Wow, big thanks goes out to jamduggan for this treat.
375 mL cork/caged bottle poured into a tulip. Batch 002.
Pours a very unique, thick, murky, amber-brownish hue with a thin one finger light khaki colored head that seems to die down to a thin layer that stays for a good while. Stickiness isn't there at all. Smell is sour cherries, nuts, red wine, and a hint of vanilla. Taste is sour/acidic (but enjoyable) cherries, sounds pathetic but reminds me of a sour patch kid. Sweet and sour go back and forth fight each other on the tongue and in the end the sour seems to win the battle. Do I need to mention the Brett's? Well, I did...even though with any RR Wild Ale it's already a given. Beginning; sour. Middle; red wine. End; green apple. Such a complex brew, I'm sure I missed a crapload of flavors but these are the ones that stuck out to me. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a whole lotta carbonation. Crisp and bitter. Drinkability is pretty damn good. I took my time with it not because it was difficult to put down, but just because I wanted to get every flavor out of it I could. I look forward to the bottle of Sanctification I brought back from the brewery this summer. Russian River raises the bar with Supplication. Definitely enjoyed this one more than Temptation.

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.
