4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Bigwood 12/6/12 [5 of 11].
Aroma: belgian golden ale, yeast, malty sweetness. Like a dubbel with extra spices (nutmeg, cloves).
Appearance: pale gold. One finger worth of nice frothy white head. Crystal clear. Nice but irregular lacing.
Taste: big sour up front (unexpected from aroma). Followed by noticeable hop bitterness before giving way to a sweeter finish in line with aroma. The transition is jarring, and not as harmonious as I've come to expect from RR.
Palate: medium body, nice carbonation.
Overall: this is still pretty great, but isn't in the same league as the others (1-4) I'm tasting side-by-side.
Note from Nick: "this is the best thing to ever come out of a chardonnay barrel. Write that down."

Draft at Fire on the Mountain, Denver. Clear gold, with moderate lacing. Nose is some sweaty brett, light tropical fruits, with some basement and minerality, white wine. Taste follows, all very subtle with nice lemon and light lacto tartness on the finish. Very smooth and drinkable, not beating you over the head with any one thing.

Review from notes. Golden color with white head. Aroma is tart and you get the barrel character along with some yeasty funk. Taste is sour, fruity, acidic and dry. Grape flavor is quite intense. Body is dry but somehow smooth and well carbonated. Really nice, clean and fruity sour ale.
