These do not disappoint. Meaning, the RR sours. Sour esters with a hint of wood and grain. A golden brown color with hits of red. Nice foamy head. Full and dry palate. Big flavor of tart fruit, caramel grain and a funky sharp finish. Refined and complex.

Bottle. From memory after having this off the shelf before BeerBro came online. Aroma of spring cherry, slightly spoiled milk, funk. Taste is very big cherry, sour, barnyard.

Russian River is always great. You have to like sour ales. Good color. Aroma of cherries gives nice start and finishes well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle. Vinous aroma with notes of cherry. Pours orangish-brown with a lot of carbonation and a thin white head and absolutely no lacing. Rich carbonation in the mouthfeel. Starts quite smooth actually with the sweetness of the cherries coming through nicely. Finishes very tart with the cherry flavor lingering as well as a vinous red wine character that lingers on the palate. Excellent sour.

Pours a vibrant copper color, hues of gold/pink. Small head, fine carbonation. Aromas of tart cherry, wet oak, cobweb, grape skin and light earthy notes. Taste is very tart upfront, acidic, vinous and loaded with oak. Notes of citrus, fresh cut flowers and an herbal accent make appearances. Lively carbonation keeps the tart present throughout. Finishes very crisp and dry. Excellent American Sour/Wild.
