look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
A: Pours a very clear, very bright golden color with about a one and a half finger soapy white head. Lots of carbonation visible
S: Lots of lemon, lots of vinegar kind of smells, a very good amount of an herbal funkiness.
T: Taste follows the nose fairly well, lots of tartness mostly, the funk was a little lost here. It was still there, but not as much as the nose led me to believe. I'll have to see if that changes through aging though, which may be the case. Very sour with lots of lemon and vinegar though.
M: A bit thicker than I expected, but not a "thick beer" by any means. Extremely dry and it feels like the acid just ripped all the enamel off my teeth.
Overall this was pure awesomeness. My favorite sour from RR and one of my favorite beers overall. I can't to see what some more age does to these beasts.

Poured from a 375ml bottle into a tulip glass. Batch #6
A- Pours a deep chardonnay golden yellow color. Has a very high wine like clarity. Small fizzy head that dissipated quickly.
S- Lots of sour apple, some vinegar, some light vanilla, good amount of oak. some white wine character in there.
T- Similar to aroma but amplified to an insane degree. Lots of tart lemon, sour apple, and vinegar. Finishes with a dry yeasty note. Has that old barn cellar thing that sours usually have.
M- Medium-light the flavor makes this a sipper.
O- This is one of the most sour beers I've had and if you're looking for something that delivers in the pucker department seek this one out. It is also somewhat too sour for me in my tastes. It's missing a bit of the subtlety that I got from Supplication. Still an amazing beer and if you want to test the limits of sour seek it out.
