This isn't really an "American Wild", it's an Italian wild in my opinion. My understanding is that it's the same base beer as L'Ultima Luna, so it's an Italian Barleywine, then aged in Nebbiolo barrels and aged with sour cherries. This bottle says "Cuvee 2009, Bottle No. 222".

This one pours a syrupy, dirty amber in color, medium bodied with little to no lacing. Having had their other beers, it looks on par. The aromas are full of lacto, sour cherries, cinnamon, fermenting cherries, some brett, light vinegar, funk, more funk, and has a weird cider aspect. Very complex nose if you give it time. The flavors consist of acidic cherries, reminiscent of perhaps an old world red wine, lacto, barnyard, and sweet red fruits. Interesting and complex. You also get some light oak barrel as well. For a beer from Del Ducato, it has an above average mouthfeel. Their beers tend to be pretty flat but this one is on key. It drinks very well and leaves your mouth slightly dry. This is one unique beer. It took them a couple years to make. Again, hats off to the Italians for this one. It was very good. This is worth your while if you're willing to lay down the $18.99 a bottle.
