travita (4168) - Frisco, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The look is cloudy, no head, and golden in color. The smell is tart, oranges, some funk, wood, and fruits. The taste is nice sour, very acidic, and good.

Syndicate (92) - Idaho, USA - DEC 25, 2013
First off thanks to Matt at the Coop. Wild west is a golden bond ale that after spending 8 months in wooden Bordeaux barrels is much more amber/orange color. It seems like it needs a bit more time to age and mellow out. Flavor is obvious sour cherries that again i think needs time to reach its peak.

Trappist1 (575) - Diest, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2013
Gusher alert ! 500ml bottle. No foam, no head ("Stillwater"). Bourdeaux wine finish, lambic, fruity, green apples. Very intruiging nose. Taste is pretty much in line with a good sour beer, as is the finish. Great wild beer, appearence a bit unappealing but the fine nose more than compensate this.

Danyel (1076) - Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours murky brown with minimal white head. Looks like swamp water. Smells very strongly of apples, apples pie- cinnamon, nutmeg. Has a good sourness, nothing overwhelming. A definite apple flavor going on, rich, thick, good oak finish. Really solid beer, would definitely get again!

Bottle thanks to lukaduke. Pours a slightly hazed copper with a white head of foam. Aroma has strong acidity and funk. Strong acidity comes through in the taste. Medium bodIed and medium carbonation.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - DEC 19, 2013
An unclear dark golden beer.No head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, wood, vinegar, grapes, and malt. The flavor is sweet with brettanomyces, malt, caramel, wood, and a bit of vinegar, leading to a dry and tart finish. The body is light.
