5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
DLD ’11. Huge thanks to lushawn and phaleslu for this incredible hookup. Side by side with Beatification batch 3, similarities were fairly prevalent. Aroma had notes of thick raspberries, with notes of funky cheese, horse sweat, barnyard and some big lemony acetic sour notes with a touch of sweet vanilla hidden. Taste is raspberry, but not just the raspberry, but the whole plant. Notes of sweet raspberry fruit, bitter seed, some vegetal stem, with notes of all funky cheese, horse blanket, sweaty socks, some slight sweet vanilla and bready notes, finishing really dry tannic and oaky with a further lemon acetic sour note. Perfect in every regard to me.

Russian River Framboise for a Cure. 375ml bottle courtesy of jeff...
Pours a semi-transparent light red grapefruit pour with some mild
sediment existing and suspending/levitating throughout... Aroma is funkiness
upfront much similar to that of beatification with an adequate
raspberry following which holds up well to the aforementioned
horseblanket qualities. Berries are still quite prominent and nicely
balances the funk. Almost a red grapefruit like presence permeates which, from what i recall, a characteristic of beatification ... Flavors are much of the
same with a genuine horseblanket like funk quality to it with a berry and red
grapefruit component. Acidity high but held in check. Quite drinkable
and lovely actually. Clean and well-crafted. Must try this again if/when the opportunity presents itself. Hope that Vinnie/Natalie choose to make this an annual offering.
