COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Toronado 25th Anniversary Ale started out as six individual brews, each with their own personality, and all incorporating Brettanomyces and or micro-organisms. Once the barrel aging was complete, Russian River’s Vinnie Cilurzo and Toronado’s David Keene got together to create the final blend. To create its fine carbonation, we refermented the Toronado 25th Anniversary Ale in this bottle. Spent yeast cells form a thin layer of sediment in the bottom of this bottle. Pour slowly, allowing the natural yeast sediment to remain in the bottle.
From the label: The beer inside this bottle is for consumption only. This bottle is not a collectable bottle unless it is empty.

Bottle shared by Dan. Huge thanks for a big want. Modest oak aroma in the nose with dried fruit, cherries, light vanilla. Nearly flat, very clear Amber to red color. Taste is initially sour with a moderate vinegar note. A moderate alcohol warming presence but never hot. After I become accommodated to the sourness, the taste is moderately complex and full of dried fruit. Really good.

Bule (2276) - California, USA - APR 23, 2016
750ml bottle pours a copper color with a bit of head. Funky aroma. Stomach acid sourness at first, which eases with some time to breathe. Nice balance of fruit, funk and sour in typical RR style.

Bottle @ Deans Sticky Bomb Shelter Tasting, thnx to the crew for sharing! *Sidenote* Last sample of the bottle*** Poured a murky, brownish headless beer. Aroma is tarty, hints of vinegar and white fruits are present. Flavor has woody influences, subtle tartness, no real harshness from the vinegar. The tartness picks up after swallowing, making it quite stringent in the finish. Overall very nice, would hope to see this again to have a better sample.
