Pours a hazy gold with 1 finger of bubbly white head into a tulip glass. Head doesn't last very long, and leaves little lacing behind. Smells of Brett, green apples, lemon zest, cantaloupe, and vinegar. Taste starts out good and tart with plenty of green apples, lemon, and vinegar. Brett funk makes itself known as does notes of vanilla, but it never gets the sourness of some of the other RR Wild Ales, remaining tart and funky. Light in body with good fizzy champagne-like carbonation and lots of tartness and funk. Another extraordinary -ication from Russian River that is light, lower in alcohol, and packed with unique flavors.

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.
