Poured from a caged & corked bottle into a Chimay goblet. My first SUPER AWESOME RR beer and first ever Wild...I AM EXCITED. Batch 004X4.
A- pours a dark reddish shade of brown with a half finger head that fades nearly instantly...I assume that is par for the course since I gave this an aggressive pour. Some of the head sticks around on the top of the glass and around the edges...it just LOOKS evil, like some sort of witches brew...god its awesome, constantly bubbling.
S- strong cherries with a bit of a tartness to them. Getting some of an aroma of a wine type flavor as well. Great.
T- holy wow...awesome sour, tart, killer cherries. Its only mildly puckering...but I don't care. It kicks ass. The oak flavor seeps through a little bit too. Perfection.
M- well carbonated, great body. Balance is fantastic with the tartness.
D- the sourness could be a little offputting to some...but not me. I love this. It packs a punch though, but you can't really taste the booze at all...dunno if I could handle more than one without my tastebuds being shot. Unreal beer
