Excellent sour blonde! The nose had that somewhat flowery wine yeast & citrusy aroma. Explosive carbonation in the pour that hung around for awhile. There was no sweetness at all in the taste. The sour was smooth, not bitter. Didn't stay on the palate long after swallowing. Very refreshing summer beer IMO. Don't pour the bottom liquid of the bottle in your glass! That spent yeast taste is quite bitter and will sit on your palate for awhile! The bottle tells you not to do that, so that was my bad. Great offering from RR!

Batch 003. Pours a hazy straw with a thick white head that dissipates quickly. Nice lacing. Bread and Brett on the nose, with hints of lemon and fresh-cut grass. Sour on the palate with green apple and lemon notes. Dry finish. Light bodied with effervescent carbonation. Overall, a well crafted sour.
