Poured into a RR tion glass

Hazy golden color with a huge head. Settled into a healthy layer with massive, thick lacing.

Smell is damp basement and overripe fruit.

It's really hard to describe the initial taste. I'm picking up some spice, almost peppery along with the usualy funk. The 'sour' isn't overwhelming, this isn't the kind of beer that makes my face contort, but it is a sour, make no mistake. The swallow leaves a warm spot on the back of my throat, it is 10% after all.

Mouthfeel is much thicker than most wilds. It really coats the mouth and leaves you wanting more.

This is really enjoyable. I would definately seek this out again.
