4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2012 Batch #005......Aroma is very funky, it has agrapefruit notes but a bit less lemon in the nose than the last batch. Appearance is a yellow color with a bit of orange when held up to a light. Taste is very satisfying. Very similar to what I remembered in batch #004. It has notes of white pepper and citrus that go together beautifully. This is an amazing beer. Easily my favorite sour/wild ale from Russian River. Refreshing is a good way to describe this beer.
Batch #004........Aroma is full of funk, it also carries a certain lemon rind or citrus in the nose. The appearance is a crystal clear golden color with bubbles streaming off the bottom of the glass. The taste is very nice. The sour notes come through very crisp and clean with some grapefruit flavors coming through. It is a very drinkable beer and it definitely doesn’t lack flavor.
Tasting at Tokyo Midtown. Batch 008. Light yellow pour, cloudy. Light acidic nose and some spicy oak in the nose. White currants. Taste has more barrel, woody and quite acidic. Feels fresh, bone dry, more white currants and spicy oak. Definitely a living classic. kathouse (1930) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Nice golden color with just the right amount of tartness. Light and refreshing without too much sweetness. llkc (2662) - århus, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2017

Draft at the brewpub. Aroma of tart, horseblanket, citrus, vanilla, oak and funk. Rich taste of horseblanket, funky barnyard, oak, vanilla, soft tart, green apples and a long tasty dry finish. A true californian lambic.
