Notes: A mixed culture wild ale fermented and aged in oak for 8 months. During aging, we added local elderberries from Thornhill Farm in Greensboro, VT, giving this beer a bright red, almost pinkish hue along with strong tart berry flavor.

Served on tap at brewery.
Pours a gorgeous glowing ruby color with slight haze. Half a finger of pink head.
Aromas are a lot of beautiful yeast. A bit of berry.
Flavors showcase the berries a bit more. Perfect level of sourness.
Mouthfeel is excellent.
Overall...a gorgeous sour beer with local fruit. Incredible.

On tap at the brewery.
The appearance was a nice looking dark pink close to bright red color. Nice semi-thick two finger white foamy head glided off at a good pace. Light trickling lace glossed the sides of the glass.
The aroma had sweet and tart elderberry up front. Bold and enthralling, and a light strawberry to balckberry underscore helped make this beer smell absolutely amazing.
The flavor had a fantastic balance of berry sweetness and tartness. Some sour character had a nice dose underneath. Mild aftertaste of sweet and tart blended berries.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Good carbonation and ABV. The sour pucker factor maintained a light underneath score. Slight tart and sweet berry finish.
Overall, an amazing fruited sour ale well worthy of coming back to preferably in warmer weather.
