On cask at Hay Merchant in Houston, TX.

A: Pours a beautiful golden hazed color. A perfectly formed dense, one finger white head rises. Rings of lace are left behind. This is a looker.
S: Hops and fruit up front that are amazing. Juicy citrus, mango, tart lemons. A light basement like funk. An incredible nose that does not hit you over the head, but subtle and balanced.
T: Hops are big up front again. Juicy mango, passion fruits. Acidic citrus flavors like orange and lemon, which then works perfect with the sourness that follows. A tart acidic punch, light wood, light basement like funk. The nuances just keep coming with every sip.
M/D: A light to medium body. Perfectly carbonated, especially for cask. Effervescent, crisp, and dry. The tartness and acidity pulls the cheeks in and makes you want to keep coming back for more. So refreshing and easy to drink.

This is immaculate. Juicy hops, light wood, substantial tartness. Everything works perfectly. Not to mention, the cask is in near perfect condition. I don't get any pumpkin or cacao. No bother, I think everything else involved overpowers that. As is a treat to drink, and I hope to find bottles if possible.

750ml, 8/1/11
Tired Hands wine glass

A: Hazy light orange color. Half finger of fluffy bright white head. Highly carbonated. Some good lacing sheeting. Some alcohol feet.

S: Mild funk. Getting white grape hints. Some of that spice, Belgian? Not pulling pumpkin or cocao. Like I have read, some smells similar to Orval.

T: Tip of the tongue, you get a sharp pit if tart character. Mid palate is smooth. Not getting pumpkin or cocao or anything, but it's a good sour. Well done. Getting some soft oak flavors. Dry finish. Always leaves me wanting another sip.

M: Medium bodied. Good carbonation.

Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a decent size white head of foam that settles to a thin collar, leaving very minimal lacing behind.

Aromas begin with a mix of herbal and bitter citrus hops. Then you get some spicy oak and Bretty powdery yeast.

The tastes begin with pilsnery grainy malt but then the herbal hops add a balancing quality. As it warms you get the house Jolly Pumpkin funk, hay-like mustiness and moderate white wine acidity.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finish is super dry and oaky with only minimal lingering sourness/tartness.

Overall this was a decent sour ale but more like an Orval light Bretty beer or a Brett induced IPA than a Wild ale with all the bells and whistles that are advertised. Maybe it was different fresh but I cannot imagine it was much different. I wish this had more of the "added" ingredient flavors or was more sour but right now it is just in the lower end of both.
