4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
poured from bomber into a tulip. Pours a medium amber/strawberry color with a smaller head.
Shows off the sour characteristics right off the bat with some funk, sour cherries, berries, raspberries and some spices.
Medium bodied with a very smooth feel and flavors of sour cherries, raspberries, and some tart stawberries. Finishes nice and dry as well.
This is a real good wild ale. Is definitely sour right now and this was a 2012 bottling.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flavor consists of raspberry, light funk, and moderate tartness. Very well composed and integrated. A little too clean for my taste though, could use more pronounced funk and tartness to be a truly excellent sour. Enjoyable for sure, but for this price I could find many better wild ales with more character.

Pretty good beer. Very pricey. Would like to have it again. Would not buy it again at this price of 20.99. Have seen it for 16.99. Wouldn’t pay that either.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Just get Petrus aged pale ale for half the price and just as good. Thisis a perfectly acceptable and average beer that sold for $20 for a 750 mL bottle. Why?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big bottle shared with friends, Thanks Jason! Orange, pinkish red and cloudy appearance with a minimal, dissipating head. Fruity, tart and sour aroma with raspberries, light wine, oak, yeast, light spice and other fruity esters. Similar flavor with a nice puckering, carbonated feel and a chalky, dry finish. Pretty tasty.

Bottle at home. Pours reddish with a medium white head. The aroma is raspberries, almonds, light acid and fresh fruits. The flavor is oak, grapefruit peel, raspberries, light cellar, citrus and light vinegar. Nice balance between berries and acid. Brett in the finish along with tart raspberries.
