Poured from bottle to teku
Look is an effervescent cranberry with a thin white head.
Nose has musty and wine like qualities
Acidic on the tongue, but juicy on the finish.
Worth trying if you see it on a shelf!

375 ml bottle into tulip glass; release #01, late 2016 vintage. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden amber/light pink color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of lightly tart/tangy blueberry, cranberry, raspberry, strawberry, cherry, plum, peach, lemon, green apple, white wine, almond, hay, straw, oak, vanilla, wheat, cracker, light musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, fruit, oak barrel, and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lightly tart/tangy blueberry, cranberry, raspberry, strawberry, cherry, plum, peach, lemon, green apple, white wine, almond, hay, straw, oak, vanilla, wheat, cracker, light musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light fruity/lactic tartness and yeast/oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of blueberry, cranberry, raspberry, strawberry, cherry, plum, lemon, green apple, white wine, almond, hay, straw, oak, vanilla, wheat, cracker, light musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, fruit, oak barrel, and moderate pale malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness balance, and zero puckering flavors after the finish. Light dryness from tartness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly grainy/acidic, and lightly tannic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 8.2%. Overall this is an excellent fruited wild ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, fruit, oak barrel, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mellow tartness/acidity. Not as sour or funky as I expected; this still had nice Brett complexity, with plenty of fruit and oak presence, without being overpowering. A very enjoyable offering.
