4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The pour is absolutely brilliant. One of the best looking beers I’ve seen. A vibrant pink-red color with a finger of foam that has some staying power.
S: As expected, an intense sourness to the nose. The acidity of the Sonambic really comes through and the raspberries provide their trademark acetic notes. The funky qualities are not as pronounced as I would have expected: just a bit musty. Slightly slightly oily with a mineral quality.
T: The tartness is quite pronounced and is an excellent blend of the big lactic character from the Beatification base and the fruity, acetic raspberry. The raspberry flavor is quite bold and are certainly the focal point of the beer. Again, there’s a bit of a lasting mineral quality to the beer, but I certainly wouldn’t call it metallic.
M: The body is medium with a lively carbonation. The beer is quite puckering and dry.
D: Nothing wrong with this one, as you would expect from a Russian River wild ale. I’m glad they’ll be making this again as I’d love to get my hands on some next year.
