Bottle graciously opened by me and shared with Mego and Ross. Thanks me!
A- Clear light amber with thin white lacing. (bottle has been upright and undisturbed for over a year)
S- Oaky/bretty funk. A little bit of white grapey effervescence and lemon. Pretty mild but interesting
T- Similar to smell. great balance between lactic sourness and bretty funk which is impressive. Not as complex as a great geuze, but cant find any flaws with the taste. Its just really balanced and refreshing. The more i drank, the more i wanted. As good as american wilds get
M- Spritzy carb combined with a balance of sweet fruits and drying wood keep you wanting to drink more.
Overall- Awesome. I wasnt immediately blown away, but the more I drank , the more I was able to appreciate the amazing subtleties of this beer. Its ranked highly for a reason

Opened last night with friends along side some other outstanding beers but this one was the high point of the night for me.
Bottle opened with a nice pop, very well carbed. Poured a golden color with a small white head ( was a fairly small pour so it didn't kick up to much foam). The smell was acidic with definite funky cheese notes. The taste was sour and surprisingly bright for a 5 year old American Wild Ale. The mouthfeel was light and well carbonated. Overall this was tied with beat b3 for the best beer of the night. Beat out cable car 2012 DDG b1 and b2. The Russian rivers beat out lost abbey the whole night.
