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.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
375 mL bottle poured into an RR -tion glass. Batch 5, bottled 1/10/2012. Pours a hazy golden-orange body. No much of a head. Small bit of white foam that settles to a ring of bubbles. Not really lively looking. Nice tart fruit aromas. Citrus orange and lemon. Good dose of white peppery funk, but it’s not anywhere near as strong as the best Belgian lambics. First sip is tart, quite tart. Loads of lemon tang to it. Fades quickly, though. Wheat and hay permeate the flavor as it fades to a peppery funk in the end. Again, it’s not moldy cheese funky or nasty sweaty feet sock funky, but it’s a touch funky. Finishes crisply and without a puckering sour flavor. It actually retains a bit of a sweetness. Just a hint. Lingering flavors are excellent. This is a well crafted beer. Finishes with just a touch of bitterness. Really pleasant sour. Easily the best from RR and definitely one of the best American Wilds out there.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle: Have had batch 004, 005, & 006. Review is based off of a fresh 005 bottle thanks to Tim. Dull, opaque & jaundice yellow pour with a small eggshell cap that wisps away quickly. Aroma gets the saliva glands sweating. Green apples, white grape, cherries, white wine vinegar, oak, sweat socks, dusty cotton; huge lactic acid & yogurt presence with a bracing lemon-like acidity. Flavor is sour as hell. Lemon flesh, sour apple, white grape, enormous drying acidity that nails the gum line back a few millimeters. Hay, sour lacto, yogurt, white wine, vinegar, muddled oak, a touch of sweaty funk. Dry finish. One of my favorite American attempts at a spontaneously fermented beer. So goddamn delicious.
