The Russian River "ation" series of sour ales is really good. They have yet to let me down and this one is no different.
The beer is a cloudy brownish yellow with bits of dead yeast slowly floating to the base of the glass. It pours with a medium head that is a lovely yellowish white and sticks around till the glass is finished.
The nose entices the senses with cider, apple, oak, and a little apricot. There are some faint notes of almost a chemical smell as well as some heat and for that it got marked a down a little on the smell.
The ale has an orchard fruit profile with notes of apple, pear, and a bit of cherry on the tip of the tongue. The beer starts sweet and then bites you at the end with its lovely sour characteristic.
The body is thin but balanced by a good amount of carbonation which adds to the sour nature of the beer.
Overall this is an exceptional sour beer and I tend to choose it when I'm in the mood for something out of my ordinary. I definitely recommend this beer to any sour lover and its also a great beer for those who aren't the typical beer drinkers.

Bottle poured into a rocks glass.
Great look upon first pour - a dark amber/red. I am a newbie when it comes to wild ales aged with sour cherries in pinot noir bottles. However, this is the second time I have drank this beer and it is pretty damn good. Especially becuase I prefer IPA's and Stouts. Aroma is sour pinot noir, funk and cherries. Taste is might good with some sour, pinot, yeast, cherries and a hint of vanilla. Quite delicious and well balanced.
