BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Stillwater Artisanal Ales
Maryland, United States
stillwater-artisanal.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
It’s fresh, floral and funky - with notes of apricot, grapefruit and fresh grass - lightweight at only 5% ABV, and comes served in a 16oz bright-orange can. Blurring the line between beer and wine, it’s a perfect summer crusher for those looking for distinctive flavor and experience.

The 7000 label art, designed in collaboration with Mike Van Hall (@opprobriations), is a punchy reflection of Bronson's corresponding album of the same name.

With an equally unconventional approach to life, work and art, (and a mutual appreciation for super-natural wines and terpy dabs) Brian and Action make an excellent synergetic match. As fate would have it, they met a few years ago as neighbors and that’s where the story began. This beer is a culmination of many creative sessions and studio hangs - born of their desire to produce something equally unique and exciting.

Tastes like a basic kettle-soured ale that has been dry-hopped with grapes added. Which, of course, is exactly what it is. Nothing more, nothing less. Not overly complex. Zero bitterness and not very much funk.

Canned 07/23/18

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy and pale golden yellow with a white, two-finger width head. Good retention before dying to a mostly barren surface and a thin, broken ring encircling the glass. No lacing.

Smell - Some mineral character on the nose, along with light sourness and a bit of citrus as well.

Taste - Follows the nose. Slightly Metallic-like and mineral flavor upfront along with some lesser bright citrus tartness; lemon and tangerine. Hint of grape skin. Finish is tart with lingering mineral qualities.

Mouthfeel - Light-bodied with lively carbonation. Slick and quick to a crisp, dry finish, much like a champagne.

Overall - Decent brew despite the odd, mineral-like quality that is found throughout the entire experience. Nothing I'd care to drink again though.

yellow in color, slightly pale. Minimal amount of white fizzy head. A dry hopped sour ale that is crushable, mild and full of flavor with the nice addition of muscat grapes that add a pleasurable sweetness that mellows the souriness out a bit. Aroma is of sweet green grapes and the hop addition is perfect.

A basic kettle-soured ale, dry-hopped and some grapes thrown in. Not complicated, just straightforward. Lightly tart and effervescent, decent amount of carbonation and fizziness, and no bitterness.

A: The beer is a little hazy light golden yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly faded away, leaving a narrow collar around the edge fo the glass and lots of specks of bubbles covering most of the surface and eventually completely fading away.
S: Light aromas of green grapes are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of green grapes along with a light amount of sourness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite "grapey" and tastes like a hybrid between an American Wild Ale and a white wine.

Pours a rocky head and fizzy white head that quickly starts to work itself down. Kind of soda like head. The color is a partly hazy straw. This beer looks like champagne when it comes out of the can.

Nose is guava, mango, wine grapes, sour apple, pineapple, and crackers. The first wiff I took was so strong that I recoiled, but in a good way. This smells fucking amazing.

The flavor is pretty tart. Sour apple, mango, pineapple, champagne, crackers in there as well. The aftertaste and retronasal really beg for another sip. The alcohol is not tasted, but it is felt.

The soda like carbonation goes really well with the flavors in this beer. It has a crisp and dry finish that will bring you right back into it. The mouthfeel is neither watery nor thick, it sits right where it needs to be.

This is a very delicious beer. It started off feeling like it would be one note, but really oopens up the more you sip on it. This wine additions to this beer give it a fantastic champagne/sparkling wine quality that make it feel like it should be popped to celebrate a special occasion.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 5/30/2018. Pours slightly hazy pale golden straw color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big lightly tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange, zest, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, red/green apple, mango, melon, guava, berry, white grape/wine, fruit skin, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, wheat, cracker, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/light acidic yeast, citrus/tropical hops, grapes, and light-moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with great strength. Taste of lightly tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange, zest, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, red/green apple, mango, melon, guava, berry, white grape/wine, fruit skin, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, wheat, cracker, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Light fruity/lactic tartness, fruit tang, and yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of lightly tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange, zest, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, red/green apple, mango, melon, guava, berry, white grape/wine, fruit skin, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, wheat, cracker, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/light acidic yeast, citrus/tropical hops, grapes, and light-moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness and tangy fruit balance; with zero puckering flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Moderate increasing dryness from tartness, tangy fruit, and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, fairly grainy/acidic/tangy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is an excellent fruited/dry hopped sour/wild ale! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/light acidic yeast, citrus/tropical hops, grapes, and light-moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly tart/tangy finish, not overly lactic. Very flavorful for the ABV. This is a lot less lactic/puckering than the Dry Cry, but pretty similar(muscat instead of Riesling grapes). Very well balanced Brett complexity, grapes, and citrus/tropical hops; with a solid pale/wheat malt backbone against acidity. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as usual.
