Santa Clara, Ca - Santa Clara Liquors - cage corked 375 ml bottle. Hazy dark golden pour with a reddish tint to it. Aroma has solid, enticing sourness to it, some raspberries, just a hint of vinegar. Flavor falls along the same lines with some burnt roasted notes thrown in there for good measure. Thick, sticky Delectable, Lip smacking food.

bomber to snifter this bottle was a july 2014 batch. poured a light cola color with no head. the initial aroma was total sour and brett and beautiful scents of oak and cherry. the flavor was every sour lovers dream. hints of wine and oak blended with cherrys and sour funk absolutely delicious.

The impetus for this particular rating comes from a 2012 3 Liter graciously shared by Adam C on 7/25/15, though I’ve had earlier baches (1-3) and never got around to rating it for whatever reason.
What to say about this guy?? Early on I was much more a Temptation guy, as some of the early batches had some diacetyl problems when relatively fresh. I also would take Batch 1 (001 or PH1) Beatification over this, as I think that one’s a bit more refined/elegant and I will certainly, though grudgingly, admit that Supplication is prone to HEAVY sourness. That being said, this is a masterfully well done beer, as are all of Vinnie’s sours and this one, when on is absolutely delicious. Lip puckering acidity from both cherry acids and bacteria hits early and lingers, but there’s a strong malt structure and enough residual sweetness to balance.
This particular bottle, with 3 years of age on it had considerably softened. Still a good deal of sour yogurt and grapefruit rind, but never gives off any acetone-like flavors I associate with too much sourness. Great mouthfeel/texture, with no astringency problems and a wonderful, authentic tart cherry flavor that does not overpower. Vanilla, oak and funky barnyard linger on with other complex fruit and barrel-driven notes. No alcohol noted in aroma or flavor.

Poured from a bottle. Amber orange with little head. Good sweeter aroma but the taste is too skunky for me.

Everything one would want here with A+ balance. Tart cherries soured wine, oak alcohol warmth and dry fruity finish. Absolutely outstanding.
