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

(Draught) Pours an amber-brown body with a spare white head. Aroma of horse blanket, vinous, wet weathered leather, and oak. Flavor of vinous, sour cherry, oak, raisins, and caramel with a dry finish.. Nicely malty for a sour, which is not something I would ever expect to say for a sour.

On tap @ GABF. Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Aromas of raisin, grape, and caramel. Hints of vanilla, oak, and red wine vinegar. Not bad. Flavor has a nice sweetness to it. Vanilla, caramel, and plenty of dark fruits. Solid red wine vinegar sourness, cherry, raisin, and grape.

Dogbrick (8683) - 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.

rosenbergh (7423) - 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

5000 (6299) - 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!

1st beer of the 12th Anniversary party @ the Houston Flying Saucer .. . pours a deep amber purple .. strong foam .. . uplifting tart nose .. . cherry skin, sour prunes, road, and yeasty leather .. . medium bitters .. . very acidic .. . very nice beer but got tiresome as i went through my glass, probably would have been better if they blended it and calmed it down a bit.. . . Hey sideburns, want some of this milk?

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2012
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.
