Bottle thanks to dbuckingham, thanks man! Pours a hazy dark yellow with a thin white bubbly head and some spotty lacing, aroma is tart at first, but the brett and dryness really comes through as well, the front end of the flavor was much more fruity than I was expecting, with a good amount of funk and some barnyard notes in the finish, pretty tart in the finish but not mouth puckering sour, mouthfeel is light and tingly, the abv is completely hidden, would have thought this was 5%, pretty damn good.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 On tap at city beer SF. Pours a straw yellow with a frothy white head. Superb lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of grapes, funk, lemon zest, Chardonnay and biscuit malts. Taste is quite tart up front then settles. Chardonnay like bitterness clings to the palate with a lemon zest making for a refreshing crisp finish. Palate coated in oak from the Chardonnay. Aging has worked a treat - booze is disguised beautifully. World class beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
Serving type: bottle
