Smells of fruit with a hint of wine in the background. Light golden color. Taste is a little funky but balanced. Tastes a bit like wine. Highly carbonated mouthfeel. Overall very good.

Definitely the Chardonnay of beers. Not too sour for enjoying as a boozy session ale.

Bottle. Hazy gold/orange with a thin snow white head. Aroma is apricot, citrus, a little rubbing alcohol and musty/cheesy funk. Taste adds some lactic notes and white wine barrel. Medium spritzy palate. Excellent.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
End of day beer, gardens at Stone.
Temptation - Russian River
BA wild ale
APPEARANCE: Pours a kings crown gold with a brilliant star-bright glow coming from the bottom of the glass. Small thin white soapy head that dissipates into a halo that stays the entire time I'm drinking.
AROMA: Beautiful bouquet on this beer, huge sour tartness initially with loads of lemon and hay blended together. Perfectly ripe green apples, grapes, white wine notes and oakiness.
TASTE: My taste buds are playing celestial trumpets. A perfect marriage of sweet and sour. Like drinking a Chardonnay with lemon zest on top. Sour grapes and slightly sweet grassy notes. Nice faint flavors of barrel and malt.
MOUTHFEEL: Light plus body with a medium dancing carbonation. Funky, dry long lasting finish.
OVERALL: This beer was the perfect outside right before sunset 75 degree choice. Super refreshing and easy drinking. I am just starting to explore into the world of sours, out of all the RR sours I've had this is by far my favorite.
RATING: 4.5/5 Zombie Heads!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Beechners Blind Bash. Thanks to DrewFace. Faint cider like aroma (could be the beer next to it though, as it turned out). A strong lemon aroma and taste. A chest thumping acidic punch in the flavor/mouthfeel. A bit herbal and spicy. Overall enjoyable.
