A gift sample at Capones. Pours an amber orange color with a soapy white head. Has an aroma of fruit and sour. Perhaps some pinot grapes. Frothy sour, nice bitter layer. Not syrup, plenty of texture. One hell of a brew.

25.4 oz bottle. Hazy orange brown with white froth. Nose is sour cherry, lemon peel, oak and horse blanket. Silky medium light with a tang. Taste is toffee, sour cantaloupe, cherry pit and oak vanilla. Not quite as brash as Batch 1 and 4. The big bottle had me scared but i got some help with this one on xmas eve with my daughters.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The pour is a clear golden-copper color with a nice white head and some mild lacing.
S: The nose is quite fruity and almost tropical. A nice blend of sweetness and tartness, with tons of melons (cantaloupe and honey dew come to mind right of the bat). There are some notes of white grapes, pineapple, and a good lemon note.
T: The melon flavor is impressively powerful. It provides a nice sweet note to the beer and combines wonderfully with the tart and lemon notes. Some nice apple, grape, and funk to this beer as well.
M: The body is medium, maybe a bit on the heavy side for a wild ale, but still refreshing and nicely carbonated.
D: I was a bit disappointed by the Perseguidor 5, but this was very, very good. This has flavors that I haven’t often picked up in beers that I’ve tried, and I really enjoyed them.
