hmm, follow a Temptation with a Sanctification.... in what universe is that a good day? where can you FIND two kinds of Russian River in one store on any given day? especially down here in orange county?
pours hazy golden, some sediment sitting heavily embedded as if in jello (just like the Temptation had!). too hazy to see, but an ear to the top of the tulip glass provides the 'popping' you can hear from the carbonation....
smells kind of 'neutral. bretts(?) are here, but not as fruity as the temptation I just had.
taste is way more rounder, much more sour-er, less fruity than the Temptation. more of a kind of 'champagne' kind of brew but very good indeed! definitely less fruit, but wholesome and obviously takes you in the direction they want you to go in. you KNOW it's meant to be a bit tart. definitely more of a 'sour' than the Temptation, and definitely another great brew from Russian River!!!
I think my next one HAS to be The Bruery's Tart of Darkness, just to keep the trend going....
