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.

Straw colored, no head. Nice tart and slightly funky flavor. Nice but I don’t get the hype.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch 5 bottle (3 yrs aged) and batch 6 (1.5 yrs aged) bottle side by side. Batch 6 from trade with dogday. Batch 5 from northernbrews. Thanks! Clear gold pour from both, big frothy head that fades normally to a messy film. Excellent appearance. Batch 5 is more funky for sure. Strong funky sourness that’s hard to describe. Definitely getting cheese and strong barnyard, wood, citrus, some light apple and pear too. Taste is very sour but remains drinkable somehow. Very intense. Apricot, lemon, vinegar, cheese, brett, and wood. Awesome stuff. Batch 6 is pretty much the same but just less intense which makes it a little less great.

Bottle share at Bruce’s birthday drinks craft beer co. Huge thanks to Bruce for that rare treat. Batch #6. Aroma is huge in your face funk, sharp citrus, baby puke, bile. Light hazed yellow straw coloured pour with a small white head. Flavour is crisp lemon, little wheat, funk, horsey, clean sharp lacto, many layers of complexity. Palate is medium full, spritzy carbonation and uber sharp, uber dry I’m the finish. Awesome.
