look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a half-pint chalice.
A: Slightly hazy, light orange-amber color with a continuous peripheral ring of fine white bubbles. Scant lacing remains on the glass.
S: Fruit and yeast, including some pronounced brettanomyces, are found to be in excellent balance. Little sourness is suggested here, which contrasts the actual flavor.
T: Begins very dry, with bread, baker's yeast, and assertive cherries that marry well with the tartness and high acidity. Faint vanilla is present in the middle as fruit fades somewhat. The finish is mild by comparison, where lactic acidity stands out the most but bitterness is absent.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, acidic on the palate, with low carbonation.
D/O: This respectable sour has vestiges of Russian River Supplication, particularly in its yeast and fruit qualities. While distinctly sour, it lacks the sharpness of that other beer. It is well-rounded overall, with late lactic tartness and lingering fruit combining for a strong finish.

4.01/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottled on 04/17/14.
Pours a cloudy pink. The one inch white head fades to a thin ring on top and leaves spotty lace. The appearance is reminiscent of pink grapefruit juice cocktail.
The smell is of vinegar, barnyard funk, cherry skins and a faint unpleasant sulfur aroma.
The taste is of tart unripe cherries, white grapes and vinegar tartness.
The texture is light bodied with high carbonation.
Excluding the aroma, this offering hits the target on all aspects: Light and refreshing with tart cherry flavors, only the faint sulfuric aroma prevents this from being a top-notch sour.
