4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
If you get this in a bottle, be sure to have a thirsty towel handy, as my sample fizzed quite a bit. When it settles down, it pours translucent apricot with a rather thick eggshell head. Aroma presents delectable sour grape, pineapple, mango and fresh malt tones. Fruit is the main player in the flavor, again with pineapple (I love pineapple!), mango and grape, fairly sour with a malty undertone and a dry wine finish. Mouthfeel features decent body and OK fizz. A serene wild ale - if that is not an oxymoron.

Bottle courtesy of Travlr. Poured a hazy light straw colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is light acid pear citrus. The flavour is moderate to light acid, dry mineral, grainy, vinous palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. All the pleasure is up front. A little light in the palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home thanks to my summer secret Santa. Thanks! Pours a clear, light golden color. Little head fizzles and dissipates quickly. Aroma is Brett, faint citrus, light oak, and faint funk. Taste is faint Brett, light grape juice, faint oak, lightly tart with a hint of salinity. This is very smooth. Light body, thin mouthfeel, high carbonation. An enjoyable beer! Nice!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pours hazy and yellow with a gushing, foamy, white head. The aroma features funky notes of horseblanket, worn leather, woodiness and a fruity, citric component Ė Iím going with lemon. Light-bodied and watery with zippy carbonation. Lemony, tangy, salty flavor followed by a slightly salty aftertaste. Salty? Could be my taste buds needing a reboot, but thatís what Iím picking up here. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!
Note: Iíve picked up saltiness in two beers tonight. Neither was a gose or an oyster stout. My taste buds may be tainted.
