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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from an old bottle, batch 1 likely.
Aroma is moderately fruity with a medium light stone fruit note. Some light tropical fruit with light oak. Medium acidity with some light citrus notes.
Pours a hazy, pale gold with a small, thin white head that recedes to the edges where it lingers for a bit. No lacing and small legs.
Flavor is moderately acidic with some medium light peach and stone fruit notes. Light tropical fruit with medium light citrus. Light oak with low bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a nice beer. Good fruit notes that have lasted surprisingly well considering the age. Acidity is a bit sharp, but not too over the top.

1/V/14 - 37.5cl bottle @ ThirstyBird’s place - BB: n/a (2014-457) Thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing the bottle!
Little cloudy yellow to beige beer, small off-white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: mouldy cork, musty basement (cellar), pretty off, little fruity. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: very sour, lots of citric acidity, bit dirty, mouldy, little fruity. Aftertaste: mouldy again, very acidic, citric and lemony. Not a big hit. Another US sour with fruit that disappoints. :(
