030620 2019 Vintage from Morganton. Bright strawberries and a nice tart pucker. Fairly dry making it go down a little quicker. Being mindful of this, take your time and let it warm a bit for a remarkable nose.

Drank 11/23/19 @ Golgi Apparatus.

A gorgeous pink hue on this one. A tart strawberry blast in the nose and on the palate; a bit one dimensional, perhaps, but if you like strawberries you won't mind a bit. Very, very good.

Smells like plastic. Tastes like plastic. Terrible.

This is a strawberry Wild Ale, contrary to what the BeerAdvocate description says. It's really an awesome beer from a group that's doing it right. So lucky to have them so close to where I live. Can't wait to try some of their other offerings.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, yellow session. Aroma has apricot, peach and generic fermented fruits. Taste is sour, quite dry and puckering with fermented fruit flavors.
