An interesting brew. immediately brings to mind a dry white wine from the muscat family with a slightly floral aroma and a musky undertone in the taste. And it's probably power of suggestion, but it also has hints of an orange wine going on with a strange and enjoyable bees wax lined amphora aged finish, albeit a very short finish.

Fairly thin in the body and effervescent. I can see it pushing on the edge of Berliner world. That's not a bad thing. But it seems straight lactobacillus, so its fairly clean and tart. Not a lot of sour nuisance or diversity here.

My rating reflect this as being more Berliner in style than wild ale. They'd be lower if judged as a wild.
