On tap at the brewery, Santa Rosa, pours an orange rusty color without any significant head. Nose is tart and pungent. Taste is a pleasantly tart and pungent an just bathes and puckers the palate. Finishes as it starts with real tartness and pungency. Great sour. Quaff score 8 / 10

Pours a light yellow diaphanous with a solid fine white quilt. Smells of lemon, funk, zesty tartness and some nice pithy character. Flavor is sour with a good farmy, tart, hints of bicarb, some bits of pepper and a nicely refreshing finish. Thin with hi carb and watery finish. This might be one of my preferred RR beers. Really a beautiful brew.

A: c&c bottle pops and pours a light golden ale with excellent clarity. Atop is a blanket of white head which is constantly refilled with a continuous persistence of bubbling.
S: Oranges, limes, classic tart scent. Great smell.
T: Tart, farmy, with largely bitter head. Somegrassy tones.Very good.
M: Light body with excellent carbonation. Great feel and finish on the tongue.
D: This beer is wonderful. I can say I prefer supplication to this one. But when available, I still buy it.

Odense Beer & Ball Saturday - After the live games drinking session... Cloudy golden with a lasting white head. Juicy and inviting fruity brett character with just the right funky notes, complex American Sour-style oak and balsamic character, uper complex, dry and tart flavour with funk and oak, citrus, pineapple, oak, coconut and vanilla. A masterpiece

Bottle, 5/2013. Another banger from RR, I think this is the most gueuze-like of their main sours -- nice. Smell gives me lemon, apple, white wine, oak and more. Taste is moderately sour but well-balanced and full of flavor. Long evolving finish, lively mouthfeel.
