COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale is our first venture into barrel aged American wild ales. A blond Saison base similar to that of Saison I, fermented on our proprietary Wicked Wild strain. After fermentation we moved the beer into Petite Verdot Barrels from Rock House Vineyards and added mango, papaya and guava where it sat for 6 months. This ale is tart and tropical with notes of musty hay and citrus. The tartness of this sour is moderate and the dry fruityness makes this beer a great palate cleanser and pairs well with delicate dishes.

Updated: Aged in white wine barrels with 250 lbs per batch of papaya, mango, pineapple and guava. The beer is blended from barrels ranging 5-12 months.

500ml bottle. Tart aroma of tropical fruits including pineapple, mango and papaya as well as vinous white wine notes. Pours clear golden colored with a nearly non-existent white head that has no retention or lacing. Starts with a mixture of tart and sweetness from the various tropical fruit flavors as well as having a very lively mouthfeel. Finishes a bit tart with nice dry white wine flavor and a bit of oak as well. Nice first sour to try from these guys!

Golden color with a pineapple and citrus aroma. It is sour but not over the top. Some pineapple and white grapes. This is very similar to a dry white wine. Overall good flavors and tame.

The correct amount of sour and nose of sour. Tart but refreshing well done and tangy. Thin head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lightly hazy gold. Nose is quite floral with some tropical fruit (papaya mostly). Taste is lightly tart, with flavors of elderflower, and delicate tropical fruit. Delicate little beer.

375 mL bottle shared by Gus in line at 4 Elf. The pour is a bright gold color with a light ring of white head and a lovely soapy lace. The aroma is great. Sour fruit skins and a decent barrel character. There is some wood and earthiness. The flavor is good. Light fruits, heavy barrel. The fruits are good. The mouth feel is good. There is a good viscosity and a light carbonation with a lingeringly winey sour finish. Good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wow..super excited to try my first offering from Wicked Weed and this doesn’t let down..just reading the label makes one happy a sour aged with tropical fruits on wine barrels..seems really hard to master but this is stellar..pours a golden color with slight head..small carbonation action..nose is massive tropical aromas with pineapple..mango all working nicely..interesting tang like citric quality intertwined with the vinous character from the barrel..combined with the complexity of the offering at the low 6.0 abv..and no wonder these guys have been garnering high praise for what they are doing..this is excellent from soup to nuts and makes me want to go visit the source for more..cheers

[Backlog] Bottle shared at Franks. Pours a bright golden body with soft white lacing. Mouthfeel is thin bodied with spicy carbonation prickling the palate; notes of dry yeast, bitter tropical fruits, not really juicy or tart - more peppery and spicy.

Bottle, thanks cavemanlawyer! Almost clear pale golden liquid with small, fast dissipating white head. Aroma of lemon, lactic acid, white wine, light wood, apples and light funk. Taste is dry and medium sour with notes of lemon, mineral, apple skin, white wine and light grain. Almost reminds me of mineraly champagne. Light to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. A tiny bit boozy. Pretty nice.

Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of apricot, red fruits, US sour yeast, carambola, guava. Sour flavour. Quite watery, very thin. Light fruity finish.
