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

Draft. Aroma is sour with some oak. Appearance is a dark brown with no head. Taste is dark malt over powered with sour and ends very oaky. Palate is sour and dry. Overall, a good sour... Would have liked less oak though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GABF, 2012, Friday Evening. Simple and straightforward, this beer has a medium sweet malt flavor as well as some fruit flavor, combined with some flavor and aroma of balsamic vinegar which works very well in this beer. Good and sour, and surprisingly strong. Dry wood and yeast in the finish.

On tap at RealTail 2012. Pours a cloudy brown with a small frothy off white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is oak, cherry, funk, and peat. Thin mouthfeel with a light tartness, vinegar, oak and nice sour finish. Wow really enjoyed this one. A very impressive sour from Real Ale.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2012
On tap. Brownish amber brew with a bit of off-white head. Nose is complex and all over the place - cherries, oak, vinous, light smoke. Big cherry pie filling flavor - smooth and wonderfully tart.

Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Brownish-amber color with a medium off-white head and spotty lacing. Aroma of malt and dark fruit. Full-bodied with flavors of earthy malt, cherries and yeast. The finish is peat malt up front with a tart cherry aftertaste. Above average overall.

Sampled at GABF. Nose is nice with the taste of wild. Cherry and caramel throughout. Different for a sour but well done.
