(bottle)
A: pours orange main body with small white head with ok retention and lacing
S: interesting, slightly sour, fermented fruit like smell; some toffee as well
T: maple-like taste with some toffee notes; a bit of twang but nothing too ridiculous
M: medium bodied and silky smooth
D: nice feel and taste combo; interesting tasting beer; pretty solid tasting beer for a wild ale where it could end up as anything. There's good wild yeast by Allentown!

This brew poured out as a lightly hazy yellow color with a pretty good size white head on top. The smell of the beer gave off the aromas of Brett for sure. The smell was also a little on the grainy side too. The taste of the beer was pretty mild which I liked. The Brett wasn't overpowering at all in this. There were even some citrus flavors shining through also. The mouthfeel of the beer was decent, it was pretty typical and not anything special. Overall it's not a bad wild ale. Doesn't come close to many other out there but for an attempt at doing something like this I think it was a good start for them.
