This is blond and cloudy w/ a dense and long lasting white head, just about perfect for the style if you ask me. This is a decent wild ale that strikes me as rather complex but in a way that is interesting more so than good. There is a bit of a musty basement funk to and itís bitter to the point of being borderline metallic. They seem to have been going for something Orval-ish here but miss the mark.

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.
