look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

2009 Vintage poured into a sniffer.

A: From initial opening of the bottle foam slowly filled the top of the bottle and poked out of the bottle spout. Oddly when pouring there is not much head, and what head is there faded fast. The beer looks like a dark murky brown with a light white film of head.

S: The first smell of this beer is so crazy, you can tell from the first sniff this baby is going to be sour. Major influences of the wine barrels and wine grapes in the nose. A touch of sour cherries in the nose too.

T: Such a complex sour, from one taste its tarty, the next its very sour, the next you think you might of took a sip of wine.

M: This had a very good mouth, left my mouth feeling very soured.

O: This bad boy is a rough sour, just the way I like it. I am going to see how long I can save this one. I dare say this one may be better then what comes out of RR.
