Raspberries, winish, light tart aroma with a hint of bourbon. Brown, hazy, beige head, good lace. Sourish, berries, sweet, woody, light tart. Medium body, soft. Complex, flavourful.
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2012 Murky light brown body, creamy off white head. Rich sourness, but with complexity. Red berries and earthy. Sweet, thick, complex, nice. Well made oily palate. Thanks Menno/John! Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2012
Clear light amber pour. Aroma is raspberries, wine, a hint of bourbon, very clean and fruity. Flavor is nice sour, very fruity, a bit thin but well drinkable. JaBier (7972) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle sampled at Muckfest III. Hazy amber/copper pour with a thin off-white head. Malty aroma with tangy and tart citrus. Malty flavor with a touch of caramel and booze before a tangy citrus finish. madvike (3260) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle shared by ogglethorp at Muckfest III...thanks Brian! - Pours clear amber with no head. Nose is caramel sweetness with a little rotting truit, but not much sourness. Taste is real flat and papery with limp bready malt and a touch of tartness on the finish. Real thin and watery in the mouth. Wow...not a good beer, and not at all what I expected.

Bottle shared at MuckFest 3 - Saturday Edition. Pours a richer amber orange hue, healthy glow and some frothy offwhite head that dies to a ring, laces small. Touches of haze, dulled glow. Aromas are funky and a touch metallic, some cherries and tons of cheese, soft funky cheese, oak, and bready malts. Touches of raspberries, more cheesy funk and brett, dust and cobwebs. Dryness. Odd. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied with firm tartness, sour twang, a bit metallic, cheesy with some oak, firm bready malts, toast. Touches of red fruit, more cheese and brett with a sharpness to it. Pizza spice like oregano at times, touches of cherry and raspberry, gentle lemon lactic presence. Fairly brett forward and a bit sharp. An odd one. Taste wins me over a bit. Quite odd though. hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUN 22, 2012

Served in an Allagash cervoise.
Pours an orange-copper color with a nice, two-finger white head with really nice retention and some spotty lacing on the way down. There’s a thin collar throughout.
The nose carries a nice bit of buttery oak with some vanilla in there as well. Behind that comes a bit of caramel and raspberry, plus a good dosage of earth. Smooth oak really dominates, and then is followed up with some nice funk and earthiness. Vanilla is fairly-prominent. The fruit is in the background at this point.
The flavor is incredibly smooth as well. Again, there’s a really fantastic oak presence with light toffee and caramel. Light acidity comes through on the background along with some raspberry must and a nice earthiness. Vanilla in the background.
Very smooth and creamy, which heads to the feel. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Light sherry-like oxidation comes through toward the finish. Faint acidity through the finish. The feel might be the best part of what is really an all-around fantastic beer, and is one of the best American Wilds that I’ve had to date. j12601 (11831) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle from a trade over a year ago with Kan. Thanks again. Been saving this for a while for a milestone rating, and since 3000 occurred at a tasting, figured I was due for a bottle of something all by myself. Pours a lightly hazed red tinged brown with a thin white head. Big sour acid right away, acetic and a touch of nuttiness to it. There’s also the softest caramel and cocoa hints as well, and chocolate covered cherries. Medium bodied, spicy carbonation still. Warming alcohol shows up right away, still a vibrant and lively beer. Spicy and warm, more chocolate covered cherries, this time with a hint of almonds and nuts. Light lemony acidity. More acid, very fine carbonation, nutty. Finishes with a long lingering bright acidity, tart old wood, dusty cheesy funk. Not a mind blowing experience, but still quite nice. Long lasting funkiness on the exhale. kappldav123 (6100) - GERMANY - OCT 26, 2011
Bottle looks great. Beer in the glass deep golden, almost brownish. Starts intense sourish, not too much and not too dry. Fine spicy notes and also some fruity hints make the beer very interesting. Finish not as sour as the beginning. Well balanced and very drinkable. An awesome beer!
