4.53/5 rDev -0.9%
375mL bottle batch # 005x3 consumed 12/19/12
Appearance: Deep bourbon-y brown with a nice tan head
Nose: Cherry candies, tart cranberry juice, sweet caramel, and toasty oak. Really nice combination of aromas.
Taste: Cherry forward, with the caramel and oak underneath. Some of the tart cranberry and strawberry from the Pinot Noir barrels are evident. Complex and a nice balance of tart and sweet.
Mouthfeel: Medium with a hint of tannic dryness.
Overall: The cherries get to be a bit much when it warms up but sipping it slowly reveals a complex combination of tasty flavors and aromas.

Not following regular format here:
FUNK, Pinot, dry grassiness, puckingly sour but not overly so. Acidic. I've had Beatification and I'm not sure it's better, just different. They are equally as good. One is just rarer than the other.
I've had a decent amount of Belgian examples of the style and this trumphs most but weird as it may be, I prefer this to most Krieks. Also, let it be known I've never had a Cantillon Beer so please take this fact into account...
Everything I look for in a sour with cherries added is right freaking here.
Dry, and semi grassy finish allows for this one to be more drinkabe than any other representation of the style I've had but that doesn't neccessarily mean best.
Near perfect beer. Well Done RRBC.

Review from notes.
A: Poured into a wine glass. Beaten copper color with minimal head and minimal lacing. First appearance is hazy, but that is actually extremely fine carbonation rising to the surface. Tiniest little bubbles ever.
S: Cherries, sour mash, lactobacillus funk, candied red fruit, barnyard, straw.
T: Barnyard funk, musty beginning, acidic, wine like, tart bright cherry candy finish (think cherry Jolly Rancher). Flavor sticks with you.
M: Big acidity. Absolutely massive flavor for being light to medium bodied. Carbonation works wonders to bring everything together.
O: The mountain top of sours. Extremely high quality, very flavorful without being a "big" beer. One of the paragons of the style.

Big thanks to Mista for opening this bottle. Batch 10.
A- Pours a translucent ruby red with a thin white cap that leaves no lacing behind.
S- Pungent aroma with tart cherries, red grapes, raspberries, vinegar, vanilla and oak.
T- The taste is toned down a bit with vinegar, freshly pressed cherries, vanilla, red grapes, lemon, brett, juice and some sweet tarts.
M- Medium carbonation with a crisp dry finish.
O- A really well done sour that has a nice balance of tartness, fruitiness and funkiness that isn't too mouth puckering. Would love to have a couple more bottles of this and see how it develops.
