Mysterium Verum. Scots Gone Wild marks the initial offering from Real Ale Brewing Company in the world of sour beers. Real Heavy, our strong scotch ale, was aged for 6 months in American oak barrels, during which time it underwent a dramatic refermentation due to the presence of a very special cocktail of wild yeast and bacteria. The end result is a dry, cherry-pie sour, with a subtle oak character and a bold tartness. OG: 20˚P

Shared 500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a light beige head. Aroma of tart cherries and dark berries. Taste is tart cherries, dark berries, oak, booze. Interesting. Its certainly correctly classified as a sour, but you can definitely still taste the underlying scotch ale base - and it works rather well together. Excellent.

darbeer75 (795) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2017
Aroma: lots of cherry and some tartness; Appearance: clear dark amber pour with thin white head that lingers; Taste: intensely sour with some caramel scotch ale in the background; interesting and different; Palate: heavy body with long, sour finish; Overall: good but better in small quantities. Will probably not get again but still enjoyed it.

Growler pour. Light beige head. Dark brown body with reddish tint. Strong bourbon and hints of cherry aroma. Initial taste carbonation and sour cherries. Finishes with a vanilla bourbon whisky and toffee flavor. Great winter time beer with a unique flavor.

Andrew196 (1740) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Dark amber, frothy beige head. Aroma of cherry, toffee. I love how the sour leads to the caramel burst towards the end, some whiskey and wood, very big, very good.

Marheb (5558) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 12, 2016
(En ft Hopfields): Le nez est impeccable avec son tabac pipe, son beurre brett et ses cerises confitures. En bouche cest un fudge aux noisettes dcadent enrob dactique attendrissant. Laspect richesse versus asschement de la barrique est phnomnale.

kevinator (2150) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Aromas and Flavors of sour fruit, funk, oak and burnt caramel. A big distinction from the base beer. Complex with a nice dark burgundy color and a weighty palate with a slightly dry and puckering finish.
