4.63/5 rDev +1.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75
Appearance: A very nice amber color. Foam is a skin tone. Lacing was pretty nice looked like a big ring off foam then seperates into little sexy streams that go down the glass. It has one finger of foam that likes to hang, but knows when to leave.
Smell: Smell is nice. I get that very nice pinot noir smell with a little funk, as in 70's popular good funk. Sour cherries of course come through. That sourness just makes my mouth water though.
Taste: OH MY GOD! This was my first introduction into wild ale. What a start! I want to buy as much at my secret location as I can. What a wonderful elixir this drink is. First I get hit with this wonderful taste of tart but sweet ranier cherries with that juicy acidity of a peach and a little hint of a granny smith apples with the texture of a red delicious. Hmmm... I want a nice tart granny smith right now. Then it changes into this little leathery spicey, I felt a faint vanilla presence and a little bitterness like the white fleshy part of grapefruit, wonderful oaky pinot noir that then introduces and pairs well with the yeastiness and then you get a hint of the malt on the finish. That sour grape cherry pinot mixture turned that funky yeast into something fantastic. Try an onion dish with it and you will get a taste akin to dried snap peas. You can taste the alcohol if you look for it, but why look for it and just enjoy this fantastic flavor
Mouth feel: The mouthfeel is very sweet and juicy. The alcohol is almost non-present. The body is a medium light feel. With perky carbonation. Good feel overall.
Overall: What nice intro to wild ales. Definitely one of my top beers I have tasted so far. I will return! Glad I forked out the money for this masterpiece of a brewsky.

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
