Had it on tap at Nomad World Pub. Nice aroma. Very good beer. Not sure if it is worth 20 a bottle but still a decent beer

Delicious sour beer!!! I only had a small taste at a beer share but would love to drink this again. Sour in the nose up front and following thru all day long in the flavor.

Great dark caramel/brown/red color with a small dissipating head. Aroma of tart sour cherries with a backing of sweet malts. Taste really follows suit with the aroma, hits up front with tartness but has a rather smooth finish. I like this wild better than Surly 5, which had more of a dry finish reminiscent of a Cabernet dry red wine. Really glad I found a bottle of this!

2013 vintage into a stemmed tulip. Awesome glittery black waxed 750ml with a pretty crazy label. Thanks to Yamar68 for this huge want of mine!
A - Pours a dark, dark purple that borders on black. Two fingers of purple stained khaki foam. Great edging and super long retention and lacing.
S - Massive red wine barrel presence. Oak, vanilla, grape juice, cherries and some rich charred malts. Man does this smell like sour grape juice!
T - Tart cherries, vinous red wine, oak and vanilla, tobacco and some chocolate malts. Not overly funky, just incredibly tart and barrel heavy. Finishes with an odd mashup of smooth oak and sour fruit. Has that lactic twang that most Flanders brouns and reds demonstrate. Mouth feel is a bit lacking and watery.
O - This is a super odd beer. Very similar to a Flanders bruin but with red grapes replacing the dominant cherry notes. I really enjoyed this one.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep ruby red/brown with nice white head. Aroma has big notes of some sour cherry, dark fruit, some tart apple and lemon, some barnyard funk, grape skin and mouth puckering wine character. Taste is similar, with big notes of red/dark fruit, some cherry notes, tart grape notes, dry tannic presence to go along with the tart cherry and fruit notes.

Draft at Butcher & the Boar. Sour cherries in the nose. Dark reddish brown with little head or lace. Quite sour with great malt balance. A treat for sour heads. Fruity with a dry finish. Outstanding.

Tap. Pours dark with no head. Aroma is slight tart funk with some maltiness. Flavor is initially tart but is well-balanced and finishes great. Had two pints and loved it all. The sour is not at all over-powering. Like this beer a lot..
