Thanks to Adam for the swingtop.

The pour is a dark brown color with some reddish notes. An interesting aroma. Some vanilla and malt sweetness with a bit of caramel. Some vinegar notes and maybe a hint of dark fruit. Most of the tartness is there in the form of vinegar. A little bit of vanilla and malt sweetness to it. Some hints of oak and a mild grass note. Medium body with low carbonation.

Growler, thanks to Kan! Poured into tulip.

A - Pours a dark red/brown color, tan-colored head, thin collar.

S - Dark fruits, burnt sugars, sour cherries, some sugary malts in there as well. A nice balance and not as abrasive as some of their other wild offerings.

T - Similar to the nose, enjoyable. Dark fruits, chocolate, burnt sugars, sugary malts, on the lighter side of tart/sour, but still there for sure. The sweetness of the Scotch Ale and light tart notes work nicely together.

M - Medium, good carbonation, creamy tart finish.

O - I enjoyed this play on a sour Scotch Ale because it's not just a wild, it's balanced between both. Easy to drink, sweet, sour, and complex. Would have again, if I have the chance.
