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

Please, Scot, can I have some more? Prunes, cherries, raisin, bit of leather, but nothing offensive. Nice acidic bite that cuts throught the fruity sweetness. One of the best beers Iíve had at FT.

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.

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?
