More like a lightly funky and tart table beer to me, really liking the hit of natural orange rind on the nose, then onto a tart palate, very light malt base, which is perhaps a touch overcarbonated but otherwise tasty.

Pours a light straw, slightly cloudy with a bit of sediment. Zero head. Smells like orange blossoms and acidic. Nice, fresh, light orange juice like flavor with a simple and sweet base malt profile underlying a good amount of citric acidity, and just a touch of that French Oak. Overall, a great light sour ale. Cheers!

Pours a light golden color. Clear with no head nor lacing.

Aroma is of lemon, citric acid, and green grape.

Taste brings on so much barrel flavor for only 4 percent abv. Moderately tart with a phenomenal white wine character. Bone dry with a bit of melon.

Overall, this is a great beer. One of the better beers I have tried by wilderness. I see it pairing well with halibut with artichoke barigoule. It gets a 94/100.
