Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Acquired in a trade from chalupa_batman, thanks!
A- Pours a clear amber body with a fizzy white 2" head that rises and reduces quickly to leave zero lacing or head.
S- Smells similar to the other RR wilds, but it's a little more wine-forward. I get an acidic berry/cherry/fermented fruit aroma with leather, wood, must, and dry red wine. Some spices and vinegar are in the background. Smells awesome.
T- Quite tart with sour cherry, green apple, and woody oak notes upfront that develop into red wine (cabernet is definitely present). Red wine vinegar and musty notes are in the background. Leaves a sour taste on the palette. No booze detected.
M- Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation.
Another world class impression of the American Wild by RR. The cabernet barrel aging really adds a whole new dimension of complexity to this beer. Well done.
