(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a slightly dense deep copper color with a violent carbonation of microbubbles. The loud fizz supports a thick white head of foam.

S- The dry clean aroma has a faint hint of yeasty esters and mineral notes.

T- The nice dry crisp flavor is smooth with a tartness in the finish. There are some unripe pear notes that start to come through with a green apple hint in the finish.

M- The light mouthfeel has a full creamy fizz in the finish and no alcohol heat.

O- This beer is nice yet very subtle flavors and the brett is not overpowering but it will be interesting to see if this chances over time.

Served In: Tulip

750 ml bottle picked up at the Piggly Wiggly in Homewood, AL. Served up in a tulip.

A: Pours up a very vibrant copper colored body. By vibrant, I mean this beer kind of glows while sitting there on the table. The body is clear with a very active, stream of carbonation streaming up the center of the beer. The pour got me about a finger of foamy, white head. Doesn't last long though and no lace to speak of.

S: Just a huge dose of Brett. I am just blatantly and all consuming Brett. Plenty of barnyard and some light funk. Light fruity, citrus note, maybe orange peel. Little bit of apple skin and pear meat. A little acidic on the back end.

T: Starts off with that punch of Brett. Dirty, funky, barnyard melds into the fruits. Pear, apple, a little squirt of citrus. Very yeasty, comes back with a light breadiness, brings a touch of sweetness as well. Tartness in this beer is very mild, just a little bit from fruit notes. Finishes up with a little white pepper spicy quality and notes of herbs.

M: Medium bodied. Carbonation starts off very aggressive, but dies off quickly. Never seen a beer go still so quickly. Acidic, lightly tart and sweet on the palate. Dries out pretty nice with just a light sting on the back of the throat. That sting warms up with the ABV and just radiates throughout. Aftertaste is just some mild fruity tartness and a little funk.

OA: Not bad. Lays in the barnyard arena more than a tart one. Still has plenty of flavor and a nice nose. Lacks a bit in the feel with the carbonation wierdness. All in all, I would drink again. Drinkability holds up well and doesn't bore the palate at all. I dig it.

Price: $14.99 Served In: Tulip

$14.35 for the 750ml corked and caged bottle.

It pours a slightly hazy and bubbly coppery orange with about an inch of foam. It's also a very loud beer.

It smells of Brett, and has some bitter and se.mi sweet notes. Maybe a hint of tartness.

Lightly bitter on first sip, the Brett at this stage is mild. Other points to mention, there's a very light tartness here that may also develop over time. The finish is a mix of basically all I've mention with sweet and some fruity tartness most noticeable.

Medium bodied with the carbonation at...sometimes lively, sometimes mild. Yeah, it starts of in the sips as mildish and finishes with quite a bit of fizz.

This is good. I have to say I didn't expect an overly sour Wild when I saw the name...Domesticated Wild Ale. ;^)
