Bottle: Poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was apple and hops. The flavor was funky, sourness, slight fruit like apple, and some hops. Overall, a great combination. A wild ale for those that might not like wild ales.

Bottle. Barnyard yeast, apple, caramel malt, and hay aroma. Cloudy dark amber with giant light tan head. Lightly sweet apple, caramel malt, and moderately bitter dry grass flavor. Mildly lightly funky yeast finish. Nice.

Strykzone (7356) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2016
1 pint 9.4 ounce bottle that was C and Ced. A big fluffy beigeish head. I rolled the bottle resulting in a very cloudy beer. Deep golden brown, like nice tan. Spices are tasted. That includes cinnamon. Earth and caramel. Lots of malts with yeast to match. Not a lot of funk at all and it drinks more like a Belgian Ale.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle shared with dad for Halloween. Snifter pour was golden yellow with big head. Aroma is lemon, grapefruit, funk, horseblanket, biscuit, and wet hay. Taste is similar with the fruit first (citrus) and then the funk, biscuit, and hay. Big carb, finish is dry and unexciting. Not bad.

degbert (1773) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark orange with a high, sticky, heavy, off-white head. Nose is orange, lime, latex, lavender, sage, funk, rosemary, and honey -- there’s a lot going on here. On the tongue, things start off with a surprisingly cool herbal note; it’s almost like camphor or tea tree oil. After that, it gets snarly, funky, and bitter, with some underlying grapefruit and orange caramel notes; I have to say, though, I’m not getting a lot of sourness. Makes me wonder if it’s dropped out somehow. Finish is long and IPA-bitter. I’m just not getting as much wild here as I expected.

3.7
bellco33 (819) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Poured from bottle into a tulip: Pours hazy golden with a huge foamy white head. Aroma of caramel, Belgian funk, coriander, and resin. Taste is mildly sweet, moderately tart, and gets a little bitter on the back end from the hops. Solid beer, light to medium body, good stuff.
