375mL bottle into tulip. bottled on 08.27.12.
A: amber hued. slightly hazed. carbonization bubbles everywhere, carefully making their way to the surface. head is a reddish white hue and tightly bubbled. retention is solid. some lacing.
S: acidic. tart. sour cherries. floral. there is a mild chocolate aroma in there too. dry hot chocolate powder. however, mostly barny and beautiful. the cherries add a nice layer of depth.
T: wow, that is sour and then some. after the initial slam, my palate adjusts to the flavor. vinous. sour cherries impart a sweetness as well. reminds me of a cherry pie pastry. hard to discern between the super sweet flavor and the acidic tartness. the finish has a meaty graininess to it. lingering pie crust.
M: carbonation is spot on. bubbly, but not too much to distract from the body. medium bodied.
D: super solid brew. understandable why it is becoming the benchmark for American wilds. great complexity and balance. glad to see the grain peek its head out from a blanket of acidity. if you have the ability to get this, get it.

Ruby red over brownish hues with a tan head that goes quickly. Minimal lacing with big sediment at the bottom. Tart cherries, Pinot noir wine and oak notes in the nose. Big tart cherry flavor supported by wine like qualities cloaked in oaky notes in the background. Tartness is cut toward the end by the malt backbone, making it sour and funky but reeling it in before it gets too far out of line. Puckering and tart with vibrant carbonation and a bone dry finish. A sipper for sure and a fantastically different beer.
