Bottle (750 ml). 2012 vintage. Pours deep yellow straw color with a small poorly retained white head and some lacing. Aroma is slightly funky, with barnyard, oak and slight fruity notes. Taste is not too sour but with complex funky notes, citrus, oak, Brett and balanced sweetness. Mouthfeel is really dry, tart, and crisp. An outstanding wild ale. I loved it.

Yup. Had it twice, both on-tap @ Toronado SD. Mind’s been blown twice. Coincidence? dogfish120love (1331) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 14, 2016
2016 vintage Pours a clear orange with a thin white lacing. The aroma is vinegar, cider/apples, lemon and oak. Rather tart and somewhat lactic with a thin yet fluffy mouthfeel.
As it opens/warms there is definitely some grape and tree bark. This is a well made beer, but it lacks the complexity other beers within the genre zizzybalubba (1869) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Sampled at GABF 2016 (from a 2015 bottle). Pale yellow pour with virtually no head. Aroma of white zinfandel, lemon zest, and oak. Taste is tart with notes of lemon, white grape, and apple cider but quickly fades due to the oaky undercurrent. A great sour. Marheb (5773) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2016
(Provenant d’une bouteille au Toronado S.D): Plusieurs couches bactériennes mentholées, citriques dans un ensemble assez gras et stable. Vraiment pas trop d’acidité, corps entier et verdure complexe qui accompagne tout le long.
