7.0%ABV / 1.064 O.G / 27 BUs
Thanks to troywhittaker for sharing one of these with me, a pleasant surprise. I love brown ales, I love Pinot Noir, but I am a newb to this sour hype...
I appreciatte the tartness without being over done. White head on a golden/amber body. Aromas of cherry and wood. Complex taste of wine, cherry and mild tarness. Balanced by malt base less sour than I expected. A unique sipper for sure.
I was not able to write detailed notes on this one, but I plan to next time I get the opportunity to sample this one again. I am not scared of the sour just yet.

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.

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
