Pretty nice wild with huge brett character. Tons of bandaid and medicinal brett with a light tropical fruit character and a very very slight tartness on the backend.

(bottle - 375 ml) Orange copper pour. The same dry tart funky aroma. Acidic and vinegary flavor with a sad lack of mango in it. Can get the barrel and Chardonnay notes but I missed the mango.

375 ml bottle. Almost clear golden body with an off-white head. Complex in aroma, fresh fruit, acidic fruit, malt and funky. Flavor has some acidic refreshes, several types of fruit including citric, acidic and ripe fruit. Some cellar notes and funky. Fine body and good I aftertaste. A really nice and refreshing one.

Look: Pours with average size off-white bulky head. Fast retention, mostly diminishing within minutes. Leaves moderate lacing. Rich amber colour, mostly clear, slightly hazy. Carbonation visible.

Smell: Fruity, tropical fruits to be exact (pineapple mostly, some melon and mango). Then comes the sour part and big leathery brett funk. Also some white wine in there, maybe a bit of sulphur notes. Spicy. The smell is rich and fresh enough, a good mix for a wild ale.

Taste: Sour and cane like sweetness, fruitiness. Then comes the moderate sweet caramelish middle malt part and then the brett leather funk takes over. Some hints of white wine just before it goes down the throat. Maybe some tart too. Aftertaste filled with light bitterness - pleasant. Missing some of the fruitiness from the smell.

Mouthfeel: Medium dry body. Surprisingly crisp carbonation, adds that fresh character. Drinkable.

Overall: Solid wild ale, some notes from white wine and a little less from mango, interesting mix, worth a try. Brett and sour arenít overwhelming, but do fill most of the aroma.
