with a ton of sweet-sour flavor along with the perfect influx of fruit, which did a good job of hiding the semi-high ABV...
