A: Cloudy golden amber with lots of medium and large bubbles rising fast. 3 fingers of yellowish head has a sheen to it like candy glass, and fades moderately fast.

S: Fruity, I get pears and lemons, apricots and peaches, stone fruits galore, a sweet jam jelly component and the tart pectin of sour fruits all at once.

T: A sour fermented pear and nectarine first hits the tongue, followed by fruity apricots and a jam like sweetness that is subdued. A good hit of Belgian yeasts reminding me of a good tripel or farmhouse ale is definitely present. A snow like quality as well.

M: Medium thick body, medium carbonation, dry finish.

O: Amazing brew. Got this in Charlotte, NC, drank in Jacksonville, IL, Aug 11-12th, 2014. Been wanting this one for a while, and finally got my hands on it. My second Russian River Collaboration beer.

3.8/5  rDev 0%

A: Clear copper, some loose bubbles and streams rise quickly. Murkier as I approach the end of the bottle. Champaigne-quality head with better retention. Artwork hints towards a retro-70's coloring and font, a little bland, but concise and clear.

S: Wildflower, honey, tart fruit, a bit of spice. Maybe a little of the classic 'malt and yeast' smell.

T: Tartness is all up front, and a little mild; afterwards I get herbacious notes, some yeast, and rounded off with malt. Dry. Yeasty finish. I would prefer more of the tart-sour character to come through, and would expect it seeing from the refermentation with brett. Maybe it needs more aging?

M: Light, dry, prickly. Perfect combinations for a refreshing effect.

O: Pretty darn good, consider my S & T scores to be 3.87- falling just short of getting rounded up to 4. A good mix of flavors and smells, but they somewhat trip over and end up hindering each other. A beer I will always enjoy, despite some minor shortcomings.
