4.44/5 rDev +2.5%
Pours a beautiful golden yellow color with unreal clarity from the first-half pour. Fluffy head owes the lacing that it produces. Looks marvelous.
Lemon peel, old lemon peel, white wine, oak, tart peach, maybe apricot, and bright tartness. Balanced and fruity, all the while, a tart Russian River sour.
White wine, tart peach, sour orange, flooded basement, lemon pulp, oaky woodiness, tropical fruit, Brett mushroom funk, and parmesan. The mushroom and cheese really answers in the finish. Bottom of the bottle is offering up some serious funk and cheese. This is effing delicious.
Nicely effervescent with a peppery carbonation. Wet-bodied with some chewiness, whilst medium. Great feel.
Awesome wild ale from Russian River. Better than this is definitely hard to come by.

A: A very, very cloudy pale orange. Lots of fine sediment. Tall frothy and fizzy white head. Head sticks around for quite a long time. Big fluffy rings of lacing.
S: Lightly tart and fruity aroma. Citrusy with some pear perhaps? Citrus rind and funk when swirled.
T: Tart citrus and lots of it. Not quite full-on sour but close. Very lemony but maybe some orange peel in there too. A bit funky in the middle. Very light and crisp bready/cracker malt in the finish. Mild, drying citrus peel aftertaste.
M: Higher carbonation. Decent medium body.
O: Ahh, one of the best sours I've had. Had temptation last night but this is way better. Not as sour, not as wine-y. Very crisp and refreshing. Not as complex but it works well. Nice refreshing tartness. Really ups the drinkability. Not overpowering either; well-balanced. Really well made.
