In a snifter this beer was a bright copper color. It had a very thick white head, which dissipated fairly quickly. There was no lace.

The aroma was fresh, outdoors, and grassy. There was a little bit of citrus noted.

Grassy hops taste, a little lemon. Hint of mild spice.

Light and easy drinking.

A - poured a bronze golden color

S - great smell, but honestly nothing way above average for its style

T - a slight bubble gum flavor but not overpowering, very sweet, light and smooth

M - very carbonated/gassy feel

O - very balanced beer and one of the better golden ales i've had. would really be curious to see how this ages.

My second "wild" ale (first being a Stone) I was expecting big things from a Russian River/Sierra Nevada collaboration. I was pretty disappointed.

A-golden straw color, huge white head with no lacing

S- light fruity smell, very decent nose. Definitely smell the Brett

T- this was a let down. Expected a much bigger flavor. The "domesticated" in the title doesn't even do it justice. Too tame IMHO.

Not a terrible beer, I think the expectation of two great breweries (one with a great rep for wilds) working together was too much. That and the $17 price tag.
