Had the opportunity to buy this a few weeks ago. It's brewed by sierra nevada and russian river. Let me first start by saying the only way to have this beer is if it has been aged. The guy at the store told me they saved about 30 bottles in the back and let the age for 2 years. This beer had a very complex taste with a sort of "funky" smell to it. I've never had an American Wild Ale before so I don't really know how to compare it to other beers. It's definitely one of the most interesting tasting beers i've ever had. I think most people who review this beer have never let it age, because this is a beer mean to sit around for a while!

Aged for nearly two years, finally decided to uncork this bottle and try this collaboration between Russian River/Sierra Nevada.

Poured from bottle to glass, you can tell the beer has a really nice golden color with hints of orange. It's also just a bit cloudy. The beer is highly carbonated which helps open up the palette once it hits your mouth. There's a really light white head that is nice.

The beer displays some tart notes but it is crisp. There are hints of lemon and other zesty elements. It's a nice sour. Not the best I've ever had but I enjoyed it!
