Poured from a bottle, looks a hazy purple color.
It's quite sour with berry tartness and seems like lactic acid bacteria in the fermentation. A lot of character in flavors, from the fruits to the wild yeast and the barrel, with a slightly dry bitter wood finish.

Pretty interesting beer, I'm glad I picked it up!

Corked bottle. Very dense rose color (barely translucent) with a blueberry tinge if held up to a light. Has a finger head of tiny bubbles that lasts fairly long (seems like many similar fruited beers have a head that quickly disappears to a film). Smell is not big, woody with a bit of fruit. Taste has a lot of barrel in it, the rest is an unusual somewhat bitter mix - not as fruity as I expected which may mean the blueberry and preserved citrus do not blend well for my tastebuds. Feel is a little puckering but fluid with modest carbonation. Overall, this did not match my expectations for a wild ale so it was disappointing given the high price.
