look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
375 ml bottle consumed on 5/14/2011
A: Light gold and yellow in color and cloudy. Carbonation creates bubbling in the glass and a long lasting white head.
S: Powerful brett aroma, but what else would you expect from a beer that uses 100% brett.
T: Delivers tart and sourness throughout. This beer is not barrel aged and does not contain added fruits. That said, the taste is excellent and quite drinkable.
M: Carbonation provides bubbly feel to the palate. Very sour and dry finish.
O: An excellent wild ale from Russian River that competes well against their best sours. Sancitification provides clean delivery of a brett-based wild ale that is unadulterated from added barrel-aged or fruit flavors.
Although, this review is for Batch 5 (bottle), I have also had Batch 4 (bottle) and both of them on draft. There are definitely some variations between batches and drafts. My slight preference is for Batch 4, but Batch 5 is an excellent beer that should age well.

Poured on draft at the brewery. chalk board noted this was the 2013 batch, poured March 4, 2014. pours hazy yellow with white head. Sour apple aroma, vinegar, lots of Brett. Nice Brett on the flavor with sweet citrus fruits and lemon peel, some pears and green apples. Tart and lactic but not mouth puckering sour to deal with here. Very light and goes down easy with near spritzy carbonation. Really nice Brett beer that I would definitely have again.
Serving type: on-tap
