Big thanks to Perth belbianbeer for this one.

A - Pours a redish brown colour with a thin white head that dies quick.

S - Plenty of funk and some dark fruits.

T - Very tart up front, with plenty of barnyard funk. A little dark fruit on the finish, with some green grape.

M - The body is medium and the carbonation is low. Mid palate is very dry.

O - Very enjoyable American wild ale.

Poured into a tulip glass.  The color is red-brown and clear with little head development.  The carbonation from the refermentation is evident.

The aroma is reminiscent of a cab, but fruitier and with some slight maltiness.  

The taste oaky, sour fruit, and wine flavors. Dry.

This ale is quite carbonated, like champagne.  Medium body, but heavy with 10% alcohol.
