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"

Bottle date 6-1-17. My first try of this exceptional beer-sour. Wonderful berry notes with a tart sour finish. Bottle just didn't last long enough for me. After 1, you will likely want a follow-up. Wish WW would put these in 4 packs to say the least. Don't deny yourself due to Inbev. This is a very pleasant experience.

Burgundy highlights punctuate a coppery-colored beer with a light tan head that fades in seconds. The red wine barrel is prominent on the nose, as are the blackberries and raspberries. Smells magnificent.

The taste is funky and sour, with raspberry and blackberry notes dominating (obviously), but there's also an earthier note that stops this short of Puckerville. The mouthfeel is sublime, with a spritziness that keeps you reaching for your glass. Just an excellent representation of the style, IMHO.

On tap at the brewpub.

A: pours a translucent burgundy red. Little head retention.

S: strong lactic acidosis and Brett - strong berries. More sour than berry.

T: BlackBerry notes and sour, raspberry kind of fades to the back. Some notes of darker fruit.

M: extremely fresh - bubbly.
