Its a 6.7% American Wild Red Ale that has undergone 100% of its fermentation and 18 months of aging in pinot noir wine barrels on a collection of micro flora that has created wonderful flavors of berry fruits, oak and a pronounced, yet quite pleasant tartness.

750 ml bottle that poured a reddish amber color that made it very interesting. Aromas of strawberries, cherries, oak, and some acid funkiness. Flavors are tart fruits, some vinegar, funk and some oak. Really nice beer in my book would like to get some more.

Bottle batch 2 to snifter (thanks watson1977). Pours cloudy dark blood orange with little wispy head that disappears. Aroma is funk light cheese and cherries and apple peel. Taste is awesome sour and tart acidic with wet corks and leather with hints of fruit. Palate is medium and slick with an acidic dry finish. Really enjoyable.

750 ml bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a hazy mahogany-amber with a small eggshell white head. Aroma of berries, red grapes, oak, and some lemon- very dry. Flavor of berries, balsamic, chocolate, leather, lemon juice, sweet malts, toffee, and peaches. Medium-bodied, with a tart, dry mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Lot of tannin character. Solid sour.

Aroma- big light fruits, mostly strawberries and raspberries, funky Appearance- dark red, borderline brown, large, dissipating white head, high carbonation Taste- crisp, effervescent, champagne-like characteristics, strawberries, raspberries, funk Palate- decent body, very high carbonation, very drinkable Overall- A nice sour, especially for someone who isnt, for lack of a better term, wild about them. The berry qualities are quite pleasant and the drinkability is quite high. On par with Supplication, imo.

Bottle courtesy of yourefragile. Served in a Mikasa tulip. Pours a red-amber color with a good off-white head and a bit of lacing. The nose carries some cherries and oak plus a bit of an acetic character behind the lactic acid. Flavor ramps up the acetic character a bit more; not surprising given what Riserva is normally like. Light-medium body with oak and acetic acid. Not the best sour, though not awful.

Dirty brown with no head. Smell is grapey barnyard funk, and thats it. Sour, slightly bready taste. Really sticky, kind of boozy.

reggiedunlop (3703) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Pours a clear ruby color with a thick tan head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has tart soury notes...vinous with mild leathery funk...hints at sour cherry and oak. Flavor has nice vinous soury notes, mild oakiness, and a faint hint of tart fruits and balsamic vinegar. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry, soury fruit finish that has a faint acidic burn. Wow.
