AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL18/20
S – HUGE nose of lactic bright acidity, grape skins, earthy, tree bark, sweet fig newtons, lemon bars and cheesecake. Very acidic tartness and had me thinking this was going to be a vinegar forward Upland beer. Thankfully, I was wrong.
T – WOWWOWOWOWOW Barely a hint of vinegar like none. BOOM apricot, mango, floral honey-dew, rose hips and peaches. Most importantly, the most muscadine forward beer I’ve ever had. Maybe this is like some child-hood throw back but I used to eat these things growing naturally in Alabama as a kid growing up like growing out of ’strip pits’ and really gross conditions and this was like a muscadine beer. Straight up grapey, peach fuzz muscadine earthy beer with tart wine-like acidity that hits you hard at first and sticks around just incredible.
M – Explosive carbonation but has a 7up like soda carbonation that really blends well with the tart fruit.
O – This was easily my favorite American Wild ale ever made. Incredibly juicy, wine forward everyone should try this beer once and now Pizza Boy is on my must stop list anytime I’m passing through PA.
