I got this one a few months ago from JHenry04 and I've been holding on to it for awhile. I found a good opportunity to share this with a few other BAs and went for it.
A soft hazy body that isn't quite what I would call rust, but it isn't really orange or brown either. A small off-white head that leaves just a bit of spotty lacing on there.
Smell is fantastic. After the first sniff I said "whoa." The sour, tart notes are there, reminding me of both sour apple and sour cherry. Oak is in the background along with some lighter fruits like apricot notes. A little sweetness from brown malts. Big, complex, and very appealing, Supplication seems to be yet another winner from Russian River.
The flavor doesn't disappoint in either complexity or enjoyability. The sour notes come through once again with tart cherry and apple. There are also touches of both vinegar and slightly funky cheese type flavors. There is some good spicy oak characterisitcs that I could swear come with a touch of white wine, but that one could just be my imagination. Some light fruits come out again and the perfect balance of sweet malt is present also.
Mouthfeel is middle of the road in thickness with higher than moderate carbonation. It is pretty highly carbonated actually, but it works here.
This is one hell of a drinkable beer, but you will definitely be sipping Supplication to savor and enjoy it.

Poured into a tulip glass from the tap at Russian River Brewery.
Very little head, leaving behind small lace ring.
Nose is sour with a touch of sweet, there are cherries and blackberries with notes of oak.
Tastes of cherries, sour blackberries, oak, and wildflowers.
Light yet sharp mouthfeel, lots of acidity.
This beer boarders on perfection. Enjoy it.

4.76/5 rDev +4.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
375ml bottle dated 1/7/14 poured into a tulip
A: Medium brown with a slight reddish tint; its head starts out at one-finger, settles to 1/2 finger then lingers at that level
S: Intoxicating with sour cherries, a hint of vinegar, subtle wine/oak notes, and a mix of fresh herbs
T: Can't get better. Sour cherries, cranberries, some barnyard frunk, grass, subtle oak and a very long finish
M: Surprisingly light with pleasant carbonation; quite acidic
O: I don't think I've ever taken smaller sips of a beer trying to savor every last bit. This is fantastic in its complexity and also very refreshing. Wonderful beer
