Thanks Denise! Bright and peachy right off the bat as fresh fruit overwhelms my olfactory senses. Yeasty component smells & tastes "sparkling" if that makes sense. Flavor profile is bold, yet delicate. Refined, yet wild. Strikingly similar to a fresh bottle of Fantasia and definitely better all around, but honestly not by that much. Damn, this was tasty.

Bottle shared by bmanning. Thanks Ben.
The beer is hazy and yellow with a fleeting white head. The aroma is very nice, offering peaches, stone fruits, and a prominent sour/tart character. Fruity, complex, acetic, wonderful. The finish is bold, offering a bit of a vinegary sting. Really tasty beer. Glad I got to try it.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375mL bottle for my 2000th beer. Big thanks to Doodler for this big time want.
A: Fizzy clear gold. No head at all, though. Great color, pretty much still in every other aspect, like wine.
N: Super sour lactic acid. Apricots and peaches. Vinegar. Some residual sugar. Raspberry and acetone. Oak. Quite nice if not overly complex.
T: Really shines here, unlike the nose. Lots of peaches still. Apricots and lemons. A good balancing sweetness which seems to be a hallmark of American Wilds. Oak is adding a nice balance. Unlike the sharp nose, this has a pleasant sour quality to it.
M: Crisp and light on the tongue. This is exactly what I want from American Wilds. Not the heavy dense liquid I’m so often getting.
O: A shining example of the style, though I wish the nose had held up like the body. I’m still thrilled to have tried this.
