Batch 2. The brew pours a hazy yellow hue and is topped with some wispy bubbles; just enough head to demonstrate liveliness. The nose is, whew, musky and hugely atomized. It is getting into my sinuses like Vernors ginger ale does (strange observation, I know...) Anyhow, the aroma is musky and lemon-zesty and just very pert all-around. The taste is just absolutely fantastic; it is the sourest a thing can be without crossing the line into a flagrant level. Notes of lemon, green apple, wet wood, overripe peaches (or maybe underripe?), wet dog, Warhead candy and a small amount of tart white grape reveal tremendous complexity within the sourness. The feel is pert for the most part, but it has an amazingly clean finish. Having had Batch 2 and 3, I must say I prefer 2. It is far more sour, disparately flavored and heavily nuanced; whereas I recollect 3 to be far more harmonious, juicy and less tart. Overall, one of the better American Wilds I've ever had.

Unexpected gift from a friend in California. Bottle dated 9/11/13, a little over 10 months old.
Pours with very little head. Hazy, light yellow in color. Smells fresh and tart. Fruity, flowery, and hints of vanilla. Wow, this is sour. What I get after that initial pucker is fresh citrus, earthiness, and a smooth vanilla oak aftertaste. This is one of the most flavorful beers I've ever had. The mouthfeel is light and bubbly. The natural fermentation yields a perfect feel. Overall I'm really impressed with this beer and I'm not a huge fan of sours. This is one of the best I've ever had.
