American Wild Ale aged in red wine barrels and dry hopped with Mosaic, Amarillo, Citra, and Centennial hops. Bottled on 2/13/15 and enjoyed on 3/28/15. Poured from a bottle into a Wicked Weed tulip. The pour is very clear and golden in color. It sports two fingers of fluffy white head with low retention. The nose is fruity and tart with notes of fresh apples, white wine, green grapes, mild vinegar, and fresh lemons.

Medium-light body with a flat, yet firm, feel. Fairly sharp, sour flavor. Fruity and vinegary, not musty or funky. Mouth-watering, juicy, tart flavors of fresh lemons, sour apples, champagne, pineapples, mandarin oranges, and not-quite-ripe melons. Not hoppy, but some tropical fruit notes from the hops are still apparent. Predominantly citric-like acidity. Finishes with a slight lactic tartness on the back of the palate that lingers, but doesn't clash with the other flavors. Nothing objectionable here at all.

Really liking the level of tartness in Wicked Weed sours. Not "sour bombs", but certainly intense enough to appeal to fans of the style. This one is no exception. Solid American sour.

Soft floral aroma, with acetic sourness. Flavor is very lactic and acetic, fairly fruity and tart.

An excellent offering from Wicked Weed. Most recently consumed on-draft at the Funkatorium in Asheville. Pours amber with 1/2 inch head. Smell is hops, some citrus, oak. Also get sour 'funk' with some alcohol. Very inviting. Taste is sour and citrus on the front, hop-heavy with a bite on the back. After several sips the contrast mellows but maintains, making a remarkably enjoyable experience as the feel is crisp and steady.

This is a fantastic beer. On tap--very very highly recommended.
