Intro: A 12.7 fl. oz. bottle, 2016 vintage. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A purplish red colour with a one finger pinkish head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing.
Aroma: Blackberry, mixed berries, berry skin, oak, vanilla and funk.
Taste: Tart, lightly sour, blackberry, tangy mixed berries, vinegar and oak with some light vanilla.
Mouthfeel: Dry, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: A nice fruity Wild Ale, although I’d prefer it even more if the oak and vanilla flavours were a little lighter.
