Pours out really dark brown at first and seems black when you get the glass full, Really nice brownish-white head about two and a half fingers with really good retention. Smell is your typical Belgian yeast with bananas and cloves -- really no hops in the nose and some sweet malts to be sure. Taste is much like the nose. Pretty sweet with likely Belgian sugars. Mouthfeel is decently thick. I guess it is what I would expect. Overall a pretty good beer.. Thanks Lauran. Nothing that will blow your socks off but pretty good all the same. Certainly tastes like a Belgian but not as good as a true Belgian to be sure, That being said I really like this beer.

Shared a bottle with my beer nerd pals on a nice Memorial weekend closure on the deck.

Appearance is a dark brown with slight purple tint. Smell is what I love. The infamous horse blanket / barnyard smell is in full effect here. The smell really got me excited for this beer.

The taste was solid but a little bit of a let down. It was extremely funky but nothing really blowing me away here. Not really sour or tart at all. Solid Belgian style beer with noticeable funk.

Overall this was a decent wild ale and was at a good price point on sale ($8.99). Worth under $10 a bottle if you can find it.
