4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Definitely worthy of rating number 200. 2010 bottle. Pours a cherry amber with very thin head which settles to the rim quickly. Aroma is incredible - dark cherries, oak, vanilla, and plenty of funk. Taste is perfection for a sour ale - sour cherry but not overly mouth puckering and this is balanced nicely by the oak and the hint of pinot noir, funk there also. Amazing sour as usual from RR. Wish could have brought back more.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, by way of a trade. Hazy, orange copper colour. Dense, lasting, off white head. Nose has black cherry juice. Cherry stone. Soft brett. Touch of wet leather. Bit of dusty, cellar muddiness. Further to that there’s some plum and date. Plenty going on. Taste is dry, funky, stone fruit sour. Some stewed fruit bitterness. Mouthfeel is tangy, woody, and lightly sour. Bretty twang.
Some light, cherry lip sweetness. Clean, bright, tangy mouthfeel. Soft acidity. Cherry stone, tangy bitter finish. Lovely stuff.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 1/16 bottle thanks to Mike. Pours a crystal clear deep amber color with no head. Very okay, heavy sweet cherry notes. Slightly oxidized. Very soft carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Copper-ish color. Aroma of sour red fruit, malt, tart, mild vanilla and oak. Taste is quite sour, with red fruit, oak, brett tart, soft red grape, oak and some malt. Body is somewhat thin, finish is long and fruity. Nice, but a bit overrated.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
375 mL bottle. Not a pretty beer. Lotsa sour cherries in the nose. Red wine too. The flavour is a punch in the mouth, with no apologies. Lotsa cherries in the flavour too. Malt vinegar, red wine, brown sugar, medicine. Dry. Outstanding.

Russian River Suplication - aromat dziki, bardzo rustykalny z lekkim wspomnieniem wiśni. Pachnie jak typowy lambik. Smak średnio kwaśny lekko octowy, wisniowy, agrestowy, cytrynowy, winny.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2016 Tart nose, tart flavor. Seems a lot like a Granny Smith apple lying on the ground. Really don’t get the allure to people who enjoy drinking this.
