BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle thanks to the angrypirate06. RU-55 Drank while listening to RU486. Pours with a deep brown to mahogany hued body with a medium sized off-white head that fades relatively quickly. Aromas are of waxy, sundried and cara cara oranges, brett, wet wood and funk. Medium malt complexity, earthy, vinous, balsamic. Deep and complex. Flavors are of acid, mostly lactic with medium acidic. Deep malt overtones including toast, roast and caramel, massively vinous and strongly lactic. Pencil shaving and iodine. Good acidity. Slightly rustic with a negative connotation. Complex and quite sour, very light butyric acid. Very lively carbonation, dry. Feels bigger than 7.3%. Good, straight forward lacticly sour red. Overall nicely sour, with a slightly awkward but deep woodsy and waxy funk profile.
