3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Vino Belissimo / Lima OH --- Aroma of sweet yeast and tart grass. Cloudy medium amber with a big, rocky off-white head, thick bands of lace. Taste is slightly sour malt that becomes noticeably sweeter (with butterscotch) on the swallow before tapering nicely with a long sweet and sour finish. Sweeter than many Flemish Ales Iíve had, but solid anyway. Recommended.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Labeled as Reinaert Flemish Wild Ale - the Cunning Fox. Iím curious how this relates to the description for this beer, which appears to need updating.
Pours a nice golden color - cloudy but consistent. Fairly big white head and nice lacing. Very fruity smell - mostly raspberries. Dry, farmhouse taste. Quite nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2oz bottle at FFF. Not sure what version. Unfiltered orange-tan. Foamy white head, laces the glass well. Zest brett sourness. Barnyard mud. A touch brutal in a champagne way. Still maintains some nice luscious carbonation. Dry white wine notes. Approaching American sour test tube tones. Solid, but not perfect. Brett Tripel.

"Surly Bird: pretty weird beer. Not wild.sour in the traditional sense, but thereís all kinds off odd fruity flavors and aromas, some tart, some floral, some sweet. Definitely unique enough to make me want to try other versions of this stuff."

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Surly Bird version on draft at Edmunds Oast. Slight haze on this golden colored brew with a small bubbly white head. Earthy, slight musty aroma with hints of tropical fruits, phenolic spice and a light honied sweetness. Flavor is a bit oxidized and one dimensional with similar characteristics. Not terrible by any means.
