This is an absolute wonderful wild ale, just what you'd want from Trevor and Lindsey. All in all this one is among the best in wild ales made by de Garde.

Looks light gold with a relatively fast fading white head. Nose is full of rye spice, green apple and stone fruit tones. Mouth feel is just about perfect with a great balance in flavors/tart/sour and nice carbonation. Perfect tart/acid and extremely drinkable.

Flavor profile is layered stone fruit with floral tones, hints of rye spice and nice wood undertones. All in all this is one of those "drink with any food" types of beer that still gives you wonderful wild ale drinkability, great balance and just about a perfect flavor profile. Good stuff.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Sparkling amber with a large, active airy off-white foam that settles surprising quickly to a bubbly mat and collar.

Smell is musty, grassy and kind of metallic with a hint of almondy oak, nearing amaretto, as well as apple cider vinegar.

Taste flips the script, as sour lemon and strawberries are very prominent, which is made all the more impressive by the fact that neither were added. Sourness builds over time, with an acetic, bright white wine vinegar and lemony oak.

The body is smooth and slick, with a mildly sharp but minimal carbonation, finishing dry, and quite stinging.

Appearance: Slightly opaque golden-orange body with a bubbly thin cap of head.

Aroma: Astringent aroma with a spiciness, hints of vinegar, mild fruitiness, oak and a little bit of funk.

Taste/Mouthfeel: A lot of spicy rye and wood and funk with a little bit of, what I get a taste of, is banana that lingers on the end. A little acidic and carbonation that ends nice and smooth.

Overall: A really tasty beer. Beautiful looking and funky sour aroma and a taste that really comes through with enough oak and funk to match the aroma.
