Batch 2016, 12.7 oz. Corked and caged. $13.99 at Arrow Wine. Poured into a stemmed tulip.

Aroma is more farmhouse than wild ale. Don't let the "hops" in the name mislead you or scare you away. There is a slight hoppy quality but this is no hop bomb.

A - Pours a slightly cloud brownish orange with a one-finger off-white head. 3.75

S - Funky barnyard quickly followed by mild lactic notes. Hard for me to find the flower petal aromas. 4.25

T - Lactic with the slightest bit of fruity sweetness. Some oaky bitterness in the finish. 3.75

MF - Light bodied, with a tart dry finish. 4

On tap at Bonds Tavern in West Orange. Pours a hazy, dark orange hue with moderate frothing. Tart, bitter aroma with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Not bad.

12/24/16....pours dark purplish brown, some reddishness, no foam at all. Oaky roasted nose. Faint. Barrel aged flavor, woodsy. Soft floral background. Quick bitter bite to close. Flower settles in, more so from the taste than the nose. Sawdusty mouthfeel, accelerated by sediment. Very low carbonation. Quite wet.
