UPDATED: JAN 21, 2011 500ml bottle thanks to pantanap. Whoa! Cork would have killed Nanoslug if the cage hadn’t stopped it. Damn, that was a close call. Pours a brilliant reddish-amber color with a small off-white head leaving nice foam on top. Nice aroma, fairly woody and leathery, with raspberry. A little buttery. The flavor has raspberry, caramel, oak, butter, and a slight herbal note. Tasty but not as amazing as the hype would suggest. Smooth on the mouthfeel with medium body and soft carbonation. Average acidity. A pretty good American wild ale, but not that amazing.

375mL bottle, courtesy of wickedpete, late into the evening at Shenandoah Throwdown. Thanks so much for saving this for me, Pete! Pours a slightly hazy, orange-amber color; fine-bubbled, creamy white head with attractive lacing. Mild amounts of citrusy tartness, red fruits, and some light doughy notes in the aroma; nothing rough, nothing medicinal, and nicely dry. Medium body; medium-high carbonation; mild tannins, but non-astringent; modest amounts of citrusy tartness, pitty red fruits, and a lively acidity; the tannins add a quiet grittiness to the palate, but this overall is very drinkable and tasty; nicely dry core; some grape notes apparent as well. Medium finish: grapes, lightly tannic red fruits, and lightly tart citrus.

Entered to celebrate my rating number 17,200. Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, malt, wood, and oranges. The flavor is sweet and sour with notes of citrus fruits, brettanomyces, wood, fruits, malt, and caramel. Nice one. Thanks yespr for sharing.
