12oz bottle (bottled 9/21/12) poured into an Idle Hands tulip.
A - Pours a purple/maroon tinted dark brownish body. Almost no head, just a quickly fading and fizzy skim coat of white bubbles that leaves behind a small collar.
S - Lots of fruity red wine character up front, raspberries, some sour cherry. Fairly musty, a touch funky, lightly tart. Nice.
T - Firm tartness and lactic sourness up front. Intensity is surprisingly high based on the aroma - I expected a more subtle tart aspect here. Tannic red wine character overpowers the fruit some, pushing the raspberries a bit in the background although they are still a strong player in the flavor. Some acetic sourness becomes more noticeable with its vinegary flavor kicking in towards the finish. Very little funk presence.
M - Thinnish medium body, fuller than many wilds. Quite tart and sour from start to finish. Medium level tingly carbonation.
O - Overall, I enjoyed this. Assertive tartness and nice red wine and raspberry fruity character. Would like to have had a stronger funk presence - a little bit lacking in dimension without it. Tasty wild ale...wouldn't put it at the top of the category, but solid and worth trying albeit a bit pricey.
