Look - pours a light rose' wine color with a small, soapy, off-white head. Retention is fair with a faint ring of bubbles sitting just above the rim of liquid. Minimal lacing.
Smell - Some lactic funk, red wine, berries, wood
Taste - tartness from the berries and lactic as well as some brett flavors. Definitely get that red wine barrel effect too. Nice
Feel - light body with a fair amount of carbonation. Sharp, crispness with this one with a pretty dry finish with a fruity aftertaste coming from the berries.
Overall - Another nice funkster from Wicked Weed. Enjoyed this one.

A- Reddish purple, good size head depending on agressiveness of pour
S- Summer berries, slight tartness
T- First thought was "berry malt beverage". The wine barrel and all the fruit added a lot of sugar that took away the tartness. Wish it were more tart.
F- Nice and light
O- Not my favorite sour

Bottled 4/2/15

L: A nice ruby red with a thin head
S: Blackberries, grass, yeast, a bit more subdued than I expected
T: More dry than sweet, berries dominant, some citrus notes, moderately sour, light oak, slightly more mellow/ watery than ideal which became more apparent with each sip
F: Light, crisp, tart, moderate carb
O: A very solid american wild. Wish there were a bit more funk and it were a bit less watery. A little bit reminiscent of Fruit Punch 2 (though not as good).
