A: Light golden yellow color, a bit hazy, with a white head.

S: Orange, mango, and a touch of lemon.

T: Sour lemon, chardonnay, and a general citrus flavor.

M: Medium bodied, a bit astringent as most sours are.

O: A great sour from Russian River, but not nearly the best. Worth a try, as are all their sours.

Reviewed from notes. Sampled on 6/10/13.

375 mL bottle poured into a DFH signature glass. Bottled 11/28/12.

A - Good pop when I pull the cork. Bright golden in color with one finger of bright white, dense foam. Great retention.

S - Tropical, Lemon juice, funky barnyard, coriander

T - Tart lemon-lime, straw, granny smith apple

M - Effervescent, light bodied, dry finish, flattened with time

O - The best sour I have ever had. Tart and clean.

*I wish I had made more notes, but that is all I have. I will seek this one out in the future*
