look: 5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

poured into snifter, batch 112812

appearance: bright and light sunny yellow with a HUGE white foamy head with the pour that sticks around. its like whip cream on top of my beer. its awesome

aroma: stale wet woody/oaky nose, not much else. not very enjoyable

palate: light bodied, softly tart, not very acidic, not a big boozy presence. very well done

taste: lemon-grass, grapes, oak, some hops, brett, very robust

overall: not as tart as the other RR sours, not as powerful or as big bodied, but very nice, lots of unique flavors, scary drinkable, and overall a great beer.

Serving type: bottle
