Had at the brewery - it's 30% Creeper and 70% IPA with Brett and two other wild yeasts and aged in a French White Oak Bordeaux Barrel.

Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a large-bubbled white head. The head recedes quickly into a thin ring around the glass leaving no lacing.

Smells of brett, with faint hints of herbal hops and bananas.

Tastes a bit more complex than it smells. Brett and sweet malt flavors hit up front, then segue into light herbal and citrus hop flavors before ending with equal parts bitterness and tartness.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with soft carbonation that makes this go down smoothly.

Drinkability is good. I had a few glasses of this and could sip on it for a while.

Overall this was an interesting beer that I hope is a harbinger of things to come for Sweetwater - I'd love to see more wild ales come from them.
