Big thanks to todd1 for this bottle.

750 ml cork and caged bottle poured into a tulip. Batch 003.

Pours a stunning deep ruby with a rocky two finger off-white head that falls to a soft layer of bubbles. Sporadic lacing sticks to the sides of the glass with no intentions of letting go. Smell is much more than I was hoping for. Apples, grapes, and pears tickle the nose with an earthy undertone. Some caramel, freshly brewed lemon tea, and sweet honey. Very pleasant aroma, an absolute joy to sniff. Taste begins with more of the previous mentioned earthiness followed by sweet toffee and white grapes. Midway, more sweetness emerges with green apples and apricot followed by caramel and butterscotch. Aftertaste is slightly floral and fairly dry with a hint of cinnamon. The best part of the flavor (to me anyway) is the lack of Belgian yeast on the tongue. Medium body with a chewy and prickly feel from the high carbonation. Could be smoother, but still flows well between the cheeks. Scary thing, this is a borderline session beer to me. If I could get my hands on this on a regular basis it would be a constant in my fridge, perfect year round beer. Why this beer doesn't get more recognition is beyond me. I understand Russian River makes some of the best beers in the country, but this may be one of my favorites by Vinnie (next to Supplication). A permanent 'want' list brew for me.
