On tap at Russian River. Pours a slight beige head fades with lacing. Brown color with aromas of grapes, raisins, lacto, wood. Taste like aroma with sour finish. very well balanced. medium body and carbonation. Not a big fan of the ageing in Pinot barrels.

Des cerises pointues dans un enrobage pinot élégant. L’effervescence est brillante et aiguise les saveurs, bonne minéralité et finale sèche, vineuse.

Batch 3 was toasty, a bit woody and with just a slight tartness. The fruit was starting to drop out. Batch 4 was fairly clean with the acid, and with balanced fruitiness. Seemed in its prime. Batch 5-2 was fresh, tart, fruity, and stil a little bit yeasty. Batch 5-5 was the weakest of the bunch, malty, not very lively at all. A dud, if you will. Of the 5, the Batch 4 and Batch 5-2 were my favourites.

No retention and no lacing. Smells of Pinot noir, sour Cherri's and apples. Tastes of sour cherries and grapes.

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.
