A glass at Accent Lounge - their DDC tap takeover, the next day.

This beer appears a hazy medium golden amber hue, with one thin finger of sparsely foamy off-white head, which leaves little in the way of lace in the vicinity of the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of sour, yet somehow tropical at the same time, fruit, a separate white vinegar character, a pale grainy maltiness, and tame earthy, leafy hops. The taste is zingy pale malt, reserved in its sourness, kind of morphing into a sourpuss candy thing, an attendant cherry and drupe acerbic supporting cast, and a slightly musty, earthy hoppiness.

The carbonation is on the low side, but still active, the body sporting a lean, lightweight profile, and a plain, innocuous smoothness. It finishes off-dry, the malt not kowtowing completely to the fruity sourness.

A nicely approachable wild ale, the fruit and souring notes well balanced, nobody in danger of losing tooth enamel with this one - but possibly some prejudices.
