3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouring at the Night of the Funk. Pours a hazed amber gold with a medium sized white head. Big sweet brett, cheesy funk. Smooth, creamy, almost milky. Wheat, light brett. Soft wheat and toast on the finish. Not bad at all, but I was hoping for a lot more from this and it didn’t come through.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is fruity, mainly pear with hints of lemon and tangerine, plus yeasty and malty undertones. Pours a fairly hazy amber with a fluffy and rather persistent white head. The bottle popped when I opened it, but at least I didn’t have a miniature Old Faithful. Flavor fills the palate with fruit, apple, pear and tangerine, plus malt and yeast notes and just a whisper of butterscotch. Lively, fizzy texture has good, firm body and leaves a tingling fruity, malty finish that carries a butterscotch hint. Get knee-deep knee-deep knee-deep in this beer!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Overall a decent farmhouse/saison - not really a wild ale at all - too many components lost or missing all together for it to be considered an "American Wild ale"

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks again, Blake! Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a small white head. Aroma of straw, bretty funk, pale and sweet malts, and some dried apricots. The flavor has the same malts, funk, straw, and dried fruits, but also some tart, citrusy fruits. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a fruity, funky mouthfeel. Might get better but a good beer now.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Split with James, Dallas, and Bobby. Pours light, pale yellow with a thin, fizzy white head. Aroma of lemon, sublte funk. Thin bodied, with a slightly carbonated palate. Not tart in the least. Did not care for this at all.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin white disappearing head over golden pale. Aromas of mixed fruits and citrus, with sweet malts, oh yea, there was some funk lost somewhere in the background. Nice balance of sweet breads, with combo of fruits yielding to the citrus flavors. Hardy any presence of sour, Brett, or acid. Great beer, but I’m disappointed. No farm and nothing sour.
