Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Bullfrog Le Roar Grrrz glass. Acquired in a trade with Brian. Thanks man!

Pours a hazy amber body with a two finger white head that reduces to leave a ring of foam and spotty lacing.

Aromas are thick and inviting, there's a lot going on here. Predominately citrusy-funk, giving way to a mustyness, white grapes, oak, pepper, fruit skins.

On the tongue is a lightly tart citrus funk, musty basement, lots and lots of oak, champagne, white wine, bright fruits, finishes with a crisp, dry wine/champagne like astringency. Medium-light body, not very carbonated at all. Would have preferred a little more carbonation.

Overall a very, very solid Wild. This would definitely hold it's own against some Belgian gueuzes. Complex, balanced.

Very nice malt beverage. No off flavours. Thanks Mike Herman. Very smooth drinkable. Not so much a geuze as a lovely malt liquor. Very decent drinking and malt liquor.

Consumed 5/1/16

A: Medium orange-honey with some golden highlights - hazy - pours with a medium sized, white head, fades to a wispy cap, leaves some spots of lacing

S: Not explosively potent in the nose, but funky and lightly sour - light acidity, lightly damp and musty - nice oak aroma, with some barrel funk, without being too woody - some light fruits, green apple - soft, clean pale malts, light bread

T: Smooth and funky - some sourness, but not particularly sharp - some lemon acidity and some damp, lactic funk - very funky, with some musty, damp cellar, and old oak - chewy wood - additional funk that is decidedly reminiscent of sharp cheddar - lemon acidity and tartness - some light fruits - some soft, pale malts at the base - lightly bready

M: Really interesting, as this is simultaneously very smooth and also sharp - nicely tart - on the low side of medium, low carbonation

O: More like Purrrz

This is unique. The sourness and funk are quite nice, and there is a lot of complexity. We were really at Bullfrog at the right time, as this is not the easiest beer to track down.
