Art (2264) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2013
375ml bottle thanks to changeup45. WARNING: stout drinkers first sour. Have the pleasure of drinking a batch 4. After popping the cork I got a familiar aroma of red wine. Maybe some barley wine mixed in. Pours a murky brown color into my balloon tulip glass. Keeps a nice steady thin foam island in the glass. Slight lacing. Sip #1. Holy moly this is gross. OK not gross just not expected. "Give it a chance Art". I keep telling myself "Think wine". Sip #2. Another whiff. Funky aroma. I smell some cherries. Wow is this thing Sour! The taste reminds me of Warheads candies I had as a kid. Maybe a cherry warhead. I wish I had a comparison with a fresh one at this point but Iím sure this is a delicious beer to some. No concern that it has gone bad. Let me check back after Iíve acclimated a bit..............OK Iím back. Iím getting used to this. More cherries coming out now. Still super sour. Causing phlegm to build up. Be right back. ...............ok Iím still going strong. I hope this is entertaining to some. If you enjoyed this message me and send me some other top 100 sours. Iíll do the same. The sourness is tolerable now. I think this is probably how first time IIPA drinkers feel. Iím definitely going to revisit and re-rate this one later. So my last few sips have actually been enjoyable and have changed my perception of this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Russian River Supplication has a medium, white head, a murky, amber appearance, some noticed suspended yeast chunks, and low-level lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sourness, up front, but thereís a background maltiness, brown bread crust, fruitiness of a type, and the flavor is of tart cherry skins, semi-sweet malt, sour and sweet fruit, and essentially no bitterness. Even a nutty, woody, cherry seed. Also, barrel-aged wood. Mouthfeel is medium, and Russian River Supplication finishes semi-dry and exquisite. RJT
