375ml corked bottle. A dense golden color with a creamy filmy head. Aroma is tart and apple. Taste is mildly tart, oaky, green apple. Feel is a little puckering, but mostly fluid, refreshing, not much carbonation in the feel although you can see streams of tiny bubbles. Overall, this is a good wild ale although not as interesting in flavor as I would like and overpriced.

375 ml bottle- Pours hazy burnt orange with a thin white head that reduces pretty much immediately. The aroma is tart and lactic, granny smith apples, fruity and funky. The taste is similar, granny smith, high tartness, funky, fruity, and super drinkable, the wood adds complexity, oak, vanilla, tang. Delicious.

this is part of the new line of new belgium sours, cork and caged and really fairly priced for what they are. its a nice strong sour type, not at all as different in this format as i thought it would be, and quite similar to other felix variations i have had over the years. its a great beer no denying that, woody as can be with notes of white wine grapes and dried apricots. a neat malt base here, more flavorful than a lot of beers this acidic, and with a really nice funkiness to, the mix wild elements here is awesome, and new belgium has something special here. i wanted this to stand out as different a little bit more though, like, its killer beer, but it tastes like every other time new belgium busts this out, no weird fruited whiskey or dry hopping or anything here, but it seems sort of simple without all that. i should probably go ahead and assume the same for the oscar single foeder. its cool they are finally releasing these beers on a large scale, it makes good sense and the timing is right for them. they need something us nerds can get excited about, and this is a great move in that direction...
