On tap at Petrol Station. A kind of mix of various brewing techniques, and barrel aging with WT3F, which in and of itself is a hybrid. Really interesting to say the least.

A: Pours a beautifully hazed golden/orange color. At first a two finger white head forms and recedes in a second. Light lace. Love the color, and has the look of champagne.
S: An amazing aroma. Tart, juicy fruits galore. Peach, passion fruits, a bit of acidity and musky, basement like funk. The nose is huge, and while sitting outside, filled the entire table with the aroma. I can just plant my nose in the glass all day.
T: Like the nose, up front is an incredible juicy, and tart fruit flavor. A tart and acidic fruit punch. Peach and fleshy passion fruit, even mango, etc. Almost cider like. Lingering is a musky funk, like a basement cellar. Love it.
M/D: A medium body, with excellent carbonation. Crisp and refreshing, almost tannin like with the fleshy fruit flavors. So enjoyable to drink. I just can't get enough.

This is like an acidic fruit punch, mixed with a cider. An incredible mouthfeel, and just superb to drink. Real Ale is amazing, and this is a reason why. They can do stuff like the Brewers Cut Kolsch and California Common, and amazing experiments like this. Which is more than just unique, for the sake of being unique, but all around excellent.

Look - hazy yellow
Smell - like Belgian beers
Taste - really great for a heavy sour
Feel - I don't get this category. It feels great.

This is a great heavy wild semi-sour ale.

On tap at Mongoose vs Cobra in Houston.

Good shit.

On tap

A- Pours a hazy apricot colored, with a small white head

S- Horseblanket and barnyard aromas, wrapped with fruity esters

T- Apricot and tart dominate the pallet, followed by a mild hop bitterness.

M- Prickly and well carbonated with a dry finish.

O- A decent sour, I don't think it is too extreme in the tart department. I think this was well crafted, however, wild ales do not really mark my fancy like stouts do.
