4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 375ml bottle into a Spiegelau tulip. Bottled on 5/30/14 printed on label.
Appearance: Pours a clear medium gold with a 1 1/2 finger snow white head of fine bubbles. Small sediment particles floating around. Solid head retention with minimal lacing.
Smell: Tons of barnyard funk from the Brett. Mild fruit notes in the background.
Taste: Typical brett funkiness along with a bit of pear up front followed by a nice amount of tart apple cider in the middle before ending with bitter citrus and a little bit of grassy hops. Aftertaste is funky with a touch of bitterness. After pouring in the sediment (review completed before drinking sediment), this thing is off the charts funky - in a good way.
Mouthfeel: Light-to-medium-bodied with a good amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: Good drinkability. You could put back a couple of these without any issue.
Overall: Very good beer overall. As with most Russian River offerings, this is definitely worth trying. Highly recommended.

Great Brett beer and wine like too. Barnyard and wet floor. Some light blue cheese molds as well. Flavor tart and finishes like dry white wine. Great balance of different bacterium.

Draft to taster at RR brewpub
Lemon, yeast, candy, very light yeast.
Light yellow with a thin white head. Taste starts off sweet, like candy, but that is cut with a sour kick.

Yes Brett. Horsey woody and wine like. No Thor beer really like it. Some tartness and sour white wine character. Nice mouthfeel finished pretty dry.

375ml bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours unclear yellow with a white head. Aroma is funky, apples, a little barnyard, hay and citrus. Medium sour and a little salty. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Finish is crispy, citric and funky.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Funky wild yeast specific aroma. Taste is very balanced, sour but not quite in the lambic territory. Although there are no fruits added, it makes you think of white grapes, white gooseberries, white mirabelle plums. Overall this is an excellent sour, very balanced and easy drinking.

Sampler at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Hazy yellow color with all white head. White-winey, apples, good funk, even a bit barnyard. Light apples, funk, citric, spicy, a bit herbal. But it all stays smooth and light and easy to drink. Amazing how a beer can be this complex, light and easy-to-drink at the same time!

Nicely carbonated not too fizzy but just enough for small white head and the best part to bring out the horse barn and hay roll out. Some slight Belgian ripe tart Apple. Flavor of a super well balance of lemon tart and goat cheese and plain sour yogurt. Awesome brew!
