375ml bottle from RR online. pours a hazy orangeish red with an off-white head that stuck around longer than most sours iíve had. nose has wonderful brett to it works very well with sour cherries, lots of oak, and subtle hints of yeast and pinot. flavor is very oaky and bretty, sour, cherries, and pinot rounds the beer out. not as watery as other RR sours seem to me. easily my favorite RR iíve had yet. well done Vinnie!

Bottle from RR online. Nose is less extreme than I expected at first, but still very pleasent. Sour cherries are beginning to be evident as the beer warms a bit, lots of heady bacteria (yum)., a little oak, and a deifinite red wine funk that just works so well. Deep oranage amber with small head that continually fades even after swirling. This is such a nice beer. Shockingly sour flavor with an inceredibly subtle, yet rich, cherry flavor in the finish. A little lemon and lime were also noted. The juices, not like Sprite or any shit like that. One of the best. Thanks Vinnie!

375ml from RR Store. Had side by side with Rodenbach Grand Cru 750 ml. Both in Damnation glasses and breathing for about 10 minutes. Supplication hazy and copper/amber as opposed to clear cherry red. Both with a sweet/tart sour acidic aroma but supplication with some brett funk in addition.Both had perfect body after warming. Rodenbach had more of a sweet/tart sharp taste.Whereas Supplication had pleasant sweet/tart taste with some brett funk which did not overwhelm but added character. Overall I canít pick a winner. In my mind De Dolle Speciaal Brouwsel 20 was slightly sharper with more character than either the Supplication or the Rodenbach Grand Cru. But the De Dolle was over 2 years ago. Temptation was more musty and Le Woody was less balanced.

Bottle poured a clear light amber/red color with no head. The aroma was loaded with oak, cherry, wine, funk, funk and more funk. Taste was very tart and sour with a vinous oak flavor. The finish was a nice cherry mixed with a puckering brett taste that was just tame enough to enjoy. Overall not my style yet still very enjoyable.

Bottle- sorry J. A gusher. Barely got half a glass. The rest is all over the kitchen. So Iíve has sour brews that were overpowering (La Folie) and sour beers that were awesome (Cuvee de Tomme). This one is somewhere in between. A ltad bit overpowering, but finish is really nice and sweet w/ cherries.

Bottle from the RR store. Thanks. I have wanted to try this one for a really long time, for a few reasons: one - its from Russian River, and two - its a sour ale aged in red wine barrels. Plus the added bonus of some cherries! Pours a dark brown color with a thick yellow head that disappears as quickly as it forms. The smell is sour cherries, some red wine notes, but mostly it smells like you chopped open an oak tree and smell into the middle of it. Fantastic smell. Taste is full of sour and oak notes, with a little bit of cherries but mostly it is dominated by the pinot barrel flavor. Very light and easy to drink, this is really good stuff.

Tap. Well I am still not totally into this style. This one pours with a brown color. Aromas of cherry and citrus. Flavors are tart, not too sour but quite intense. Probably as sour as I can handle.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 17, 2007
Pours with a bright amber body topped by a thin, fizzy head with little lacing left on the glass. Itís sour, tart and vinious with a sour cherry note and an underlying chocolate note that compiments the cherry very nicely. Light bodied, crisp and dry.

Fricken fantastic. Just a really well done beer that if handed to you in a glass not knowing what it was would just make you stand up and dance. Pours amber/copper with a tall white head. Very nice funky brett taste, earthy, musty, dry, with a sour finish. Cherries and wood shine in the high carbonation with a tart finish that keeps you fully refreshed thinking you might find a way to finish off that monster of a bottle by yourself, maybe tuck it under your jacket while no one is looking and go and hide under the porch and sip away in peace.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2007
Pours a brassy red with an open bubbled white head. The aroma is a sharp sour fruit. Cherry and other dark fruits with a brett based musty character. Great sourness and funky on the nose. The flavor is a mellowed tart fruit full of sour cherries and funky flavors. Sharp combination of vinegar, red wine, grapes, vinous, and saltiness. Even a funky fermented fruit with only a tiny hint of alcohol coming through. Mouth watteringly sour on the finish.
