Tastes wild, as the name of the beer hints... Wish it were a bit more sour. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a cloudy orange appearance with a small white head. Bretty, pineapple, orange citrusy, fairly tart, vanilla, tangy aroma. Tangy, slightly vinous, orange, slightly tropical fruity, blood orange, tart flavor. Interesting but not nearly as good as some of Russian River’s offerings.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear yet extremely carbonated golden with a bubbly white head. Tart aroma of apple, pear, banana, and some bread. The initial taste is sour and tart, so much so that it hides other flavors. After this settles, the fruity impressions, mostly apple and pear become apparent. The taste ends with potent sour finish that is long lasting. The sourness masks a great deal of the taste, which shouldn’t be a problem if you like sour. Calling this one dry would be an understatement. Bitter at the end as well. Carbonation is very fizzy and bubbly. Alcohol content is masked very well. If you like this style, you should enjoy this. However, I can’t label this among my favorites of these.

Bottle. Dark gold pour white head. Pretty hoppy aroma, light brett but rather discreet, slightly metallic. Taste is bitter, lots of hops no real acidity surprising. Palate is well carbed, kind of dry. Not bad but not as good as I expected.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL thanks to Matt at Campdown Brewdown. Pours a clear orange with weak head formation. Nose is at first is volatile phenols and plastic moving to spicy Brett, small Orval character with ginger and minerals. Taste is minerally, sweeter, small diacetyl. Still young, little to no funk. Not very aerated in the palate. Still needs a diacetyl rest to let the Brett clean up.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy light amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), moderately yeasty (cobwebs, barnyard), with notes of lemon, gum, band-aid, pepper.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Pretty nice stuff...a "clean" kinda wildness, but in a good way. A little restrained as far as character goes, but enjoyable nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy golden orange with nice head which leaves quickly. Aroma is lemon, grass/hay, hint of Brett funk. Taste is bread with mildly tart lemon, Brett present but not quite what it could be. Palate is quite nice - dry and effervescent champagne carbonation. Hopefully better with age but still enjoyable.
