Bottled 12-20-14
Poured into mini snifter

Looks just like flat champagne on the pour. A tiny bit of fizz disappears quickly. The nose and taste are definitely of white wine grapes. Very nice sour.

A: Huge citrus and tropical fruit, especially mango and pineapple, lightly vinous, with a moderate sourness.

A: Bright light gold color, hazy, with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring around the glass.

T: Crisp, citrus and tropical fruit, mango and pineapple, light guava, light funk, and lightly vinous, coupled with moderate sourness and dry finish.

M: Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation and a very light acidity.

O: Awesome; the beer has a great citrusy tropical fruit aroma and flavor with a moderate sourness and well balanced acidity. Delicious and very easy to drink!

-pours crystal clear and golden over the top two-thirds of the bottle and some haze with the bottom. Aroma seems brett-influenced with oak and some tropical notes. The flavor is pleasantly astringent, vinous qualities with tropical fruits and citrus. There is oak flavors as well. This has a tingly and crisp mouthfeel. It is quite enjoyable.

hard not to just love everything these guys make, and man oh man do they brew a lot of different stuff. highly prolific, unrivaled even. this, like a lot of beers with these fruits, and like other wicked weed beers with multiple fruits (brettaberry comes to mind), this seems a bit muddled for what it is, like all the tropical fruit runs together a bit and ends up a sweet fruit punch sort of thing rather than any of the fruit specifically. the good news is that i love fruit punch, and so enjoyed this beer quite a lot, even though the tropical fruit is nowhere near as compelling as some of their other fruited beers done with only one kind. the pineapple is probably the most forward of them. brett is nice, some cool wet funk here in the latter stages, and the same high carbonation and acidity many of their other wild ales have. lots of barrel too, which i think helps cut the fruit a bit, sharp tannic white wine and wood, minerals and earth too, pretty dynamic beer if you dont wait for the fruit to be the focal point. love what these guys are up to, hate the price points...

Bottled 6/10/16 poured into WW tulip glass. Pale golden yellow with no head. Smells of tropical fruit, funk, and cider. Sour, tart taste, that's prevalent for the duration of the glass, with tropical fruit notes. Mouthfeel is medium light, carbonation is medium high. Overall, if you like funky sour, this will work for you. It'll wear out the palate.
