This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a concave white foamy little head. Quick dissipation, still lacing sticks finely. The smell starts off with some sweet lemon, sticky bitter lemon rind, lemon juice, slight bitter pine, subtle dry citrus and citrus rind. A little bit of sour lemon balances nicely. The taste was mainly sour with an ample amount of sweet to bitter underneath in the citrus department. Dry sour lemon aftertaste leads into a sticky sour finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seems to run nicely allowing the bitterness of the rind to be the harshness. Overall, I say this was a pretty good sour/wild ale. I’d have it again.

On tap at Bailey's.

A mildly hazy straw yellow with a dense, white head with good retention and lacing, this looks great. The nose is great too. Funky, Brett heavy with spicy clove, mild phenols and a wonderful, bright dry-hopped character with tropical fruit and a little pineapple, this is great. A mild vinous note is present as well as a touch of grain. The palate opens tart, funky, earthy with a mild tannin character. A little bit of grainy bread, some fruit (citrus/tropical) and a moderate funk are present. Earth, mushrooms, a little bit of wet straw are present. A touch chalky on the finish, this beer is tart, lemony and refreshing. Delicious.

Thanks to greenkrusty for scoring this one for me. Pours a golden color beer, looks like a pale ale for the most part, good clarity 1/2" white head, average retention, probably above average for a wild ale. Aroma imparts lemon and Mosaic hop dankness. Enjoyable.

Taste, its not a style I've been often impressed with, but this is one of, if not the best ipa/wild ale I've had. Plenty of citrus tang without a hefty dose of acidity, I like it. Lemon and tangerine notes throughout the mouthfeel. Despite the name, there isn't a ton of funk, but it also doesn't smack of kettle souring either.

I liked this one a lot. Would bang again.

Sampled on tap. Pours a light yellow with a touch of haze. Quite a pucker. Smell is in-your-face bright, acidic, lemon candy, a little funk, some tropical notes. Taste is much of the same and more - lemon, funk, malic sourness, mango, unripe pineapple. Tastes like the Mango Altoid Sours they used to make.
