4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a pinkish orange with a small white head. Nose is really bright, pleasant array of tropical fruits and meadow plants. Definite passion fruit, perhaps mango and some citrus rind. Mouth is huge on the sour passion fruit, acidic citrus, even more on the earthy, funky floral flavors. Dandelion petals? Light acidic flavors, all very bright and refined. One of the better American wild ales I’ve had recently. Little oak or brett present, which is nice, really focuses on the bright fruits and acids.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle from adnielsen. Shared in line at New Glarus. Pours a hazy dulled amber orange hue, dulled hazy body with a frothy whitish head atop. Dies to a firm hazy layer, decent lacing and stick around. Aromas are decent pomegranate and funk, firmer funk and cobwebs as we get into it. Dusty, bretty horseblanket with straw. Decent oak, a touch of vanilla hits with straw, decent sourness of lemon, red and dark fruit touches. Initial is firmly sour and bretty, good presence a bit more potent than the nose. Lemony lactic and firm bretty elements are dry, funky, and tart. Lemon, gentle mellow fruit pomegranate, some nice sourness. Funk starts to take over into the backend, dry and oaky, cobwebs with nice sourness to allay an overrun bretty feel. Dry, oaky, some orange with firm brett, gentle pomegranate. Decent to middling sourness, firm oak, bit of vanilla and firm funk throughout. Not as fruity as I anticipated, but still quite lovely. Well done.

Bottle thanks to Nielsen !! Pours a slightly hazy pinkish salmon amber color with a finger or two of fizzy foam. Lots of tart fruit on the nose with funky brett and round floral undertones. The flavor is spot on with great balance between sweet fruit, tart funk and some light lavender floral complexity. Loving this.... great pomegranate flavors there too.

Bottle, 07/11/2013. Pours hazy burnt orange, white fizzy head fades quickly to the surface, thin ring of lacing. Aroma has floral hops merging with lavender notes, apricot and soft pulpy grapefruit, mild lactic yogurt funk, earthy hops. Taste is intense, juicy tropical notes, pulpy, tart and lightly sweet, pomegranate coming through in the middle, bright lemon, mild lactic notes, light grassy hops and biscuit malts in a long fruity finish. Medium body with soft carbonation, round, and a bit addictive. Wow, super tasty.
