A Note on This Beer
You wouldn’t expect anything basic from a brewery with a name like Strange Roots Experimental Ales — and their inventive Wild Ales never disappoint, either!
Breaking Brews podcast raves Strange Roots has “grown an incredibly loyal fan base by continuing to push boundaries with their wild, sour offerings.”
Up to their no limit antics again, the mad scientist brewers used real Concord grapes to make a Wild Ale as juicy as Kool-Aid.
But, their Koel-Aid is far from a cloying, sugar-water kids’ drink! Strange Roots executed some serious craftsmanship, spontaneously fermenting and cask-aging this concord grape juice-blended brew.
The result is a tart, funked out, grape escape that’s turning heads in the beer scene. Fans are cheering:
- “Forgot how damn good this is.” @Jason E.
- “Straight up like grape kool-aid with a kick. Love it!” @Kevin M.
- “Reminds me of frozen Welch’s from childhood :) and holy s#!+ 9% ABV!” @Tara B
Are you looking for something basic? If so, this brew isn’t for you. Step aside and let the adventurous beer fans get some!

A bit to sweet for my liking
Relatively astringent for something that has such a sweet reputation. Think they need to be more mindful of brix if they deal with grapes.
Grape forward and not too sweet. Pretty nice sour.
This thing was SKRONG. Really glad it was available in larger amounts than usual! Wasn’t the grape kool aid I was expecting, more like a sparkling wine actually. All my friend loved it too!
Good sour taste. Almost like a wine
like a welch’s grape juice
It tastes like wine. The girls will like this one. Lots of grape flavor with every sip. Not tart or sweet a fine grape medium.
I'm sorry... This tastes like they took welches grape juice added the worst bread yeast avaliable to make prison wine and then carbonated it. It tastes like a slice of bread dipped in 3 week old communion wine and left in a paper bag to. I didn't even bother to choke it down, I thought my septic tank deserved it more than me. And believe me I felt bad for the tank. Faaaaail and I bought 2 cans of this :'(
Tart and tasty. Definite re-buy
Nice sour base with a wine like flavor.
Ok I got this to be funny. Buy goddamn this was just too good. And at 9% ABV you hardly taste the boozes. It's like a twisted grape soda. Love it. I hope it pops up on here so I can buy it again or search for it separately.
Like a cross between gas station wine and a 4loko. Not my best purchase to date
Strong grape skin taste
Sparkling sour grape juice. Dangerous for 9% abv.
Tastes like wine with slight concord grape flavor
Tastes like kook aid too me! Not very sour, def Welch’s grape juice vibes.
Bitter and sour. It tastes like grape but not in a pleasant way.
Very faint grape flavor
Ok. Not my favorite.
What a sour should taste like…sour!
Very sour. I did get the nice Concord grape flavor but wish it was more tame in the sour area.
