4.1/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours an attractive cloudy straw (borderline blonde) with a small head that displays little to no retention or lace.

Smell: Loads of band aid phenol...probably the strongest band aid note I've ever smelled in a beer sample. Slight lemon tinge, a hint of cherry, and a good dose of barnyard funk.

Taste: Light cherry, slight apricot note, moderate barnyard funk, and a load of band aid.

Mouthfeel: Thin side of medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: Smooth easy drinking wild ale.

While I took the strong band aid note to be a sign of a flaw in the brewing process, I must say that it didn't completely take away from the brew which was still fairly enjoyable.
