3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle with commonmac. Hazy yellow orange with medium white head. Tart and funky nose. Sour, yeast, very tart, spicy. Effervescent. Very aggressive, but you get used to it. Fresh feel. Fuzzy, winey. I liked it more as I continued to drink it, although not quite my favorite style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
perfectly clear.. straw gold.. big white head .... nice lace and fantastic carbonation.
Nose is so much better than my last bottle a long while ago... very funky and plenty of lemon and horsey notes.
Big and bretty.. of course.. funk with dry leather.. reminds me of a super funky saison.. sour remnants are more from the lemon elements.. no where nearly as sour as any other RR American Wild.. as it warms.. so does the funk.. some "cheese" develops.. sorta moldy.. vineous without any wood.. grape skins..
I needed to keep grounded on this one and remember that no wood touched this beer.. purely stainless. It is a science experiment that I am damn glad that I had numerous opportunities to enjoy.

@ Russian River 16-3-7: En mycket torr öl med härliga syrliga toner och en massor brett. Underbar.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours light pale yellow, cloudy, thin film of foam. Aroma is yeasty, feels saisony but also soft and fruity-creamy. Taste is sour with barnyard and berries. Bit of bitterness and that is left also later and keeps lingering. Dry and tingling the roof of my mouth. Combined with fruitiness and subtle sour, this one is really multy-layered and actually keeps growing on me. Solid.

bottled on June 2015, surprisingly smooth even though it’s only been aged for 6 months. I am really loving this; pours pale yellow with white head, it has aroma of clove and dough. the flavor is a blend of citrus and cheese; it’s very delicious and well balanced.
