Hazy salmon with a fuzzy white film.

Smell starts with funky cheese and wood spiked with spiced cherry and pie crust.

Really tasty cherry, peach, and lemon hits the tongue, bringing lactic acid while pie crust funk rounds out the flavor profile that has a tart, sharp edge and dry finish. It's almost too acidic, but quite enjoyable.

750 cage & cork bottle poured into a snifter
Bottled3/16/16

A- pours a crystal clear bright golden color with a soft pink hue, one finger foamy white head reduces to a ring around the glass

S- lactic funky aroma with notes of yogurt, dried hay, barnyard and earthy yeast. Undertones of wet oak and tart cherry

T- big punch of mouth watering tartness up front, with notes of lemon peel, some yogurt-like lactic notes & undertones of wet oak. Mid-palate gives some light notes of tart cherry. The finish is bone dry, with more puckering tartness and flavors of lemon, cherry and oak

M- medium body with light carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a dry-puckering finish

O- plenty of tartness throughout, at times found it a bit hard to find the cherry notes. Good thing I'm sharing this one!

Poured out a clear, fizzy pinkish hue with a small head of foam. It smelled of cherry and tartness. Nice dark cherry flavor with a blend of sweet and tart. Also, some lemon and funkiness.

750ml bottle, bottled 3.16.16, poured into a Casey Brewing & Blending oversized wine glass. Enjoyed on 11.20.16, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a pale pink, salmonish color, hazy and lightly cloudy with a finger of white head that has very little retention and lace. The aroma is nice, lots of funk, distinctive Casey cultures, a bit yogurty, plenty of tart cherry with some lemon peel and a bit of earthier oak. Very heavy on the funk and bugs, pretty simple, but enjoyable. The flavors are in line with the nose, tart cherry and some crisp lemon zest with plenty of funk and bugs, yogurty at times, but distinctively Casey , a bit of oak and some mineral water linger. The mouthfeel is nice, light body with active carbonation, coats moderately well with a tart and dry finish.

Verdict: A nice cherry wild ale from Casey, the saison base doesn't exactly come through, but the fruit is nice and the beer is very refreshing.
