Poured into a Belgian tulip from a 375 mL bottle.

Lots of light, fizzy head results from the pour, requiring several pour-and-waits. A golden, hazy body glistens beneath. The head is highly persistent and leaves rings of lace behind. 4.25

A medley of citrus aromas dance on the nose. It's lemony initially, but then more grapefruit rind and sweet orange appear. There's a light, sweet malt presence and a wine or grape must. It's a pleasant nose, but subtle. 4

Hmm, I think this may suffer from a few offtastes. The brew is minerally and kind of nutty like almonds, before I get some lemony and sweet citrus flavor. I'm on the fence about the taste. 3.5

Light-drinking, slightly effervescent and only faintly tart, the mouthfeel is enjoyable enough. 3.75

This beer has some good moments and potential and some odd moments that seem off. It's in the okay-to-good category. 3.55

thanks to ablackshear for this extra!

750ml bottle sealed with pressure cap and clear wax. Cool label art.

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: yellow bodied beer with 2 finger of bone white head.

Smell: green apple. pear skin, and white grapes.

Taste: mild tartness. green apples, pears, and white grape. Bready malts. Fruity and yeasty.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with high carbonation levels. Very sessionable.

Overall: This is not a wild beer. Its is more of a belgian pale ale with a yeast forward profile. This is my first TRVE bottle. I dig what they tried to accomplish, but its not a wild ale.
