Very dark red/light brown beer. Clear. Head faded to nothing very quickly. Some lacing.
I can't get enough of this aroma. Extremely sour and tart. Dark fruit some sweetness and a little bit of spice. A really complex aroma. I can't wait to start sipping.
Wow. Amazing flavor. Extremely complex. Sweet and puckeringly tart at the same time. Very acidic. A little bit like Smarties or SweetTarts, but much more sour.
Thin to medium bodied beer with a highly carbonated and slick mouthfeel. A very very dry everlasting finish.
An excellent sour beer. One of the best I've had. Though, I like Supplication better. This one is darker and much more harsh on the tongue.

American wild ale
APPEARANCE: Gorgeous colors in this beer. Deep ruby mahogany, with a burnt orange rim variation. Little to no head with very light lacing.
AROMA: Nice and sour fruit right away. The Cabernet barrel explodes with notes of oak, currants, black cherry jam some barnyard funk rounds it out.
TASTE: Very tart lots of green apples which I didn't get on the nose. Fades rather quickly into the currant and cherries. Definitely getting that Cabernet flavors and nice oakiness.
MOUTHFEEL: Oddly enough without having a head on the beer there is a lot of prickly carbonation. Medium bodied slight oily feel maybe due to the Cabernet barrels.
OVERALL: Great, easily approachable sour. Wine drinkers will really appreciate the complex flavor profiles. Thoroughly enjoyed this, I think sharing the bottle was the way to go. The high ABV is hidden well and makes it almost to easy to drink.
RATING: 4/5 Zombie Heads!
