On tap:
This is a weird one. I went with wild ale as the brewery describes it as a sour. It is tart and fruity but isn’t too sour. The smoky note is subtle and intertwined with the beer as a whole.

Body is quite hazy, a quick look might have you thinking slushy, but a little attention will erase that though. Decent initial head for acsout, medium stacked bubbles that end in a thinnish collar.

Nose actually has a shared base of fruit and wood, upon which a light smoked note comes out. I think the wood is an impression brought on by the smoke. The slightly sour peach note comes on eventually.

Taste hits up front with a tartness that evolves into a peach and melon flavor. Not puckering, more like the tartness of a SweetTart. Smokiness comes as it hits the back of the throat. The smoke plays in more early, and gets pushed further back, nearer the late/aftertaste. This mix of smoke and peach works in most sips, but is a tad strange in others. Overall, I tend to lik it, either way.
