Bottle courtesy of Todd from Chicago. This beer has been on my bucket list for years. The pour is cloudy reddish brown with aromas of cherries, yeast and funk. This beauty sports flavors of tart cherries and yeast and sour funk. The cherries explode in this top notch sour. I would love to compare this against Supplication.

Hipster go to. Has all you need with loads of fruit, and super sweet tart. Always a good brew to have anywhere, cool to cold is best. Goes well with all food. Especially arugula and basal dressing.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
"had for the first time paired with Russian River Temptation...two WAAAAY different funky sours. this one is a somewhat traditional flemish sour, but the star here is the subtle cherry and oak lending an extra layer of complexity to what would have been a good-but-not-great beer. i liked it more and more as it went, but it falls just short of greatness. RR Supplication & Consecration are still the kings of the sour. It was better than Temptation, though, and that’s a good beer. I have one more bottle from the sinners club...after that, it might be it, as it’s too steep in price to revisit without quite blowing your socks off."

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flaska från SB. Rödbrun vätska, lågt snabbt försvinnande skum. Frisk syrlig doft med främst syrliga körsbär. Lätt sötma men relativt torr. Lättkropp, lätt syra men stora smaker av körsbär, plommon, körsbärskärnor. Fin syrlighet och riktigt gott.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375 ml bottle at home. Dark red brown color with beige head. Aroma is sweet funky with cherries and dusty barnyard notes, light bretty and wineous. The wood, the vanilla and some spicy notes give a complexity in the aroma that makes it great! Taste is light sweet, medium tart and light bitter, cherry fruity, funky bretty, wood, light spicy. Almost medium, oily body, soft carbonation, bitter spicy finish

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Almost perfect balance in flavor and nose from the wood, cherry, barnyard, sourness, malt and residual sugars.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 37,5 cl. Pours murky brown/red with blobs of yeast all over the off white, lasting head.
Aroma is sour vinegar, cherries, spices, vanilla, oak, and a bit of citrus.
Taste is very sour as well with almonds/marzipan, cherries, leather, lots of acidic fruits, and lots of spices. Cinnamon among others. Slight heat in the back of the throat from the strong tartness. Sparkling carbonation and a medium body. Lovely complexity and balance with sour and spicy notes. But it’s not a pretty beer.
