375 ml bottle, 2013/Batch 2. Served in a Prairie Teku glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with an inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like citrus (orange, lemon), tart fruit, oak, funk, and some hay. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some green apples, grassiness, peaches, and a bit of bready malt. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was a pretty good brew, I liked it. Definitely worth trying if you come across some, I know I’d like to pick some more up the next time I find it! $8.99 a bottle.

"Faaaaaantastic use of brett, oak, and hops...and a nice mix of hop varietals as well. Explodes with barnyard funk, oak, and juicy hop profile, Dry lingering tart finish. Loved every sip."

Bottle at home, bought for £16 from the Evening Star in Brighton. Pours a clear golden colour. Aroma of citrus, pine & brett. Taste is sour, woody, hint of biscuit malt, some fruitiness; finish is dry & hoppy. Top beer from a top brewery....looking forward to going back there in October!

I usually do not care for hopped sours, but this one rocks. Perfect balance. Its not to hoppy to overcome the wonderfull sour nature of this brew. It is still a wild ale sour tart lemon green apple witht the added extras of grassy citrus and pineapple. Great

A hazed blonde ale with a thick frothy white head, In aroma, loads of Brett, horse blanket, fresh cork, nice resinous hops coming through, humic substances, soil, very nice and wild. In mouth, nice fruity citrusy malt with light acidity, good Brett, ground cherries, cork, nice esters, refreshing yet complex. Really liked this. 8.99$.
