look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

poured into SP stemmed tulip, 45 degrees

pours a reddish brown, little to no head. a quick fizz then nadda

nose is nice, tart sour fruit. light cherry and green apple. lots of berry. light oak.

i usually same similar to nose but not the case today. the flanders part really is stand out. however, it is lighter giving way to over characteristics. the dominating fruit would be cherry all the way. lots of nice cherry flavor with hints of berry. sounds like the smell but oddly enough, its different. some faint oak.

pretty vibrant carbonation giving way to the flavors as they pop out.

overall, awesome sauce. i loved it and i love the pull tab for easy wax removal. and the name is fucking metal \m/ !!!

PULLING NAILS, onslaughting your mouth, mouth mosh.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange. Medium white head.

Smell - Musty brett. White wine. Some toasty malt.

Taste - White wine is stronger here. Buttery and a bit of vinegar up front. Brett is strong, too. Toasty malt.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Moderate sourness.

Overall - Good, but doesn't blow me away like I expected from the reviews.

This has the perfect wild ale tanginess but with superior drinkability. The flavors are oranges, tangerines, light Apple and pear with an earthy mineral tone.
