375ml bottle poured into a lovely snifter. Batch 3, big thanks to Bmoyer0301 for the hook up. Supplication pours a great color copper to red with orange around the edges. Nice white head with tight carbonation. Crazy fine spotted lacing all over the glass. Aroma is of musty basement and damp earthy oak first and then more of a barrel oak aroma followed by the presence of cherries. This beer has a great malty profile which is accented by masterful barrel aging. The flavor from the oak aging frames the cherry flavor very well, not in the way a kriek tastes but in the unique american style. As this beer breaths it becomes a bit more sour and leaves your palate cleanly and dryly. Supplication has great mouthfeel, perfect bottle conditioning. This beer is all about balance. The RR guys are amazing, everything you would want to taste, cherry, oak, wild yeast etc. is there and not one aspect overwhelms the others. Well Done!
