look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Just as I had to give this a perfect 5 when I first experienced it (and then over and over) at the Russian River brewpub in the August of '07, I have to do the same for this bottle, Bactch 003 that I brought back from that same trip. This bottle poured a beautiful clear golden with a generous white head. The smell is just sour. Also a bit funky/earthy as it warms up, but not overwhelming. The taste I can't really describe as anything other than sour but it's just so good to me. This is my favorite sour beer of all time, at least so far.
