4.09/5 rDev -0.7%
750 ml bottle, vintage 2012, poured into a tulip glass.
A- Pours a murky orange-ish ochre color, produces a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates.
S- Nice tartness, wheat, blackberries, cherry, vinous oak and vanilla. Smells very nice.
T- A restrained fruitiness is the first thing you notice, blackberries as well as red grape and cherry. Tartness is present more towards the finish, but remains relatively restrained. There's also a dry mustiness, some oak and a bit of vanilla.
M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel with a very dry finish.
O- A solid, if not stellar, sour. There's a nice amount of complexity here, and it's very drinkable stuff. Hopefully we'll see more beer in this vein from Rivertown in the future.

Poured from a bomber
A - light red almost purplish hue in a otherwise translucent orangish appearance. White foam, good head retention.
S - smells lactic-y sour, some berry fruit notes, little bit of vinegar grape
T - pretty good punch of sour right off the bat, lactic sour that hit in the back of the jaw bone. I like sours sour, and this one delivers. There is some fruity over tones. Not much in the way of blackberry, if I really thought about it, you can pick up some slight fruit peel type blackberry. Really good.
M - medium carb, medium feel
O - haven't tried a whole bunch of sours, but I really liked this one. It was plenty sour, but also had a nice mellow flavor profile that matched well with the level of sourness. If I had access to this, I would pick it up regularly.

750mL bottle poured into pint glasses due to lack of glassware - thanks for this extra, I forget who sent it at the moment
Hazy golden orange pour with a pinkish hue. Crop of white head dissipates pretty quickly, leaving little retention or lacing behind.
Acidic fruit in the nose with funky yeast and dark fruit. Blackberries and oak with red wine and grape skins.
Snap of biting sourness up front with blackberries, red grapes and currants. Oaky and vinous with plenty of red wine character and an earthy touch. Funky wild yeast, barnyard and jammy berry fruit sweetness. Mild backbone with oak and red wine, followed by continuing acidic sourness in the finish.
Medium body, higher carbonation, bubbly, dry and lingering on the tongue. A solid dark wild ale with plenty of berry fruit flavor, but doesn't quite stack up to some of the top flight sour producers.
