Amber color, 1/2" head on it, off white. Flowers and tartness in the smells.

Taste was a mild going easy drinking wild ale affair. Some flowers and citrus rind. Its a 2.5 on the 1-10 sour scale. Real mild. Flowery. The brett character just wasn't there for me, I heard NB pastuerizes all their beers now, even wild ales, so that would seem to destroy any brett development, and this tasting was somewhat confirmation of the rumor.
