Bottle shared by Dan. Huge thanks for a big want. Modest oak aroma in the nose with dried fruit, cherries, light vanilla. Nearly flat, very clear Amber to red color. Taste is initially sour with a moderate vinegar note. A moderate alcohol warming presence but never hot. After I become accommodated to the sourness, the taste is moderately complex and full of dried fruit. Really good.

750ml bottle pours a copper color with a bit of head. Funky aroma. Stomach acid sourness at first, which eases with some time to breathe. Nice balance of fruit, funk and sour in typical RR style.

Bottle @ Deans Sticky Bomb Shelter Tasting, thnx to the crew for sharing! *Sidenote* Last sample of the bottle*** Poured a murky, brownish headless beer. Aroma is tarty, hints of vinegar and white fruits are present. Flavor has woody influences, subtle tartness, no real harshness from the vinegar. The tartness picks up after swallowing, making it quite stringent in the finish. Overall very nice, would hope to see this again to have a better sample.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very hazy, dark amber color with ruby red edges and a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lace left behind.
Earthy aroma with lots of oak and musty barnyard funk. Subtle acetic character with prominent barrel notes and similar qualities of an oude brune. Slight sulfuric presence with cheesy funk, berries and other vinous dark fruit notes. Really musty with lots of barrel, barnyard and funky bugs. A bit too much acetic vinegar but it doesn’t overpower the other notes.
Tart and puckering with strong sourness that isn’t overly harsh or acidic. That sulfuric elements comes through but not as strong as in nose. Strong barrel preence with lots of dry oak which is nicely complimented by musty brett notes. Lactic presence in the finish adding more funk. Berries, currant and other vinous dark fruit also come through in the finish. Sour, dry and funky but not harsh. Acetic element isn’t as prominent as expected. Could use some more sweetness but it’s still a really solid wild ale.
