Drank on-tap at Deep Ellum, Allston, MA
Served in a cervoise

The hazy, straw colored liquid was topped by a bright white, sea foam, three-finger head that deposited thick rings of lacing all down the glass.

Tons of dry, powdery yeastiness came through in the nose. Super crisp and snappy. Moderately funky and musty with bright, clean, lemon notes. As much as I loved the aroma, I would be remiss if I did not say that it reminded me of lemon scented Pledge. A touch of hops appeared as well.

The taste was soft and gentle for a wild ale, yet o-so-flavorful. As in the nose, the dry, crisp yeastiness was immediately noticeable but it quickly softened to reveal layers of flavors. Crackery malts appeared up front. Notes of lemon peel and white wine appeared in the center. A touch fruity and spicy. Some sourness was present but it was restrained for the style. The beer was rather musty however. The finish was quite striking with notes of lemon peel, oak and earthy hops lingering into the dry, refreshing aftertaste.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied. Smooth and frothy with a zippy, large bubbled effervescence.

Drinkability was fantastic. This beer is super tasty and refreshing. I cannot think of a better way to relax on a warm, Boston, summer night than with a Lady.

I have tried a number of beers from Cisco Brewing and this is unquestionably my favorite to date. While it may not exhibit the intense sourness of some other American wild ales, it does certainly demonstrate a complexity of flavor and a smoothness that many lack.

Poured from a bottle conditioned, 750 ml bottle into a goblet glass. 2014 vintage

Pours a golden amber color with an eggshell white head that dissipates rather quickly. Very little visible lacing around the glass as I sip. The color alms or reminds me of apple juice to be honest. It's quite exquisite!

Smells of sour pears, apples, and peaches. Lacto is very prevalent on the nose with no malt or hop profile detected.

Tastes very tart as it costs the tongue. Lacto is present. Although very sour, the beer finishes a bit sweet, particularly when licking your lips minutes after swallowing. Some oaky finish is present as well upon swallowing.

Mouthfeel is awesome. Puckering initially l, but then mellows out upon swallowing, bringing out the oaky flavor from the barrel aging. Although this beer is well carbonated, it doesn't have an overly harshness on the tongue. The pleasant prickliness is welcoming with each sip.

One of the best sour beers I may have ever had. Very well balanced with a mouthfeel that leaves you yearning for another sip. I think this beer would benefit from aging, it's pretty fantastic as it is upon release. I would definitely seek this one out of you are a sour beer fan. You will not be disappointed!

On-tap at Prime 16 into an Allagash goblet.

A: Clear, pale yellow body with a thin, fine white head. Average retention and some light lacing. All right, but nothing special.

S: Lovely, delicate nose of funky Brett, tart fruit, white wine (nicely acidic with some tropical fruit) and a bit of dry oak. Hugely complex and perfectly enticing.

T: Huge doses of funk and oak, with some sour fruit mixed in as well. Green apple, lemon, and tangerine notes are all apparent, and everything resolves into a big, vinous, vanilla-y finish. Delectable.

M: Smooth and rich for a lighter-bodied beer, with plenty of silky effervescence. Heavenly.

D: It's so tasty that the huge funk and substantial sourness aren't even minor obstacles. I had four of theses in a row (something I almost never do at Prime 16), and could have easily kept going. Amazing.

Notes: Far more drinkable than Dark Woods, if a bit less complex. Equally awesome.

Poured into a Hill Farmstead goblet, revealing clear light gold body under an effervescent off-white head. Some lacing. Very very pretty. Smells fruity with hints of white grape and cardamom along with a clean funkiness. Very, very promising smells except the slight soapiness folded somewhere into the funk.

Tastes clean and lightly funky with the same white grape fruitiness and a slight yeasty spice. Finish is very clean, almost water-like. Light bodied with traces of lively carbonation, smooth and easy-flowing on the tongue. Medium dryness. Extremely drinkable.

Overall it's a simple but well done brew. I don't know what age will do to it but I'm satisfied with what it is now.

750 mL bottle poured into a tulip glass

A- Hazy golden color with a white head that fades quickly.

S- Tart fruits, grapes and lemons mainly, reminds me of white wine a little, funky yeast smell, hint of vinegar. Overall I would say the smell reminds me a Gueuze that is not as intense as normal.

T- Amazing, I don't see how the taste could be improved on! More sour than the smell, great big slightly sour grape flavor in the middle, and just enough funk in the finish.

M- Light, crisp, clean, smooth, refreshing and dry.

D- Goes down very easy, this is definitely one of you favorite sours and worth the price tag. Cork was a pain to get off, the top was starting to rip on me, but it is worth all the work to get what is inside. I can't wait to grad more bottles.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Great looking bright gold body with a fine white head. Head pours 1/2 a finger high with ok retention and poor lace.

S - Bright, astringently sour nose. Huge sweet-tart candy character, strong ginger, lemon, and a touch of crisp tart peaches.

T - Aggressively sour, spot on for an American Wild. Bold kaffir lime sets the stage for lemon, hay, bay leaves, bright oaky wood, apricot, and an edge of tart and chalky smarties.

M - Medium-full, surprisingly full for the style, with a smooth body.

O - A great, complex American Wild: the right balance of sour, sweet, and oak on a silky frame.

A- a yellow gold color with a slight haze, head has been steady in my Duvel Tulip

S- a little bit of sour, some delicate citrus flavors

T- Some oak, bits of vanilla, chamomile, citrus, lemon, light sour flavors

M- smooth, medium body, carbonation is medium to high

D- I really like this beer. I can't wait for the summer since this will be a perfect to drink in the hot weather. The sour flavors are really nice, kinda mellow and not yet overpowering to the rest of the beer, but they starting to take over. I will be really interested to see what happens in the next year or two.

I got this bottle from tprokop7, 750mL, corked and caged. It took a lot of effort to get the cork out, but once it gave there was a little gushing. Not enough to cause any real damage, maybe a few ounces.

The beer is pale yellow with a little chill haze and a lot of white froth and substantial lacing. The aroma was a little surprising as I expected a Belgiat wit bier based on what the label said. But the label also mentioned that it's barrel aged, and that process gave this beer a sour edge that really goes well with the wit aromas. I can smell the standard witbier characteristics like orange peel and spice (chamomile I guess) but there's a brett-like mustiness that makes this smell more like Matilda or other lightly sour Belgian styles.

This is one of the best hybrid ideas I've come across. Basically 60% Matilda plus 40% Hoegaarden, a nice combo that gives all kinds of yeasty esters, spice, and funk. The body is light like a wit bier should be, no indication of ABV on the bottle but the alcohol isn't noticeable. Tasty as hell, this is a beer you could drink on a hot summer day or at the end of the night.

Thanks portia99 for this delicious beer.
A: Pours a slightly hazy gold yellow with sparkling white head that quickly dissipated.

S: Aromas of wood, vanilla, and lemon with a hint of tropical fruit.

T: Slightly tart and funky taste with just the right balance between the wit beer base, the wood, and the sour. The woodiness and sourness do not overpower the very good wit beer underneath. The apple, lemon, and tropical fruit present in the taste are great.

M: Mouthfeel is great - the carbonation is a bit on the high side which is perfect for this beer. It makes it so refreshing.

D: This is a fantastic summer beer. It's so incredibly drinkable, and is much more complex than the typical witbier.

Got as an extra in a trade with johnnnniee - many thanks! This is the barrel aged version of their Grey Lady which I am a huge fan of so can't wait to try it. Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass. No dating info but I believe this just came out recently so fresh. Was a hazy straw color with lots of floaters and carb streams. It opened with a loud pop and then immediately had overflowing foam. Quickly got into a glass and had a massive foamy white head that very slowly settled into a constant foam cap. As the bottle was sitting, I again got an overflow of the bottle. A bit over carbonated but still looks great.

The aroma was excellent. It is very multi-layered. You get the tart fruit, chamomile and orange peel from the base Grey Lady and then you get oak, vanilla and quite a bit of funk from the barrel aging. Smells quite a bit like a wild ale which I love. The taste is equally amazing and again very sour beer like. Great funk taste up-front with the oak and base wit flavors close behind. Really wasn't expecting the funk here so was greatly pleased. Could drink this one anytime, anywhere. Mouthfeel was crisp with a great sour bite that is offset at the end by the base wit so you are ready for the next drink. The over carbonation was a bit of a pain as this one fills you up quickly till you can burb it out.

Overall, an amazing wit/sour blend. Highly recommend and hope I can find some more of it. A very interesting beer from a brewery that I'm going to have to dig deeper into. They made a brief appearance here in TX during the summer but then disappeared. Saw a forum post that they are coming back this year so hope the rumor is true. Rotation - see last sentence. If here, I'd get several of these. [H;Y]

750ml bottle purchased as a single from Julio's, Westboro, MA. Corked & caged.

Poured into a Harpoon tulip, formed a 2" bright white head over the clear light gold brew. Airy head deflates gradually, with plentiful chunky lacing. Aroma is tartness, wheat, funk, and oak. Taste starts sweet, goes tart over the tongue, and closes with oak notes and alcohol on the back of the throat. Flavors seem very distinct and separate. Mouthfeel is small-bubbled and soft, and drinkability is very good. Well constructed, enjoyable, interesting brew.

22oz corked and caged bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a very clear, pale straw color with a huge, dense whipped cream textured white head with long, long staying power.

S - Interesting combination...some nice woody notes, definitely getting a big hit of brett (tho the bottle makes no mention of this), some nice floral aromas, citrus - oranges and lemons, and just a hint of ginger. Definitely a funked up version of a nice Belgian witbier. The brettiness seems to almost convert this more into a saison profile...lots of farmhouse character and complexity.

T - Lots of funk up front - nice and horseblankety. Behind the funk is a tartness and lactic sourness that is quite good. Some herbal and citrusy lemon and especially lime flavors combine together nicely too. Subtle oakiness and some light yeastiness round things out. I am pleasantly surprised how good this is.

M - Thin and a touch watery...almost lemonade like in feel...texture and tartness probably create this effect. Carbonation is pretty high with a good tingly feel. A touch puckering with a lingering tartness and a slightly cool spicy/herbal character left behind.

D - Well, I have no idea what the alcohol level is here. Probably not very high...nothing to indicate a very high level alcohol, but I'm thinking this is a bit higher than the typical witbier. Really good and refreshing beer. Excellent complexity - the blend of fruity, herbal, funky, yeasty flavors is really hitting the spot. I cleared out a local store of these last week...gonna have to scrounge for a couple more bottles of this before they are totally gone.

A-Pours a translucent golden yellow with a minimal head.
S-Green apple tart notes are very present, along with a bit of funkyness, very much Gueuze-like in aroma. Oak is there, but is overpowered by the other aromas.
T- Nice and tart, with apple notes present. Has a nice puckering effect but not overwhelming. Very clean and dry beer, oaky vanilla flavors are present, but are hard for me to pick out.

Overall this is a very solid american wild ale. I am definitely impressed and will pick up more bottles.

Review adapted from notes taken 5/7/11

Appearance: Hazy, pale, tangerine-gold color - starts with a fizzy head, doesn't last long, leaves some nice lacing

Smell: Heavy on the tart, especially when it's cold - hay, barnyard, lemon tartness - some sour, some funk - pale malts - hints of oak, floral notes

Taste: So good - funky and sour to start, but as it warms it becomes more complex and delicate - lemon tartness - sour, not puckering, but very tart - lemon zesty to an extent - a lot of wood, which helps balance the flavor - very dry, but some hints of sweetness - some hints of other fruits

Mouthfeel: Extremely smooth and gloriously dry - this is exactly what I want for this style - nicely carbonated, too

Overall: Great stuff

This was a treat. I was unsure of where to even put my expectations, as this is a sour that was pretty easy to get. Honestly, these Cisco Woods beers deserve more hype. They are excellent. I hope I can continue to get these in the future without too much fuss.

Thanks to bmanning for sharing this with Amyliz4, hhanson, Azurelimits, and me at a recent tasting.

A: Pours a bright, transparent citrus yellow with a bit of golden haze. Nice white head throughout.

S: Spicy belgian yeast, bit of oak, and plenty of citrus. Some nice wheat tartness coming through as well.

T: Very nice oak character comes in atop the tart citrus and wheat characteristics. Incredibly complex for a witbier. Some nice Belgian spice makes its way in as well.

M: Light-to-medium body, although pretty heavy for a witbier. The wheat and oak combine to create a nice dryness.

D: Very drinkable. Probably the best version of the style that I've had. Wholeheartedly agree with Ben that I'd love to see more barrel-aged light beers like this, as I have almost uniformly enjoyed the barrel-aged lighter beers that I've come across.

From notes taken at the Armsby Abbey on 9/1

A - Hazy straw appearance with a nice two finger head leaving minimal lacing. Nice carbonation bubbles coming up from the bottom.

S - Typical wild ale aromas. Nice funky yeast and tart citrus.

T - Loving the funky Brett and sour fruit tastes. Sour citrus, apples, very complex flavors. Almost buttery taste.

M - Medium carbonation with a very crisp/tart finish.

D - Tart, crisp, and funkky. It all goes down so easy and smooth. If the price was lower this would be an every day drink for me.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into my tasting snifter glass. Pours a pale, clear straw color with about a finger and a half white fizzy head. Head has decent retention, very little lacing. Overall, a pretty average looking sour, a little clear for my liking.

Aroma is wood, tart, and lemon. Not much to expect, but smells like a standard sour...yet at the same time, like a good sour! Starting to get a bit more excited!

Flavor is wonderful! Wow, I really wasn't expecting much. This is more than solid. Very tart and funky. Medium carbonation, not boozy, as expected. Wood notes throughout, but mostly on the back end. Lemon/citrus fruit flavors. Finishes slightly dry, with a great sour aftertaste. Drinkability is excellent for a sour! Some you like to sip, this one goes down super easy. Again, for a sour I wasn't expecting much from, I would be glad to drink this one again anytime...simply delicious!!

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.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Good give off the cork with a big pop.

Deep peach orange body, roaring middle column of carbonation in the middle of the body, with side white small pinhead bubbles cascading the sides of the glass. Head is soapy and off white in color, but with lots of snapping carbonation and little retention, but manages to settle slowly, and stick with a good half finger puck. Real good looking brew.

Aroma is like classic white grape, slightly sweet. Big dry powdery wood notes, almost like sawdust. Fruit angle somewhere around faint sour lemon and big oily zest. Not much hint of barrel aging character from the bouquet so far, but a solid nose.

Palate has lots of tang. Big notes of lemon and citrus juice. Big zesty and oily coating tangy finish, with a hint of wet juiced body, and much toned down dryness. Big zesty notes on this, with oily bitter finish. Comes off with just a real balanced sweetness on the finish as well to match the sour tang. Minimal pucker, with a good simple malt depth. Moderate carbonation with just a bit of mouth play, and lip coating fruity oils.

It doesn't hint at thick round character, but the barrels (yeast?) really made the fruit and lemon notes just burst alive. Real good take on a wild ale brew.

A 750 ml caged/corked bottle, delivered last fall by BanditBrewingCo straight to Portland, Oregon. Opened on this rainy spring night and poured to a pint glass.

An oak barrel-aged witbier (Cisco's standard wit 'Grey Lady')! Finally!!!

A: Faintly cloudy 'wheat'-yellow, with a healthy, finger-high head, fluffy white cream. Excellent retention, falls gradually in rocky clumps. A little funky fallout, which isn't a shock given months worth of aging, as well as bottle-conditioning.

S: A fine aroma: dry, mineral and citrus fruit-y, with what I think is brett yeast(?). A little on the nostril-clearing side with its souring... but that's not an average wit characteristic. An aroma that begs for a first sip...

T: Lemony-tart bitterness right away, then more of the bready/wheat character escapes in the finish. Label speaks of chamomile and orange peel, neither of which can I really discern beneath a hearty dry woodiness and powdery spice. Could be a muddy mess; instead it's a puzzlingly complex take on a wit, completely enjoyable each and every sip.

M: Crisp without being overly carbonated. But it IS well-carbonated, a dancing and effervescent airiness amidst a puckering, tongue-twisting tart.

O: Among the 'wilds', this most closely resembles Orval, believe it or not - although not as dry. Very easy to drink: light-bodied and charmingly refreshing. The still-affixed price tag (over $21) tells me this was NOT CHEAP, but it's beautifully crafted and was really a pleasure to drink. I'd love to have this again!

A slightly haze straw that is a touch darker than straw with small white head. Little lacing.
Smell is of sour and wild. Bret bret bret. Not really much else. Kinda vinous.
Tart and sour taste that dries. A touch of pineapple and pear. More fruity as is warms. Tart apple comes into it and the oak is noticeable. That wildness is there and plays all the way through.
Nicely carbonated and great dry finish

A really nice Sour. A lot of nice flavors that come through and a great take on the base beer, Gray lady

Got this is a trade with Gushue3, my Cisco Woods guy.

Appearance: Straw and slightly cloudy. White poppin off head.

Smell: like a horse blanket ... to this day, it still cracks me up that beer folks relish a beer that has such aromas as that of a barnyard/horse blanket ...

Taste: tart, refreshing, reminds me personally of RR temptation (if I'm remembering the right -ation that is).

Overall: Fantastic ... I liked Dark Woods a little better and I think that's because it was completely unexpected. When I'm up in Massachusetts, I'll get this beer again for sure.

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.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head that reduces to a ring on top rather quickly. Little bits of white lace form on the glass.

S: Very funky and musty with some nice sour lemon, apple, white grapes, and vinegar.

T: Nice sour lemon flavor upfront with some green apple and white grapes mixed in. The oak comes out as does a nice lactic sourness. There is a bit of funk, but not has much as the aroma, the flavor profile is much more fruity.

M: Closer to medium than light bodied with medium to high carbonation, slightly dry finish.

O: A really nice wild ale. Not overly sour, but it has a nice level of funk and fruity flavors. Wish their sours were a few dollars cheaper, but will definitely try and grab a few more at some point.

Poured from a bottle into a Dogfish snifter

A- pours a slightly dark shade of yellow with a two finger, very foamy white head. It doesn't stick around for long, but leaves some very bubbly lacing

S- there's a nice lemony aroma coming out, and I detect the faint smell of some brett in there too. Not bad, but a little different

T- sour tropical fruit...reminds me a lot of Le Terroir, but a little more dry. Damn enjoyable

M- there actually is a very solid body to this one, it's pretty heavy....odd given that it's a 5% wild

O- very different sour, and I really enjoy it. Great beer
