COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Dogbrick (7578) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2012
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.

On tap at Whole Foods Lakewood. The beer pours a brown color with a large tan head. The aroma is full of big cherries, as well as some toffee and vinegar notes. The flavor is along the same line. I get some cherries and other dark fruit, as well as some leather, oak and toffee. As the beer warms I get some vanilla and maple notes, as well as some cocoa. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The cherries really stand out and make this a delicious sour.

Tap at brewery, RateBeer Winter Gathering ’12
Pours an average cheddar orange with a nose of wild cherry and horse blanket. Flavor is berry brett horse saddle. Tingly on the tongue. Not bad at all.

Yep. They’ve gone wild. I had no idea this would be so sour. Not too sour, of course, but wow. It has the meatiness of a Scotch ale, but also has the fermented, wild characteristic of a wild/sour ale that actually softens it up really well. This beer wasn’t carbonated very heavily, at least in my glass, but had it been it would probably put me off. I can’t remember the details of its aroma or flavor’s characteristics, but overall it was a sweet, slightly sour and dense beer. The sweetness and sourness are well-balanced, but bold bold enough, that it’s a strong-palated beer while still being very enjoyable. But wow, what a powerful flavor!

Hazy amber, cream head. Nose is sour, cherry, tart, wood, bugs, and dirty. Great on the palate, heavy sourness, followed by tartness, wood, cherry, mouth puckering finish.

(Draught at the brewery during RBWG 2012) cloudy deep copper pour with fine tan bubbles. Nose of caramel, tart Brett notes, and orange peel, smells just awesome. Taste of caramel, Brett, orange pulp, light scotch presence, very well carbonated. Nice beer!
