What was formerly Oulawed has been pirated! McCaws secret booty was laid back late last summer in retired Dry Comal Creek wood. The cache stashed, the Outlaw dashed out and the Bandito cashed in with a deliciously dry, slightly sour red ale still with a malt backbone, wisps of brush honey and the unmitigated funk of a Texas Wild Ale.

22 oz. bottle shared in 2012 with Tmoney99 from notes. Pours a hazy deep reddish amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart/sour cherry, some orange citrus, acetic acid, honey, caramel, some funk, interesting, but not quite a standout for me.

Deep, brilliant reddish brown colored pour. Small off-white head. Little splotches hang out after it falls. Aroma is a nice mix of sour and malt. Taste is the same with a bit of sweetness to balance out the sour.

Bottle at home with friends. Pour is murky brown pour with a small tan head and good lacing. Huge acidic aroma - peachy, oaky, caramelly, bready , tannic, red wine, and lacto. Taste is peachy, green apples, pears, lemony, acidic, oaky, lemon notes, caramel, and bready, with a big sour finish. Medium body with high carboantion. Pretty sour stuff.

A - pours a strawberry prune juice brown with a tiny ring of white head. S - smells like a sour brown. And... Some strawberry notes, cheap pink wine, brown sugar, art red berries and cherries, leather and tobacco. Light lemon juice. M - sharp bitter tartness up front, flat sweet middle and a dry end. T - interesting combo of grassy bitterness and sharp sour brown. This tastes a bit like a seedy bran muffin. But with Acetic right up front and lemon juice. The palate rolls to the tobacco, canned cherries and underripe berries with brown sugar to a malty almost robotussin palate. End it bitter grasses, astringent and mineral water. O - good but a bit astringent/cough syrupy/bitter. 3.2

Wow, tons of acetone aroma. Sharp bitterness on the palate, man this is bad. Not as much nail polish on my tongue. And it wasn't like this on tap at the release. Sad :(

Hugely overcarbonated beer which is understandable for a sour, but it kills alot of complexity.

Tap at Freetail. The smell is wood, tart, fruits, complex, hitting all the right notes. The deep golden in color with a white head. The taste is tart, fruity, wood, and good.
