On draft at the brewpub on 9/28/11.

Apparently this is a 'wild' version of their Karma Belgian Pale...

A - Has a nice orange color with a short white head. No head retention or lace.

S - Holy cow was this a surprise. Smells bretty at first with some dusty funk. Then sourness creeps in and grows larger and larger. There's also a lovely tangerine aroma that I assume is mostly from the hops/base beer.

T - There's a big lactic kick in the flavor that pulls at the back of the throat. Lots of citrus flavor going on - sweet lemon and orange with some grapefruit acidity.

M - Light and crisp, though fairly low carbonation.

O - Awesome beer... this is the kind of amazing little one-off stuff that I loved about visiting all of the breweries around Colorado. Avery - please make this again!
