Not sure if this is truly a wild ale. I think if it as more of a Brett farmhouse ale. Nice, better than good. Pleasure balance of tart, dry, clean and sweet on the palate. Nice job Peter and Co.

Mid sized bottle...thanks to my buddy Pat FD for gifting this to me.

"Bottled january 2016" so this has been in the bottle for about a year now.

Pours dull looking shade of dark orange, minor light kahki film, thin collar and some low tiny bubble sheeting.

Sniff reveals some earthy, bretty, yeasty, funkyness...yum...simply love a funked up brew with brett in evidence.

Delicious stuff, with more and more of the above flavors coming forward.....funky,earthy, yeasty, bretty, more barnyard....tasty, complex and enjoyable...happy to be able to sample this tasty nectar....

Thanks to Smanson56 for this one from his LIF box. Pint bottle poured into 10oz goblet. Bottled in January 2016. Poured a lightly hazy yellow gold color with some rocky, white head that immediately dissipated to a very thin ring, and left no lacing.

The beer was a huge Brett-bomb on the nose, LOTS of funk on top, with some very gentle grain underneath. Fairly similar descriptors on the tongue, with the grain showing a bit more backbone, and, perhaps, some very faint earthy hops.

The body was crisp and smooth, with a clean dry finish. Drinkability was great, if you're a Brett fan. Overall, a very nice brew that I wouldn't mind having a few more bottles of to see how the Brett changes the beer over time. Worth trying if you see it.
