375ml. bottle (batch #5), shared by Dak, (many thanks). Pours a hazy golden/yellow, with medium white head. Aroma is amazing, citrus interlaced with funky brett. Lemon, grapefruit and some yeast. Taste is sour/citrus, with big lemon and grapefruit notes and some oak lingering in the background. Finish is sharp, clean, quite refreshing, and somewhat bitter. This ale completely hit the spot on a hot Phoenix afternoon. The best Russian River I’ve tasted to date!

Sampled at Mechazilla’s epic insanity tasting session. Lovely sour fruit character with berries and lemon, good tartness, funky notes, oaky dry finish. Pretty smashed at that stage of the tasting but remember loving it.

Bottle shared at Mechazilla event. Huge sour white grapefruit and apricot aromas with tons of oak and bit of gooseberry-like tartness perceived. Bone dry with lowish carbonation. The sourness with the oak notes are just marvelous. More apricot and grapefruit, some lemon too in there. Finishes dry with a fresh fruit and bright tartness. Fantastic. My favorite from the night.

Dry tart funky goodness. You would think this beer was a gueze from Belgium. One of the best American barrel aged sours I've had. Thanks Brian

Bottle from Michael (misterburd) -- cheers, I’ve wanted to try it for a long time! Blind taste test at home with this and Allagash’s Coolship Resurgam, and Beatification was the unanimous favorite of everyone who tried it. It’s a beautiful clear yellow with a tiny bit of a head that fades away almost immediately and a great spritz carbonation. The taste is unbelievable -- bright sour apple notes with a clean, light body and just the right type and amount of funk. Really reminiscent of the best Belgian lambics. Mind bogglingly good!

Lots of grapefruit on the nose, and one of the best american wild ales. Not overly tart, but a little less going on than Supplication, IMO. A wonderful trat that I would love to drink again!
