2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
750 ml Bottle. Well it has a nice color, red with a pink hue. No head at all. Aroma is sour raspberries, funky oak and vinegar.
We did a side by side with a 2011 and a 2012. Both very hard to drink. I dislike drinking vinegar in a sour, this has vinegar, sea slat, artificial raspberry, paint thinner, extremely sharp funky oak. Harsh, just plain hash. Not sure how anybody could really enjoy this. 4 oz. was more then enough out 750 ml bottle.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"this murky ruby brown brew doesn’t seem hot in any way, but it’s a little heavy and sticky for a wild ale, making me wonder is 11.4% really necessary. Heavy on the oak, with sour fruits and ample raspberry, though not overtly so. A good but not great sour (has just a touch a that baby diaper thing going on too). Lingering on the palate. Thanks Greg for the trade."

Bottle 2014. Pour is pinkish copper. Awesome sour aroma with raspberries and wood. Taste is slightly sweet. Perhaps aging would soften the overwhelming raspberry. Good wild ale.
