3.48/5 rDev -23.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
A: Hazy yellow pour with a number of bubbles racing to the top of the beer. About a finger or two of white head sticks around for a good amount of time, and laces nicely.
S: It smells like sour tartness and not much else. Slight oaky and yeasty underneath.
T: Like the smell, I'm having difficulty describing the taste. It's basically just tart and sour with not much complexity. That's not to say I don't like it, I think it tastes very good, it just isn't much different than any American Wild Ale you could pick up off the shelf. The balance between tart and sweet is quite nice.
MF: Light and bubbly, the cork almost popped out of the bottle without any pulling. Very drinkable I would say.
O: For what this took to get I'm a bit disappointed. It just tasted a bit average for me. The aggressive sour is impressive, but the rest of the beer doesn't entirely back it up.
Serving type: bottle
