mattyb83 (736) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Bottle. Deep brown with some ruby highlights and a large khaki head. Mouth watering aroma with plenty of cherries. Seems like it may be pretty tart, but alas it wasn’t. Taste was sweeter with some cherry pie, kool whip, and coconut. Pretty good, but not the tart character I was expecting. Slight dryness towards the finish. This may be a bit thin, but it is still a solid beer.

pantanap (3351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2012
512 wild bear. 750ml bottle again thanks to mar. Thanks dude... Murky somewhat non-transparent deeper toffe hued elixir and topped with a thin soapy white head... Red fruit and berry with a semi-tart, pineapple cherry Brett forwardness through the middle and backend... Flavors are lacking in a sense with a mostly earthy Brett influence. Lighter bodied but could be improved by more of a sour quality which was somewhat lacking 8/4/7/3/13
