Poured from a corked & cage bottle into a Duvel tulip
A- pours a very cloudy shade of dark yellow with an INSANE four finger pure white head. The head is very puffy, and while lacing is minimal, the sheer size of the head is enough to negate that factor. As for the beer itself, it looks a lot like your standard witbier...maybe a little darker.
S- getting a lot of lemon out of this one. Honestly? It smells like a top of the line witbier. Of course, I know it's NOT a wit, but that's what I'm reminded of so far
T- sour, sour lemons. It tastes like one of those awesomely fresh Italian gelatos made with lemons off the tree. The pucker is definitely there, and it's a much lighter one than you'd get with a Sanctification or a Supplication. I love it
M- the texture is perfect. Again, I come back to the witbier analogy...it has the feel of a witbier, but with a little more thickness. Can't get much better
O- dear Russian River, thank you for making this beer again. It is absolutely amazing. I want as much of it as I can get. Fantastic stuff
