Batch 5. Thanks to exitmusic00 for cracking this open prior to our bcbs vertical tasting.
A- Pours a bright gold with a thin white head that leaves minimal lacing.
S- Plenty of lemon juice and peel as well as peach upfront, followed by lacto, horse blanket and vinegar.
T- Damn this is sour, just tons of lemon juice, lemon peel, lacto, horse blanket, vinegar and a hint of peach.
M- Fairly high carbonation and a light body with a long dry finish with the sourness lingering on.
O- This is quite sour, but that's pretty much it. Nothing too complex and am confused why this is considered a top wild from RR. Have had a few others from them and this just seems to lack any depth their other offerings had. Glad I got to finally try it, but wouldn't really seek it out.

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.
