Notes / Commercial Description:
Smooth is our Missouri Wild Ale that was fermented in and aged in a French Oak foedre with Missouri microflora for 2 years.

B1 bottle
L: Clear/transluncent apricot and hay hues with a thin white foamy head
S: Tons of nectarines on the nose with a faint funk
T: Balanced and juicy stone fruits replete with peaches, nectarines, and apricots; very clean profile with muted acidity and a very mild funk - incredibly even profile
F: Moderate carb and healthy mouthfeel for a 3 year-old bottle
O: Phenomenal fruited sour from one of the best in the game; this held up incredibly well and with time the flavors really dialed in; hope to have the opportunity to revisit batch 2
