Consecration

Thanks go out to Grant for sharing this one a The Brick Store yesterday afternoon.
Right off the top those RR growlers are just superb to look at! For me, that’s where the joy sort of ends.
I think it is difficult to even consider the American Wild Ale style since I currently feel it is pretty ill-defined. So, as a result some may feel that this review is not fair because it is not considering the style but when (as I feel) the style is poorly defined, I think that it’s OK to give an honest opinion based upon the beer standing alone.
Dead pour, but nice garnet color. Nose it simply sinus clearing acid notes. The taste to me is reminiscent of a light malt vinegar and not much else. The ethanoic acid is just overwhelming to me and I get very little else.
I could only manage a very small amount of this and although one might think that you could compare this to a typical Belgian sour I think it lacks the subtlety of many of those. Throw in the ABV and the less than stellar drinkability and I feel this is just not all that good.
