I was Surprised to find this on tap at the ginger man in NYC, having previously only had Wild beer co in the UK. The beer was very enjoyable, but I could’t help but think it could have been aged longer. look forward to trying their beers more!

Pours a hazy bright yellow with fizzy white head. Wheat, tartness, spice, and some yeast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes tart initially, dry, and then ends with a sweet note of the apples. Very pleasant.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft... Cajun Cafe Sour Beer Festival 2014... Murky yellow pour with a huge, frothy, white head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet is yeasty and bready, furnishing only hints of both fresh and dusty, musty, fallen apples. Light-bodied with tingly carbonation. Bittersweet flavor that – much like the aroma - only hints at apple. Leans a bit toward the bitter and dry sides of balance in both the flavor and finish. Not really all that fruity. More reminiscent of an English pale ale that provides only minor notes of apple. Moreover, instead of presenting notes of fresh or recently fallen apple, the fruity component in this ale is more like the apple-like esters that result from a lengthy stay in someone’s cellar. Also, this beer’s moderate to medium bitterness seems misplaced. It just doesn’t jive with the rest of what’s going on here.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very hazy gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma is a bit yeasty/appley. Not brett, but maybe a relative. Med body, almost. Flavor is yeast and something clearly wild about it. Apple sort of gets lost. There’s complexity, but I really don’t have words to describe it. It took me a little time to adapt to the flavor, but I do like it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Rustico (Ballston).
The beer is golden with a small, soapy, white head. The aroma offers banana, clove, mild funk, brett, champagne yeast, hints of floral scents. The flavor is much the same. Apple sweetness with a splash of white wine and zesty brett character. The feel is a bit soapy for me, but overall, a solid beer and fun to drink.
