This is a different beer than Wild One. It is Wild One, aged in barrels on Raspberries.

A - Instead of Wild One Brown with minimal head, it was a much more red/burgundy color. Lively head on it.

S - It is muted sweet fruit, with a strong vinegar back end. It does have more of a nose that WO, but the fruit aren't as present as expected.

T - Oh my. Think Raspberry Lambic. It is more tart that WO, but is balanced by a sweet Raspberry finish. Taste wise, it is a better beer, considering it is more complex, with the base of bell's best brown, the souring process, and then raspberry aging.

M - More lively than WO. Seems like the brewing process, or perhaps the aging process has ended with a beer that is more carbbed than WO. Much more pleasant mouth feel.

O - This is a knockout beer. The difference between it and WO are profound. The tartness, balanced with the sweet raspberry is excellent. Overall, I look forward to more WO hybrids from Bell's. I think they got it down.
