Poured a deep gold turned copper with a tight lacing of foam. Bubbles of mixed size and active carbonation give it a real wild ale look. Nice.
Aroma is bright yet subdued with hoppy goodness. Range includes a little fresh greenness with milder noble-type smells with enough holes to let an interesting grain mix through. Some pale and some richer munichy type smells and a somewhat confusing sensation of maybe even a little bit of toffee.
Taste is a surprising gamut of flavors. There's British-style breakfast malts with a gentle earthy texture and a slight sweetness from a fruity hop flavor that drops with a slight sour to a significant back-end bitterness with a very green and mouth drying finish.
This beer will certainly wipe the palate and requires (gulp) another sip (gulp) with some frequency. A welcome addition to the style. Thanks to Sarah for bringing the sample from back east.
