4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2012 Batch #005......Aroma is very funky, it has agrapefruit notes but a bit less lemon in the nose than the last batch. Appearance is a yellow color with a bit of orange when held up to a light. Taste is very satisfying. Very similar to what I remembered in batch #004. It has notes of white pepper and citrus that go together beautifully. This is an amazing beer. Easily my favorite sour/wild ale from Russian River. Refreshing is a good way to describe this beer.
Batch #004........Aroma is full of funk, it also carries a certain lemon rind or citrus in the nose. The appearance is a crystal clear golden color with bubbles streaming off the bottom of the glass. The taste is very nice. The sour notes come through very crisp and clean with some grapefruit flavors coming through. It is a very drinkable beer and it definitely doesn’t lack flavor.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Thanks hackobock! Light hazy golden liquid with fast dissipating small head. Aroma of lemon, apple skin, wood, funk (almost like 3F funk!), very light grain and mineral. Taste is dry and medium sour with notes of apple skin, light wood, lemon, light grain and mineral. Light to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Super good. Very close to Belgian Gueuze. Very well brewed. Thumbs up!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fairly hazy bright yellow, no head. Boost of bretty grapefruitty good times on the nose here, soft fruity funk - a nice soft mix. Initial taste is a swoop of tartness, clean and gummy grapefruit with a dry sweetness backing things up. Carbonation is sleek but the mouthfeel is peppery and swift. Finishes vastly jammy, bretty and stewed tang. Linger is rich, tangy and lasting grapefruit funk. Deeeeeeelicious.

Aroma of lemony yoghurt, green apples, barnyard, hay with nice big lemon zest tartness. Taste is light vinegar, very sour, clear oak, a big vinous, ever so slight funk. Very straight forward and very nice beer.
