Hazy orange body with a quarter inch of off-white. Aromas of stone fruit, funk, awesome sourness, melon, pedio. Unfortunately, the flavor does not live up to the promise of the aroma. Overly sweet and harsh. Fruity, with notes of kiwi and oak tannins. Needs work. Lovely aroma, by far the best aspect of the beer, but lacking the overall qualities of a superb American wild ale.
