Batch# 006

I am new to the variety, so before reviewing I compared to 3 other highly reviewed brews.

A: A short lived, single fingered, white head topped this cloudy, golden bodied brew. The head dissipates to a white ring leaving behind some lacing.

S: Sour notes of cherries, pomegranate, and lemon.

T: Lemon tartness, grassy, funkiness follows conceding to lighter, sweeter lemon flavors.

M: Medium light, silky, good carbonation.

O: My first Wild Ale, think this variety takes some getting used to.

Serving type: bottle
