A: The beer pours a hazy golden amber color with a small white head. S: The nose features a Mild vinegar note as well as a distinct Cheerios character. There is some wet oak and grass as well as the ever popular straw/hay. A little booze and a mild malt sweetness. T: The flavor starts out with a slight sweetness followed by plenty of grass, green apple, and lemon zest. As with the aroma, some vinegar is present, as is the cereal sweetness and flavor of Cheerios. M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: While not atrocious, this was not very good by any means.

mcberko (14979) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at Bear Republic, pours a hazy amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma is very complex, with loads of wild yeast, oak barrels, and some lightly tart fruits. Flavour is exceedingly complex, full of an amazing blend of wild yeast, followed by oak wood barrels, and very subtle lightly tart fruitiness. The wild yeasts create an amazingly complex and elegant flavour profile. Highly drinkable, not revealing any of the 9%. Awesome stuff.
