4.03/5 rDev -7.8%
On tap at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.
Pours a clear dark red with a foamy reddish-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with raspberry and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour raspberry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and refreshing.

Huge thanks to raveskdr for the assist on this one. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a nice brownish-red color with a short white head and a spot or two of lacing. The nose carries a nice earthy raspberry aroma along with a nice underlying malt and tartness. Flavor has a light maltiness behind the fruit. Good acidity. A very nice addition to the base beer.

On tap at the Eccentric Cafe, into an oversized snifter.
Burgundy in colour, poured with no head, an only a pencil thin collar. No retention or lace. Tart raspberry/cranberry on the nose, a dash of funk and some sweet oak notes. Ligth acetic acid, fairly reminiscent of a flanders red. More tart berry notes on the palate, mild acetic acid and a sweet-sour interplay for the most part but tartness wins in the finish. Only some mild oak in the flavour. Medium full feel, with a hard puckering finish. Medium high effervescence, quite the solid fruit beer.

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

On tap at Bell's.
A - A very dark, purplish colored beer. The addition of the raspberries gave this one a fun and rich color. Little bit of an off-white head with on there with a pink tinge.
S - Vinegar, vinous qualities, sour funk, and some raspberries. It smells like a good sour with a bit of meat on it.
T - Taste is pretty good. It has a nice, underlying tartness with a little acetic acid and some good raspberries. There is some funk in there as well. Initially it has some good pucker factor but it gets really easy to drink as you go. A minor complaint was the finish, which was just kind of boring.
M - Medium bodied, slightly dry finish, soft carbonation that feels bigger due to the tartness of this beer.
O - A good beer, I find this to be a nice sour and would love to get a bottle if it ever went to that. For an American Wild, you could definitely do worse.

Served in a tasting glass the Firestone Walker Beer Fest. From notes. Reviewed 1 June 2013.
I was hugely impressed with this beer. A reddish amber color with cherries, tart fruit, and noticeable wild yeast on the nose. The taste is cranberry tartness and raspberry sweetness. Fruity, delicious, and very, very good. Highly recommended.
