375ml bottle shared by Brad. Pretty awesome beer. Soured, intense, more so than the bourbon, but still captures some of that as well. Biting sharp sourness. The bourbon barrel and deep malt flavors are sort of there, but sort of eaten away too. Really cool beer.

Bottle (375 ml). Shared by Pier-Luc, thanks! Clear amber with no head and no lacing. Aroma is fruity with coconut, bourbon, tartness notes, wood and vanilla. Taste is also fruity and moderately sour along with bourbon, caramel, wood, coconut and light apple. Medium body. Very low carbonation. Kind of winey mouthfeel. Interesting beer. It would be weird if this was not advertised as a Wild Quad, but that’s exactly what it it. The Crooked Stave signature is recognizable here.

hopscotch (8541) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Mostly clear mahogany ale with a small, short-lived, white head. The nose is a mingling of bourbon, caramel, ethanol and red wine. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The sour flavor provides light bourbon and vinous burgundy notes. Finishes super tart, boozy and warming. Thanks to ctipping for sharing this world class effort!

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2013
Slightly hazy brown colour, dissipating white head. Quite sour aroma, vanilla, wine, wood and redcurrants. Quite sour flavour, vanilla, mint, citrus peel and peanuts. Sour finish, quite refreshing, berries, vanilla, caramel, gooseberry and acetic acid. Nice enough sour - but while named a Wild Quad, I’d rather call it a Sour Ale than a Quad - I suspect people buying this expecting a Quadrupel style beer will be rather disappointed.
(From 37.5cL bottle @ ZZT 8b, Oirschot. Thanks for sharing, joes!)

Flesje tijdens zzt’13, bruine kleur en niet helder. Ruikt naar wijn, hout, zuur. Smaakt ook zo.

Share thanks to Homer321 via StalinCat. Pours a dark, reddish brown with no head. Chocolate, alcohol, sour aroma. Sour, lightly acidic, light chocolate, not much bourbon/barrel character, smooth.
