750mL shared at Woodshop 8. Pours a full haze peach pour with okay foam. Nose is super sticky twizzlers, sweet potato. Taste is minerally, soapy, sticky...tastes like a drained, infected barleywine. Biting palate with heavy minerals.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a sediment ridden, translucent copper with a white head of foam. The aroma is a strong tart fruity orange zest note. Some dry, herbal notes linger in there, too. The taste is more of a dry, herbal, minty sweetness. Pretty surprised that the tartness in the nose, as strong as it was, just didnít translate into tartness in the taste. Dry finish. Spritzy mouthfeel.some heat pricks the back of the throat after the swallow.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Capones. Pours a very hazy yellowish orange with dense off-white head that held. Aroma is tart and sour with a hint of orange peel. Taste of sweet malts and apples upfront that were overpowered by bitter hops and dry alcohol. Wood and sweet vanilla rose up on the finish. The alcohol was pretty strong and lingered well into the aftertaste. Medium body with spritzy carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Beachwood Brewing. Orange-ish pour with a white head. Nose is sort of sweet up front with some pale malt notes. Light lemon, some leather, grass, and light floral notes. The flavor is lightly tart and fairly dry. Lots of leathery Brett notes, a bit of grass, and some lemon zest. Light malt sweetness. Not bad.

Fantastic nose--like raisinbread, some sort of baked good. Yellow-gold color, light lacing (no head). Herby, slight spice flavor. Not sweet and well-balanced.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a rich, hazy gold with a thin off-white head that leaves some lace. Nose involves some pretty intense barnyard aroma, tart apples, cheesy notes, some dust. Somewhat sweet, quite tart, lightly bitter. Lighter bodied for a strong ale, actively carbed, with a long, earthy dusty yeasty tart finish. To date, the most barnyard quality Iíve encountered in a brew, though I admittedly havenít ventured much in that direction. Itís something else, but I enjoyed it. It works very well with the tartness and body of the brew.

Reinsert Flemish wild ale no year on the label. Almost clear golden color, slight haze. Nice foamy white head, hangs to the glass. Sour yeasty nose. The taste is different, no sourness and not so yeasty. It has an earthy bitterness, good mouth feel. Has a hint of funk in the back. Finishes dry. The Brett lingers a little, nice.
