You can tell the fermentation on this beer is real and not an inoculation. Tastes like a natural lemonade while being in a field of wildflowers. Clean and crisp with a tartness that complements the beer. Excellent.

375ml bottle, cap and cork, 2016 vintage. Served in a stemmed glass. Pours a slightly cloudy golden-orange body with a one finger thick and effervescent white head with appropriate retention, minimal lacing, thin collar. Smell is a wonderful bouquet of oak, mineral and leather; the overall funk gets somewhat closer to the funky complexity of Gueuze. There is lemon, a bit of grainy sweetness as well as a bit of stonefruit. Great complex aroma. Flavour is quite a bit like a Resurgam type; mild-moderate acetic acidity, lemon, stone fruit, moderately heavy oak, minerals with a bit of leather on the finish. One of the more complex wilds I've gotten to try. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, good carbonation, refreshing in its complexity. Overall, a very nice wild ale with a great funk on it; presumably this is from the greater competition and diversity of the microflora based on the bottle description. There is more oak flavour then expected, but I don't get any sherry notes, as hard as I try to look for it, but it makes sense that there wouldn't be.
