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.

Bottle poured into Daredevil tulip glass. Bottle date 010714, consumed and reviewed on 7/19/14.
A: Pours a dark copper with a heavy red tint and a little less than a finger of head that reduces quickly and leaves no collar or lacing.
S: I get the funk and cherries up front, with the Pinot noir in the background complimenting very nicely. Smells crisp and refreshing.
T: The cherries take the lead role, with a strong presence of the wine barrel just behind. The sour comes into play more on the back end.
M: High level of carb, as expected. The sourness leaves a pleasant dry finish.
O: Excellent sour ale from Russian River. The flavor and aroma come together extremely well.
