The aroma has much wild yeast, and a hint of fruit. As I sip, I also sense caramel malt. The taste is moderately sour with some sweetness. Very smooth. Excellent beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rated on 9-14-2013 at Fort Wayne, IN RateBeer gathering (Corked and caged bottle) The appearance of this beer is a small fizzy tan head that quickly dissipated, amber body with a red tint, very little carbontion observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, yeast, dark fruit, sour, and tart. The flavor is sweet, sour, lightly tart, malt, and dark fruits. The mouthfeel of this beer is light carbonation and it is medium bodied. Overall, if one likes sour tasting beers, try this one.

(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Copper pour with a thin white head. Dry funk and slightly sweet aroma. Flavor starts off with a good amount of sour and farmhouse funk, then dries out and moves to a lightly sweet finish with a tart aftertaste. Incredibly impressed.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2015 Bomber into oversized brandy glass, dirty reddish-brown color with tan head. Aroma of cherry tartness, green apples, red wine, wood, dried fruits (raisins, plums, dates), vinegar and brown sugar. Taste starts off fruity sweetness, then quickly goes into sour/vinous notes with berries, spices, vanilla, tannic oak, hay, yeast funk, light chocolate and port. Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry with light sour tart finish. Very good barrel aged wild ale, my sour loving wife agrees.
