3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Solid sour/funky effort from Oakshire. Poured a murky yellow with a thin white head and a fair bit of effervescence. Aroma is farmyard, horsey, all of the Brett notes are present and accounted for. Acidity is light but present. Fairly one note, but it’s a good note. This is a well done Brett beer.

My Bottom Line:
Floral brettanomyces, white grapes and citrus fruit move into tartness in this slender Wild Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the cloudy straw blond.
-Soft little bubbles add to this brew’s agreeable mouthfeel.
-Wild yeast is not overwhelming.
-The finish is acidic and quenching.

hazy-cloudy yellow-gold with thin, white head and moderate decay. Aroma is Parmesan cheese, tart grape/cherry wine. Flavor is vinous, light grassy hops, bit of hay. hints of farm. Light body with medium carbonation. Overall impression was that it strikes a nice balance between sourness and fruit/malt character.
