Batch 004x1 from the bottle on Easter.
A: Pours a beautiful dark golden brown, with a ruby hue. The head sticks around a very long time, and leaves sticky lacing on the walls of the glass.
S: Funk leads the charge, followed by a potent tart cherry. There is sone band-aid in the middle. Sweet cherries wrap up the nose.
T: There isn't as my funk as the nose suggests, it's more acidic. Dark fruits dominate tour mid-palate, mostly cherries and plums, before giving way to some funk at the end.
M: Prickly carbonation assists the various flavors. Medium bodied.
D: After having Batch 005 on tap yesterday, I'd say the fresher this beer, the better. When the beer is fresh, the fruit flavors or more vibrant, but the sourness and funkiness levels are a little less abrasive. This beer is delicious at any age, but out of the three batches I've had, I'd rank them in the following order (best to worst): 003, 005, 004

This brew is as close to perfect to a style as I've ever had - everything is noticeable - even hops! But the Pinot barrels shine here like no other -
First off this brew looks beautiful. As you pour it's a bruin brown but shines and turns into a dark red with a crystal white head - such an illusion. This is like a wine with head .
Aromas are of barrel flavors and funky bacterias. Pure wild ale bliss!
Tastes like dark colored grapes with other fruits.
So tasty. Layers of barrel red wine flavors. Ripened cherries that have almost reached fermentation. That funky flavor of cherries locked up in a ziploc found a day after a long hike - such a unique flavor here
Mouthfeel is crisp but not too fizzy - sooo good when cold. A taste of decadence but never making one make a Face of discomfort - perfection
Overall this is probably the best beer I've ever had regardless of style - it's so inviting and just full of all the favorite flavors I like in wine. A freaken winner and I would buy this EVERYTIME I see it
