4.18/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
750mL bottle purchased from Monument Wine and Liquor for $9.99
Looks fairly below average. Very golden in color with a huge cascading head that dissipates quickly
Smell is very intoxicating. Sour, barnyard-y type that comes with the territory with Brett inoculated beers. This is described as a 100% brettanomyces beer with no sacchoramyces. And you can smell it. Very sour nose
Taste was good. Not as great as The Temptation or Supplication, but a very different beer as well. Sour, tart, lip puckering, but quite quaffable
Mouthfeel was ggod. The tart Brett doesn't make it undrinkable and it is quite balanced and under control
Drinkability is very good. I want another...oh yeah, I have 2 more sitting in my cupboard.
Another winner from Russian River

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.
