3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a minimal-sized off-white head over a semi-clear dark amber to brown body. The aroma is rather vinegarish, with some dark fruits and a nutty touch. A bit simple, and that goes for the flavor too. Dried fruits, vinegar and nuts in the flavor, quite sourish. Dry, sourish mouthfeel with a very soft carbonation. Almond hints, borderline cherry, towards the finish. Well, not my kind of sour beer, but still quite nice. 131026

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from Liz. Pours lightly ruddy copper with a fizzy transient head. Aroma is dark berry with oak and sour aspects. Med + body. Flavor is very, very tart sour. Lots of dark berry and some brett and some oaky wood, and some vinosity. Wish I’d saved this one to share. Fkin nails the style. Tannins and red grapes abound. God bless InBev for not screwing this up. Barnyard rules.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I made sure this one was ice cold to avoid gushing and opened it over the sink just in case. No beer lost, but it did foam up quite aggressively.
A: The pour is a cloudy pink-orange color with a very fluffy head that is mostly white but perhaps has a pinkish hue to it.
S: Quite a bit of fruitiness to the nose. Raspberries and strawberries seem to be the most noticeable, along with a hint of lemon and grapes. A fair amount of oak to this one as well.
T: Surprisingly vinous in terms of the flavor. Lots of oak, red grapes, raspberries, and blackberries. The sourness is not as intense as other wilds, but the tartness is nice.
M: The body is medium and the carbonation is very plentiful, perhaps too much so at first. But as the beer calms down from its initial gushing, it is more pleasant.
D: A pretty easy to drink wild ale. Not overly sour, but good fruit character and a nice bit of oak to it. Glad to have another bottle.
