Sampled on 9/2/2012. This wild/sour ale pours a hazy light golden yellow color (apricot) from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is apricot, tart, slightly funky, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied sour/wild ale. The malts are fruity, tart and sweet. Nice apricot flavors, they mix well with all that tartness. Some barnyard and some citrus as well. Truly an amazing beer for a most unlikely source. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is tart.

750ml bottle split. Huge nose of funk, fruit, and a farmhouse doughiness. Extremely tart and sour that balanced by the smoothness of apricot. Not sweet at all. Finishes dry and puckering. This is one of the best balanced sours I have had.

On tap at Rackhouse, pour was very hazy yellow-orange with thin to no head from the acidity, aroma brought huge lemon, acid, nice slight funk, vanilla and oak, sweetening into some apricot as well. Tate is mouth blasting sour, puckering acidity with a big lemon, lactic, and slightly funky note, hints of vanilla and oak, nice sweet apricot towards the end, drying out well. While it’s not complex, it is super sour, and very delicious, right up my alley.
