This is a different beer than Wild One. It is Wild One, aged in barrels on Raspberries.
A - Instead of Wild One Brown with minimal head, it was a much more red/burgundy color. Lively head on it.
S - It is muted sweet fruit, with a strong vinegar back end. It does have more of a nose that WO, but the fruit aren't as present as expected.
T - Oh my. Think Raspberry Lambic. It is more tart that WO, but is balanced by a sweet Raspberry finish. Taste wise, it is a better beer, considering it is more complex, with the base of bell's best brown, the souring process, and then raspberry aging.
M - More lively than WO. Seems like the brewing process, or perhaps the aging process has ended with a beer that is more carbbed than WO. Much more pleasant mouth feel.
O - This is a knockout beer. The difference between it and WO are profound. The tartness, balanced with the sweet raspberry is excellent. Overall, I look forward to more WO hybrids from Bell's. I think they got it down.

on-tap, maduro, 2 pours
appearance: served in a pint and also an awesome bells tulip - garnet body, light beige head, good clarity
smell: tart, oak, fresh raspberry, funk
taste: This was good stuff and it's no wonder the keg kicked quite quickly - funky tartness throughout, great pulpy raspberry presence, oak, bread
mouthfeel : good carbonation, nice puckering tartness
overall: very strong variation on the Wild One

Had this on tap at Savor NYC this past weekend. Pours a maroon color, little to no head on this. Has a strong smell of raspberry. Taste was surprising tart. I had this following Founders Rubaeus to compare the two and I was surprised by how much more tart this one was.
It was still a very enjoyable beer to drink, would definitely have it again, but probably will not get my chance living in nyc.
