Poured from a bottle this limited release appears the color of reddish brown garnet; semi-transparent with a thick, fluffy beige head that leaves lacing on the glass. As the label reads: Not quite in the Red, or in the Black... The aroma is reminiscent of a pomander or orange clove with an alluring trace of earthy hops.

Lightly carbonated and bordering on a full-bodied beer, Wilco Tango Foxtrot goes down quite easily, in spite of its relative strength. It is juicy, soft on the palate, and slightly warming, with a pleasant maltiness that serves as a counterbalance to the hoppy character that lingers on the tongue. A bitter, long finishing drink that pairs well with food, this is an ale to be savored, only to be brought out when the need for a little good cheer is pressing.
