Thanks to Schmoopsbeer for this long wanted drink.
Batch 006X1. Served at 55 Degrees into two wine bottles. Heavy duty 375ml. Feels heavier empty than it does full. Magic!
A: Pours deep straw, amber and brown. Off-white head literally lasts forever. One of the best looking beers I've ever seen. A spectacle in the glass.
S: Definitely the most barnyardy American brew I've ever had. Wet hay and mushroom are very much present. Fruit is apparent as well with grapes and cherries being a big ingredient. Also suggetions of plum and raisin. Slightly bready malt component. Very complex. The oak is fucking brilliant.
T: Lots of Oak, and barnyard funk. Lingering fruity finish. Prepare to taste this one for about 15 minutes after final swallow.
M: Extremely carbonated. Sipped on this for about 30 minutes or so and was super carbed until the final drop. however, these are fine champagne bubbles, and are soft on the palate. Sure does make you burp though... How uncouth for such a fine beer. Dry? yes... its Sahara desert dry. every cell in your mouth immediately puckers up on contact.
Overall: This is a Magnificent beer. Certainly up there with Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen. I wish I could get a hold of these regularly.
Just noticed I made it all the way though this review without saying "sour"... Its Sour folks!

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.
