Bottle. Pours orange with a tiny head. Aroma of sour berries, some spices, malt and fruitiness. Flavor is sweet and sour with some cherries, cinnamon, sour berries, grains and some floral notes. Medium body, average carbonation. Imaena (2315) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - APR 16, 2013
Draught. This is a pretty gnarly wild ale with lots of sourness to go around. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Thanks to Chris and Starr for sharing this one. Nice tart cherry with very mild earth in the background. Flavor has mild wheat, good acidity, and a heavy cherry burst. Very drinkable. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 28, 2012
The beer is the color of pink grapefruit, with only a few bubbles of carbonation that dissipate immediately. No head and no lacing, the beer looks more like juice, or perhaps an unblended lambic.
The aroma offers some nice funk and cherries, with some sweeter berries like raspberries in there as well.
The flavor is delicious, light, and simple. Cherry juice with a nice tartness in the finish. Mild acetic character. Light bodied with low carbonation. Not especially complex, but quite drinkable and enjoyable. I would have this again.

Bottle. Pours very still and no head generation, on a bright orange pink hue that’s hazy. Very cherry, slight vinegarette, slight oak and vanilla aromas. Flavor is nicely tart upnfront, sour cherry that mellows in the middle, slightly woody, smooth finish and not as Puckering. Lighter body with still carbonation.

Where the Wild Beers Are 2012. Very low carbonation, nearly still. It does have good cherry aroma and flavor, and it is lightly sour. jackl (8022) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle from Harvest Wines. Pours a deep apricot color with no head. The nose is light balsamic vinegar, cherry, some brash acetic notes, general spices. The taste is cinnamon-coated cherry, sweet sugar, tangy tart fruits and balsamic vinegar. Light body, easy to drink. Soft carbonation. Overall, fairly decent! radagast83 (8007) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2012
2012 or 2011 version - whatever the most recent version was that I bought at the beginning of this year, I think it was 2012, so I’ll stick with that. Well, this one opened... flat. I mean, absolutely no pop on the cork, no fizz sound, nothing.BelgBeerGeek (1308) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2012
Poured... flat. Uh, oh. Well, aroma was nice, a touch tart dark cherries, with a slightly sweet and sour flavor throughout, like a sweet cherry with a touch of vinegar. While it didn’t seem to be a hit with the rest of the people around me, I enjoyed it, to a point. The carbonation was an unfortunate downside to this particular brew, especially how expensive the brew was to purchase.
I’d get another one if it weren’t so darn expensive to buy.

App: orange/copper , clear, lots of tiny bubbles,
Aroma: smell is awesome ! is it due to the age ? anyway superb ! lots of fruity accents , but mainly sweetsour cherrys, also a bit of pears , smell is sour but not acidic or vinegary , just sour, very nice
Taste: start is sweet cherrys , then sour cherrys, then the palate becomes sour but not overwhelming, you get allof of the oak flavours as well, bit of vanilla, bit of pears and sour/green apples, bit of strawberry as well , the palate cleans and makes room for a fruity well balanced woody flavour, end is semi dry , aftertaste is tiny bit grassy , very very nice !!!
750 thanks to Ernesto987. Pours with almost no carbonation. Bit of vinegar and cherry. Dry overall which makes it a bit different than other sour reds. Low alcohol makes it refreshing.
