Our good friend Justin (a.k.a. JustinA1, formerly Unwiseman Crappler) brought this back from his trip to Santa Rosa. Thanks a ton buddy! Much appreciated!
Poured into a Cigar City snifter.
Appearance: Pours out caramel-colored and oily, producing very little head. A very thin, white halo retains for the entire session, and leaves just a touch of lacing. Body is crystal clear and reddish copper. Looks nice.
Smell: Juicy lemon, blackberry tarts, cherries, and, of course, brettanomyces. Sweet and sour aromas come together beautifully! No vinegar here. Mouthwatering!
Taste: Initially sugary, but rapidly switches to sour bret. Cherries are subtle, but there. Dry esters pick up midway through, and I also get just a touch of salt. Finishes like cherry lemonade. I love the sourness, and as Wiseman Zach said (after trying this - his first sour!), "This one really grows on ya." Huge sourness. I love it!
Mouthfeel: Delicately carbonated, dry, and tremendously sour. Lots of mouth-numbing and/or palate-wrecking. Pretty light in body though. Exactly how a wild ale should be.
Drinkability: Sadly, I only got about 4oz. of this. I would've gladly taken more. Thank you SO much Mr. Appler! This is the best sour I've had to date!

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.

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
