Batch 1. Pours an amber red orange with almost no head. A nice fruity nose: tropical fruit, orange citrus, lemon, and all around fruity. Tart acidic fruit flavors lots of acidic fruit especially cherries with some wood bringing in another layer. Good stuff. 8/3/8/4/15 Nisse666 (7289) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2010

Pours a rusty, cloudy red with a thin, but stubborn ring of white bubbles. Smells of vinegarm=, some sugar, oaky, spicy. Tastes tart and slightly lactic with some acidic dryness, berry notes, dry, and lemony on the finish. pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Bottle courtesy of decoman from TBS. Bottled 8/14/09. Pours a cloudy, essentially opaque reddish-brown. Very red, almost pink. Very bubbly, tons of tiny bubbles in the head. Taste is very fruity...raspberry, cherry. Not as sour as I was expecting - a very drinkable sour. Girlfriend liked it too. dmac (6197) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Bottle shared at the 4th release of CDC. Poured an orange/lavender body with a foamy super light pink head. Aroma is sour and funky with notes of raspberries and dandelions along with a touch of brett. The body had some seriously strong carbonation and a thinner watery feel. The flavor is the same as the aroma, fruity and funky. Really well done.

Pours out a cloudy orangy color with an off white head. Aroma is of some funky, fruit and light tartness. Taste is a very nice blend of sour, funky, and fruity, dry finish. Definitely a wonderfully balanced brew. anders37 (26137) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2010

I made sure this one was ice cold to avoid gushing and opened it over the sink just in case. No beer lost, but it did foam up quite aggressively.
A: The pour is a cloudy pink-orange color with a very fluffy head that is mostly white but perhaps has a pinkish hue to it.
S: Quite a bit of fruitiness to the nose. Raspberries and strawberries seem to be the most noticeable, along with a hint of lemon and grapes. A fair amount of oak to this one as well.
T: Surprisingly vinous in terms of the flavor. Lots of oak, red grapes, raspberries, and blackberries. The sourness is not as intense as other wilds, but the tartness is nice.
M: The body is medium and the carbonation is very plentiful, perhaps too much so at first. But as the beer calms down from its initial gushing, it is more pleasant.
D: A pretty easy to drink wild ale. Not overly sour, but good fruit character and a nice bit of oak to it. Glad to have another bottle. brianjames1 (539) - Northridge, California, USA - JUL 17, 2010
22oz bomber poured into a snifter glass. Pours reddish in color with a pinkish white head, lovely display of carbonation.Aroma of brett, barn, and fruits. Mouth feel is crisp, velvety, with lots of carbonation. Taste is delicious, 6.7% very well hidden. Tart and sour yet no overwhelmingly sour, great balance, some fruitiness. One of goose islands finest. Ungstrup (37208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2010
Bottled. A gusher. A deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, malt, fruits, and berries. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, berries, brettanomyces, and straw. Thanks KimJohansen for sharing.
