Incredibly sour and fruit nose, matched on the palate. Waves of tannins, vinegar, light funk, and red wine, finished with strong berry notes.

Bottled Date 21 August 2015.

I did not age this myself. I ordered this online and they send me a 3.5 year old bottle which judging by the overall experience, it was not stored in optimum conditions.

This one poured a lovely very dark orange to pale red color with a fluffy white head. Low retention. Disappeared after 1 minute or so. Mouthfeel was light with matching carbonation. I detected heavy incense notes with very light notes of forest fruits. Taste was smooth vinegar and unripe raspberries. A shame I didn't get to try this fresh.

one of the best wicked weed beers i have ever had, obviously popular for a reason. the color is unreal, neon and bright, so sexy, and the smell, oh my, its straight raspberry tartness and blackberry jam, fresh fruit and preserves with a lot of wine fruitiness too, oak and tannins, as well as a pretty darn robust bacterial sourness, its intense from first sniff to last sip. a good head on it, white on top of the pink, looks like frosting. the fruit is amazing in nose and taste, but this is also heavily soured, so bacterial and intense that its hard to drink much of, and it sits in the belly a little harsh, but i have to say, i think i prefer this to too much sweetness from the fruit, which there certainly isnt here. more raspberry than blackberry, but thats sort of always the case, plum and cherry notes from the red wine barrels. anyone who has any negative thing to say about these guys after them being acquired by bud needs to drink one of these and be honest with themselves, its one of the best beers with this combination of fruit i have ever had, and really is some of their best work. i had a blast here, loved everything i drank, but this was one of the standouts for sure. next level sour right here! very low ph, but the flavor is epic.

Hazy amber color with beige head. Aroma is really fruity with nice blackberry fruit puree and some red wine notes. Taste is dry, fruity, juicy with pulpy berry flavors, not very sour, quite easy to drink. Medium body and carbonation. Quite complex yet clean fruited sour.

Wicked Weed proves why they are the best at what they are famous for (Sours). Nice cherry and blackberry notes with a red wine feel. This is what a sour is meant to be. Don't ignore it because all your friends are saying "its InBev"
