This is a beer I was waiting for for a long time. Petes' Liquor in Tracy, check em out. Anyway, poured into a pint glass, served chilled. Pours with very little head, which dissipates quickly. It has a light amber color. Very bubbly, even after pour. Smells like an ale, and has a wonderful taste, almost a taste of cinnamon. It is a little dryer than expected, but still amazing. This beer is definitley worth the wait, and I highly suggest it to anyone.

Golden, clear body, and the vigorous carbonation streamers rising up from the etched nucleation site at the bottom of the Duvel tulip glass gave this beer an attractive appearance. The smell of brett induced funk mixed with green apples, honey, and lavender was very intoxicating. The taste provided everything promised by the smell, and then some. The palette was dry like a saltine cracker, with an initial sour apple and herbal flavor, that transitioned into white pepper, honey, and coriander. The finish had a hint of cheese from the aged hops and then faded into a cider like aftertaste. The funk of Brett was there, but did not overpower. This appears to be a beer made to enjoy both fresh, and after aging, and I would love to pick up a couple of bottles for the cellar, so to see how it evolves.

A-cloudy gold with a hint of orange and a thin white head

S-smells very tart. The Brett is very evident. It has an artificial sweetness to it. Has a Belgian pale aleness to it as well. Strong scent!

T-comes in with a pretty awesome taste of a lemon lime crispness and tartness. It has crisp Belgian grains as well. It's actually a great flavor. It's not strong but it's very refined with a great matching after-taste.

M-heavy carbonation with a crisp finish. It's pretty good.

O-this is a great sour ale. It's really not too sour really but there is a subtle tartness and it has great flavor. I'm impressed with the fusion of these two breweries. This is a great drinker. The higher abv is not apparent either.

I bought this last year and waited until a buddy came to town to open.

Appearance: like every good Russian River brew. Hazy golden amber.

Smell: Citrus with a bit of Brett funk.

Taste: sour hoppy liquid goodness. Not sure if it is better than last year but it aged well in my fridge.

Mouthfeel: soft and well balanced.

Overall: this is a very good brew from two great breweries. The Brett was lighter than other Russian River Brew offerings and is a great beer to introduce someone to the sour style. Sierra Nevada did their part and put together a good beer with RRBC. Usually, I'm not a big fan of Sierra Nevada, but this one is outstanding. If you can locate a bottle, this is worth a try. I'm going to buy all the bottles my hometown store has left. It will be interesting to re review in another year.
