brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Pours a brownish/amber color with a tan head. Smells slightly vinegary, as I sort of expected. Sweet bread and toffee malts are there. Some hints of dark fruit and a bit of oak/barrel aroma. The flavor has a nice tartness with notes of vinegar and cherries. A few other dark fruit notes in there as well as the sweetness of toffee malt. Not an overly impressive beer, but in no way bad or offensive.

Bottle thanks to Eric. Pours a clear amber with small off white head. The aroma is sour fruit and cherry. Thin mouthfeel with a dry fruit and lingering dry finish. A good wild ale from 512.

phaleslu (9376) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2012
750 ml bottle shared by Chris- thanks again! Pours a cloudy amber-hued brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, cherries, plums, earth, and brown sugar. Funky, tart, and sweet. Same with the flavor but without as much tartness. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, dry mouthfeel. Solid oud bruin.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
2/25/12. Bottle shared at RBWG 2012. Mild aroma with definite brett and maybe a hint of cocktail with black cherries. Sweet somewhat malty entry followed by brett, black cherry, and cutting dryness. Not bad!

nimbleprop (7480) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 31, 2012
16oz on tap at Falling Rock. Pours a translucent mahogany amber with zero head. Aromas of sawdust, wood chips, grass, collard greens, onion patch, pencil eraser. Tart flavor, grass, herbs, tarragon, medicinal, treated wood. Medium bodied, tart finish. Pretty nice but the wood character is very non-traditional. More of an American take on a wild ale.
