pours hazy red with white head, nose of vinegar, brett, berries. flavors are mildly sweet and tart, mild dark berries, vinegar, watery finish. light, spritzy, and refreshing. but lacks a big sour, acidic, fruit, and barrel presence.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy reddish color with a thin head. Berry aroma, yeast, and slightly sour. Wild yeast wasn’t sour or anything (would have been even better), but it did make it tart. Really easy to drink and a solid beer. I agree with Pantanap that Wild Blue was better. This beer is worth a shot though. I believe it was $6 draft.

pantanap (3357) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2009
Tap at the brewpub... Pours a dark, mostly hazy, Reddish amber brown with a thin milky white head... Red berry aroma with a mild degree of mustiness and yeast... Sofly carbonated red berry flavors with not too much wild yeast influence but still slightly tart, enjoyable, and refreshing. Pales in comparison to wild blue, another wild fruit beer.
