Pours a dark, deep burnt amber with a slight hkhaki head. Not only a nice aroma but an incredibly interesting one that had me pondering for a moment just what it was that I was taking in. Wood, the aromatics from the wine barrels, vinegar, raspberries, and a little leather. Flavor is SOUR. Huge acidic hit of sour that leads into a nice sweet, tart raspberry finish with a little wood hanging out underneath. A thinner to medium mouthfeel with minimal activity. Overall, a very nice beer that really opens up as it begins to warm up.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 12oz bottle. A delicious gift from my fiance who was in Denver last week.

Pours a nice looking dark copper that turns into a nice dark amber. There is a nice thin head that is about 0.25 inch tall. The head is off-white.

Aroma is intense! As soon as I popped the bottle I got huge vinegar hints. Nice tart sour fruits as well. Upon further inspection. More vinegar, delicious balsamic tart notes. Then some fruitier raspberry tart notes backed up by some refreshing fruit sweetness. Leathery notes and some slight tobacco notes in the nose as well mixed in with some great oak notes. Nice and funky with some vinous aromas as well. This nose is amazing. So rich and complex.

Flavor is impressive! Starts off with tons of vinegar tartness that quickly subsides with some milder fruity raspberry tart notes. There is some slight fruity sweetness that also helps curb the acidity. Vinous notes are present with some nice funk and earthy woody notes. This brew is amazing. Reminds me a bit of the Duchesse de Burgogne. The woody and tart notes finish the beer off dry and delicious. this brew is impressive. Amazing tart notes, amazing fruit notes and great crisp and clean mouthfeel.

This brew is great. An excellent representation of the style. Nice raspberry notes, strong tartness that doesn't kill the palette and some awesome woody and vinous notes.

this came out yesterday or today, and is the 13th of the barrel series beers. it might just be as good as the oud floris or the uncle jacobs, its friggen outstanding! not sure whether to call this an american wild ale, which it surely is, or a flanders red ale, the closest approximation of what its trying to be. any help on this would be much appreciated. pours a ruby red color, shady from some sediment, with a laid back quarter inch of tan head. the smell is real sour, not just brett either. definitely some lacto in here, its acidic and tannic and tart and fruity and wowwww. some vinegar to the nose too, almost intimidated to take the first sip. its jaw hurting sour at first, but then some of the intricacies come in. first raspberries, then oak and cab sauv, almost like a wine blend or something. lots of fruit coming through. whatever was floral in the nose didnt come through to the taste, but thats okay. the sour dry finish is punishing. alcohol is well hidden, carbonation is slight, and body is roundly medium. makes for a nice drinking sour. interesting that i got to have this and crooked staves batch number 1 on the same afternoon. this is much more sour, but its also much more fresh. the batch 1 is highly refined and mature, with this is young and angry, but its a wonderful beer. i think the wine is more apparent in this, and the raspberries in the batch 1. worth every penny, as all the barrel series beers have been. a must have.
