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.

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.

15/VIII/15 - 500ml bottle @ We’re drinking all of Rich’s American beers tasting - BB: n/a, bottled: 2014 (2015-1087) Thanks to omgrich for sharing the bottle!

Clear pale blond beer, no head. Aroma: pretty fruity, sweet, funky, hint of cinnamon, stone fruits, some peaches. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish, brett, lemon juice, artificial, fruity touch. Aftertaste: little bitter, tannins, slightly fruity, vinegar acidity, lemon rind, watery finish. I’m not impressed...

Bottle. Pours clear golden, small fizzy white head, quick dissipation, some lacing. Aroma is a big up front burst of butterscotch, followed by some tropical fruit, caramel, oak. Flavor is there too - hella butterscotch, some fruitiness, pineapple note in particular, oaky tannins. Light residual sweetness, lightly tart. I am giving the benefit of the doubt here, but this is the butterscotchiest beer I have ever tried.

Un liquide au visuel doré éclatant légèrement voilé surmonté d’une mousse fugace se verse dans le verre. Au premier plongeon du pif, le côté funky de la bière prend d’assaut les narines. En répétant maintes fois l’action, les couches olfactives se précisent et dévoilent des arômes de fruits tropicaux, de lait de coco et de vin blanc. Une belle acidité d’une véhémence moyenne attaque le palais et s’affale rapidement dans une vague fruitée voire sucrée. Le passage en barriques de vin blanc dégage des charmes vanillés fort agréables. Le funk est plutôt timide, ce qui laisse toute la chance aux fruits tropicaux de s’exprimer.
