1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Flight at brewery. Dark auburn with thin head. Smells a little pooey. Not my thing. Flavor somehow reminds me of poo, too. Dry. Sorry, just not my thing.

Keg at the brewery. Clear amber. Aroma of toffee and brett. Taste is brett, earth, cherries, oak. Medium bodied, hot, bitter.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Mekong. Like the lablel. Like the backstory. Didn’t much care for the beer. Wild gone wrong for me. Aroma was caramel malts, some woodsy notes, vanilla, faint hop, and everything overwhelmed by strong brett notes. Flavor matched. An oddly sweetish, somewhat alcoholic, brett bomb. Don’t get me wrong, I like brett, but this overwhelmed the rest of the brew. Could be good blended back into something else. Perhaps if some more sour funk had been present, it might have worked. Too bad, normally love Strangeways.
