Unknown vintage, $9.99 on sale, yep good deal.
Cork pops quietly, pours pretty standard, thin layer of white foam and good clarity. No lace, webby surface skim.
Aroma is oaky, definitely some damp wood, with a light acidic presence. Smells pretty nice.
Taste is a little one-dimensional but pleasant, tart lemon and crabapple, lychee, malic and citric acid.
Juicy tart and puckering at first, with vague woody traces in the dry finish. Light bodied with a light effervescence.
Overall this is a pretty prototypical AWA, i've passed on it for years due to the price but it's pretty good.

2014 750ml split between three people, you may be better off with five or six -- straight up briny woody lemon juice sourness and lots of it. Notes of champagne/white wine. Very sour and rather simplistic but this is a pretty wonderful wild ale. Well-carbonated, bordering on too intense but really great interesting flavor coming through.

While I wish there was more oak taste, the beer itself is solid. A nice blend of sour and grassiness. Not too sweet, and not too tart.

2010 vintage, this has held up amazingly well. Hazy golden yellow, Cisco nailed the color. Light funk with almost undetectable spices that where added but they are their and give this some added depth. Extremely poundable, enjoyed this but I am sad this was my last one.

750 ml caged and corked bottle, 2014 vintage. Served in a St. Bernardus chalice, the beer pours a slightly hazy golden/orange color with about an inch creamy off-white head that stuck around for a very long time. There's a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like citrus, tropical fruit, white wine, peaches and oak. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's the addition of cantaloupe, apricot and earthiness. It's really tart and tasty! Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy, smooth and easy to drink with a good amount of carbonation. I thought it was pretty good, I liked it more the longer I drank it. Definitely worth trying if you see a bottle, I know I wouldn't mind buying this again. $20.99 a bottle at Party Source.

Not hugely complex, but super pleasant to drink. Herbal Earl Grey runs under the rounded sour lemon rind character. Lovely bite, no problem finishing a bottle.
