Served on tap at the Oak Park Micro Brew Review. Pours a hazy yellow with some head and nice lacing. The smell is deliciously tart with heavy vinegar , raspberries and cherries paired with heavy oak. Some mild accents of vanilla are mixed in there as well. The taste is very tart and acidic loaded with berries, cherry, oak, vinegar, vanilla. Mouthfeel is light and effervescent. Overall, another tasty sour from Destihl. Plenty of flavor for those into acidic sours like myself.

Thanks to Adam (TheAlum) for this one at DLD 2012.

A - Pours a golden yellow color, fizzy white head, thin collar.

S - Tart fruity citrus, funk, lemon peel, pineapple, light acidity.

T - Light fruits, funk, citrus, acidity, tart/sour. Pretty straight forward here, and not quite as enjoyable as some other Destihl wilds I've had. Finish is light fruity sweet tarts.

M - Light body, good carbonation, dry finish.

O - A nice sour, but didn't blow me away like a couple of other Destihl sours have. That said, I'd drink this often if it was around, and I look forward to trying future batches.
