4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2015 Pours a hazy yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma is sour lemon, funky brett, nice barnyard over lactic citrus. Taste follows, nice lactic tartness with big funky barnyard notes, citrus base, prefect for what you would think.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A more pronounced sour. Citrus and apple tart aroma. Pretty crystal golden color with a big foamy head. Palate was very wine-like. Tartness was up front and more like apple than lemon. Finish was somewhat dry. The funk was a little less. A little more one-sided than I typically prefer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
"ok, Russian River knows what theyíre doing with the Belgian style. This is one of the better ones Iíve tried. Iíve only had it on tap...hopefully, as itís corked, itís just as good in the bottle. A little pricey, but worth trying. had for the third time last night-just a sample, but itís grown on me a little (not that i didnít like it before). the brett & barreling seemed more aggressive this time, which was a good thing. near mouth-puckering yuminess."

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a golden slightly hazy. Very little head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of tart citrus with hints of oaks. Characters of white wine and brett also come through. Flavors of chardonnay with a definite sour punch. Very dry and tart with a oaky finish. Extremely complex and very good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375 ml, bottled on 6/18/14, purchased at RR. Clear gold with fizzy carbonation with thin head in a snifter. Served slightly chilled at 49 degrees. Aroma is white wine, oak and mild Brett.
Flavor has lots of white wine throughout. Lightly tart with a precancerous of yeast. Turns sour in the back end, with nice oak character. The carbonation a lividly zing over the tongue, great effervescent pop. The texture is dry and crisp with a medium body. Damn! The wine, oak and Brett are married together in a beautiful threesome. If you know me and my feelings on sours, you will understand how much this impresses me; based on my score.
