Bottle (forgot the size). Poured into a snifter.

A- Pours a hazy golden color, white creamy head that recedes to a collar.

S- Smells great, lots of fruit, spice, peach, perfume and floral aromas.

T- A bit spicier than the aroma, with more floral, grassy, musty flavors, a bit of peach and lemon, some sweet grain. Tastes very good but the aroma really stood out in my mind.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel, a bit dry.

O- A very tasty beer, R&D Sour was definitely my favorite of the two, but I would be glad to drink this again any time.
