3.75/5 rDev +9.3%
Another bottle shared by Rhettroactive. Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tasting glass. It poured a murky dark brown color with a thick foamy head to it.
The aroma is slightly funky with a lot of fruitiness coming through. A little bit of a malty, slightly caramel like flavor is there. I liked the light funk to it. Not bad overall, but not great either.
The taste shows a little more funk and sourness to it but the tart fruits show through as well. Pretty big malty base to it as well. Pretty decent flavors to it.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied with high carbonation. Overall I thought it was pretty good. It had a nice mix of funky, tart fruits and some decent supporting malt flavors. It was pretty drinkable as well.

From 750mL bottle to Portsmouth glass on 3/24/12
A: Shit brown. This beer ain't taking anyone to prom. A hearty pour yields a one finger white head and a decent collar.
S: Traditional funk. Not much more to it.
T: A lot more malt then I was expecting. It's rich and robust, like there's a bigger beer underneath the wild yeast that covers this from top to bottom. Fairly well balanced and reasonably complex. Not nearly the "paint thinner" I'd been warned of.
M: Extremely thick for a Wild Ale. Plenty of bite. Creamy and robust.
O: A surprisingly above average beer. I'd heard horror stories of this one. It's lingered in the back of my cellar for well over a year, and I'd no idea of when I was gonna open it. Yet after all of my worries, I'm glad I finally shared this with friends. Everyone generally enjoyed CCB & St. Somewhere's Vuja De. Not the best of the Wild Ale style, yet it certainly passed my taste test.

Bottle: Poured a deep amber brown color ale with a nice thick foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma consists of hibiscus and tart notes with light funky ester. Taste is a complex mix of tart notes with fruity flavour courtesy of the berries and hibiscus. Sour level is bit more pronounced then I would have expected but not overly so. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Alcohol is not apparent though not sure it is required to have such ABV for this beer. Good, would love to try this one again.
