Tate’s of currants and wild yeasts. Even truffles and oak. Solid sour wild American ale. Smells of earthiness and soil. Great overall beer - phenomenal depth.

Anderson Valley Brewing Co. "Thribble Currant"
$8/.25l glass on tap @ BRÜ Craft & Wurst on 9 July 2018
(Listed at 10.4% abv)

Look: Hazy deep ruby body beneath a creamy off-white head with a touch of pink to it. Average head retention and limited lacing are perfectly acceptable for a sour ale.
Smell: Fruity, "tart", red berry, oak, vinous, acidic, mineralish.
Taste: As the aroma indicates it will be. Quite sour. Very fruity with clear notes of currant, dark fruits, and red berries. Some oak. A little metallic with acidity, but overall very clean for a sour beer. Dry, acidic-but-smooth finish with a light touch of fruitiness remaining.
Feel: Medium bodied and gently crisp with most of the "bite" coming from acidity.
Overall: A beautiful, really well done sour ale slash fruit beer. I could not have hoped for anything better. Stunning, really. If the U.S. can keep producing wild ales of this quality and depth Belgium will soon lose its place at the top of the sour beer game. Highly recommended and well worth seeking out!
