I have now had 2 bottles of this, plus once on tap in the Russian River tap room. This review takes into account all 3 tastings.
Kind of a tangerine color split between a goblet and pint glass. Nice head, no lacing.
Hard to detect much other than the sourness on the nose.
Beer out of the bottle was very sour, but I believe this was due to serving temperature. We took it slow and really let the beer warm up and then the other flavors started to emerge aside from the sour microbes. Nice wood notes to accompany the sourness. A little bit of citrus zest, a hint of malt sweetness.
Mouthfeel was surprsingly crisp for a sour. Surprised as to the difference between a sour beer and a hop bomb treats the palate. Hops tend to linger and shred the palate, but the sour doesn't linger too long.
Overall this is a fuck of a beer. Easily one of the best offerings from Russian River. PLEASE be sure to drink this at the proper temperature. Minimum of 55F to let all the flavors emerge.

Ruby red over brownish hues with a tan head that goes quickly. Minimal lacing with big sediment at the bottom. Tart cherries, Pinot noir wine and oak notes in the nose. Big tart cherry flavor supported by wine like qualities cloaked in oaky notes in the background. Tartness is cut toward the end by the malt backbone, making it sour and funky but reeling it in before it gets too far out of line. Puckering and tart with vibrant carbonation and a bone dry finish. A sipper for sure and a fantastically different beer.
