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

5000 (6599) - 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!

Not usually one to like funked out styles with higher ABV, but this is AMAZING. Damn I wish I had more. Sampled at Texas Craft Brewers and then got second sample just as it ran dry by Real Ale owner (Thanks, Brad!) What, me describe it in eloquent prose? Who the hell do you think I am, Martin?

rosenbergh (10000) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2013
Draught at the Easy Tiger, Austin, TX. Dark red brown colour with a tiny light pink head. Sourness, mild tartness, some sweet maltiness and red berries in the aroma. Promising. The flavour is sour. It's also full of red berries, sweetness and mild tartness. Alcohol well hidden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nellycale (212) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2013
On tap at Strangeways in Dallas. Pours a brownish-amber color with a medium off-white head and minimum lacing. Aroma of malt and dark fruit. Full-bodied. Taste of earthy malt, tart black cherries and salty yeast. The finish is peat malt up front with a tart cherry aftertaste. Weird vinegary sour holds on the palate. Strange, interesting, tasty and good. Good alternative to a Flanders red ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
