another wild belgian beer from green flash in this series and another one less unique but still deserving of some beer geek attention. this has spent some time in wine barrels, and it shows. so much wine on this, woody and vinous and super mature, belgiany on the yeast side of thing, complex and estery, apples of red and green, not ripe vine berries, grapes, wood. some funk too, farmy rotting wood yeast notes, compelling fruitiness, its not all wild. black cherry and brett, a soda in a clear bottle from the gas station, and some raisins in the mix. its simple basically, but you can build all sorts of layers into it too if you try. thats fun, and this beer is fun. heavy brett, so much alcohol too, why is this so strong? no benefit from its absurd abv, and i wish it were less, because the flavors here lend to volume. fun beer, but i think its overly intense in some ways, and not quite as refined as the best of these sauvage series brews, but thats being critical. looks for all the oak and wine you can bet off on, and you will be happy. less different than i hoped from the other cellar 3 sauvage beers, but darn good!
