4.22/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
A - pours a slightly hazy gold with a fluffy two-finger head. Not much staying power, but some very nice lace is left behind.
S - lemony citrus first, with some bready yeast and mushroom. Barnyard funk for sure, but more in the style of a Brett-spiked saison than a sour. Big yeast in the aroma, but not in the expected lacto sour way.
T - lemon first, followed by the same bready/earthy/funky yeast flavors. Some peachy stone fruit comes through, but the flavor stays in the more saison area, with a light dash of tartness. Sour would be an incredible overstatement.
M - soft and creamy. Light bodied, with a crisp, clean finish.
D - very, very high. This would be a great intro to this style of beers, before moving to more extremes in sourness.
Quite unlike the other RR sours. Not nearly as tart, with more earth and bready components. Infinitely drinkable, a fine beer, even if it doesn't rely compare with it's brethren.
Serving type: on-tap
