Came out an amber color with almost no head to it. Aroma was very minorly tart, a 2 on the 1-10 scale. Acetic acid like vinegar notes. Some floral cheese arrangement came with it.

Taste again, the sour notes were muted, 2.5 on the 1-10 scale, was carrying more of a flanders like profile almost. Earthy and floral. Still had some gym sock funk.

Avery has done good things with their barrel program in regards to tweak and Uncle Jacob's, but their wild series has always been underwhelming to me, this one being no different.
