Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Batch number 002.

Fleeting white head, settles to a thin topped puck and good collar though. Real nice body color. Opaque. With a glowing body of mixed dominant yellows, touches of orange and even green. Makes for a nice appearance, slightly dull edged, but also a nice puff of smoked carbonation in the middle roaring fast.

Tart accents on the nose, slightly buttery oak with sharp sour peach aromas. Quite large on the fruit, almost tropical, a bit hot sensing, just a bit big sensation that takes a little time to get used to. Solid if a bit overly aggressive for myself personally.

The palate really delivers. Fruit basked peach and apricots really burst forward in the mid palate. Light but playful carbonation, which doesn't interfere with the flavors at all but adds a fun dimension to the mouthfeel. Sticky fruit finish, but aftertaste rinses clean and refreshing. Drinks incredibly fast and easy with the low abv, packed with excellent stoned fruit flavors.

A real solid winner in the wild department.

Clear golden yellow color with white head that fizzes away completely. Aroma has wild yeast funk, a hint of honey sweetness and wood. Taste starts with a honey hint but not really sweet, some fruity/floral yeast notes, wood tannins a slightly bitter finish. Medium body with crisp carbonation and dry feel. Overall it's a quite nice wild ale but nothing really special.

Pours a clear straw in color. Very little pale white head that totally disappears pretty quickly.
Aroma is lightly acidic. Relatively mild, pears and lemon. Hint of oak.
Taste is much more complex. Light acidity, some funk, orchard fruit and oak. A bit of leather and a slight hint of the savory character that often comes with Mystic saisons.
Effervesent and refreshing while also complex. Very light, love the 4.5% abv.
Very nice beer, look forward to future iterations.

Picked up a 32oz. growler at the grand opening of their brewpub.
$10 for the beer and $5 for the glass.
Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a full finger of bright white head after a rigorous pour.
Aroma is slightly fruity, lots of brett, some decent funk. Extremely inviting.
Taste is even better with just a hint of sweetness to round out this wild ale. Perfect balance of brett, sour, tartness, and super juicy.
Finishes super clean.
Mouthfeel is crisp and the carbonation is spot on for the style.
I could drink this beer every day and never grow tired of it. It really is that good.

Served on tap at the publick house in Brookline MA
Sered in a mystic pt glass

A: served with a fluffy white 2 finger head that dissapates nicley.... Body is a hazy light yellow straw color. Looks very refreshing and very light, not much lacing.

S: musty funk with notes of Brett, nose almost remiss me of a berlinerweiss, a light perfume floral smell as well. Which I'm guessing has something to do with the name. Lemon citrus notes are also present... As the beer warms a touch it seems that the must and earthyness are coming from the light oak notes present.

T: lemony delicious, with a slight tartness, funky barrel notes blend in beatifuly, this is a very well balanced brew with everything complimenting everything else very nicley. A bit of floralness on there as well. Again i am slughtly reminded of berlinerweiss. Very tasty!

M: light bodies an very drinkable! A great beer for an almost 100 degree day here in Boston. Medium/high carbonation maintains a fuzzy/creamy mouthfeel.

O: I really enjoyed this beer, it's a great release from mystic and it deffinatly excites me for future sour beer releases of theirs in the future... Really glad I had the opportunity to try this.
