Mysterium Verum. Scots Gone Wild marks the initial offering from Real Ale Brewing Company in the world of sour beers. Real Heavy, our strong scotch ale, was aged for 6 months in American oak barrels, during which time it underwent a dramatic refermentation due to the presence of a very special cocktail of wild yeast and bacteria. The end result is a dry, cherry-pie sour, with a subtle oak character and a bold tartness. OG: 20˚P

Sampled at Great American Beer Festival 9/24/15. Sour, light funky aroma with notes of cherry, caramel, toffee, oak, light earth and light yeast. Similar flavor, with a tart, puckering feel. Nicely done.

On tap at The Pour House. Red brown pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is grapey, vinous, wood, and caramel. Taste is woody, more wine, caramel, awkward sourness, and bad fruit. Sour finish.

Pours a dark reddish brown with ivory head. Funk, oak, and dark fruit on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more funk. Somewhat one-dimensional.

Growler. Dark brown pour, minimal tan head, swishes with lace. Soured Scotch Ale, wtf? Reminds me of a good burgundy sour. Barrely smoothness reminiscent of a RR sour(!). Impressive.

5000 (6400) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Hand bottle:   Deep reddish caramel, thin sudsy off-white head little lacing.   Looks like an aged sour red brown.   Old and young cherries on the nose, sweet vinear, slight oak.   Similar tongue, slightly acidic.   As it warms a bit of raisin and dark pitted fruit come out.   Liking this more than I thought I would.   Dry, leaves my mouth watering.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes like a young Goudenbond, slightly less eccentric.   Lingering sweet and dark pitted fruit like vinegar sourness.   Unexpectedly good.   Thanks for sharing Tex!
