3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very bright golden in color with a full, billowing white head. Fruity and sour aroma contains lots of grape and apple. I find some spices, pear and yeast as well. Very enticing. The taste is dry and tart. However, it doesnít contain the amount of tartness that is found in others of this style. More pear and apple are found, with some minor grape coming through more at the end. Grape aftertaste lasts for awhile, although it isnít very strong. The alcohol content hides itself well. Medium in body, sticky in texture, while having some lively carbonation. I like this one. It isnít as extreme offering in this style. While some might like this more because of this, I enjoy the ones that hit you with strong sourness much more.

Flemish Primitive Wild (Surly Bird). Bottle from Proof. Pours a golden straw color with an inch and a half of bubbly white head. Sticky lacing from the very beginning. Head settles into a thick collar of differing size bubbles, clumps of head across the surface, and thin head where the clumps arenít present. Aroma is apple and grape sweetness, lots of yeast funk, and lots of dry grass. Taste is the grass and funk playing fairly well together. Light carbonation and medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel.

Bottle. Tons of carbonation. The bottle started overflowing after I just cracked the top. Hazy orange with a big off-white head. Sweet Brett and funk aromas. Surprisingly sticky-sweet with some candi and horse blanket.

I was, at first, terrified by this beer because of a lot of very ugly floaters. Big, scary, yeasty things. Not for the faint of heart, and cannot be avoided by a proper pour. But when I poured it, the floaters broke up and vanished. The taste was good and malty. I am not a huge fan of super yeasty and malty beers, but this one was very drinkable for me. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
750 ml corked and caged bottle, labeled as Reinaert Wild Ale. Aroma is bretty, cheesy, dusty, cotton candy, bready, piss--really funky. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a large white head with excellent retention; leaves some sheeting lace. Taste is extremely yeasty, wheat cracker, lemon rind, piss. Ends on a lightly hoppy bitter note. This is crazy weird shit. Highly carbonated. This literally smells and tastes like piss. WTF? At first it just smelled like a nice bretty wild ale, then this piss character presented itself. Iím not talking about a nice catboxy American hop character, but like a dirty menís urinal piss smell. I thought it would go away, but it just got stronger. Seriously, what the fucking hell? Second thoughts, 10 minutes later: the piss character plateaued and then dropped finally. Itís still there, but itís not as off-putting. These are the most fluctuating scores Iíve ever given to a beer, I think. I had it in the upper 3ís, then dropped it all the way down to 2.2, then I raised it up to 2.9. Sit, Ubu, sit! Good fox.
