Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours cloudy gold with a slight, off-white head. Lightly funky aroma, musty, with some toasty malts. Fairly sweet flavor with some flowery sweetness, Belgian sugars, funky yeast. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes with hints of alcohol, sugary malts, light wood and lingering funk. Interesting and pretty good.

Had this at BCTC after the fest, back at the campsite. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a thin white head. Fuzzy musk and hay, malt and toast. Just boring. Musky plastic. Forgettable. Musk and tart paper on the finish. Drinkable, but bland. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Gold pour, light head. Aroma of honey, perfume, yeast, light hops, wood...unique stuff. Flavor is funky, fruity, perfume, floral...odd, but pretty good. Thanks JW. MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2011
My Bottom Line:DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Biscuity honeyed malts are efficiently dried out by pepper-y brettanomyces, as passionfruit and peach esters develop even more complexity for this elegant Wild Ale .
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A generous head of foam tops the misty golden amber.
-The pillowy effervescence is perfect for the low residual sugar level.
-Fruitiness is also citrusy throughout.
-I would not have said the barrel used to have red wine. The wild yeast seems to have done a great clean-up job.
-This is as complex as it is drinkable. I hope they make it more often!
Tasted during RBWG15 Grand Tasting. 750ml bottle. Last pour from the bottle. Very dreggy. Totally hazy, chalky chunky yeasty aroma. Thin off-white head. Interesting flavor. Some chocolate, mint, seeing the bandaid. Hazelnut. Moderate sweet taste, light sour. Despite the dregs - interesting stuff. drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - JAN 27, 2016
2/21/15. Bottle during RBWG 2015. Amber pour with a nice khaki head. Light fruity aroma, some caramel, lightly tart fruitiness, a little dusty/chalky. Good flavor, a hint of booze showing, Brett, caramel, fruitiness, a dash of tart. Glad to have tried!
