Bottle to snifter
Vintage: Batch 2

From notes. I opened this bottle at bspringer's birthday celebration. An epic night for sure to celebrate his golden day of birth!

A: Bright sunshine. No head on medium pour - just a few bubbles.

S: Burnt hay, green apple, barnyard, funk, oak, lemon zest and hint of spice.

T: Beautiful balance of sour, tart, and sweet. Loads of funk up-front with a soft balance of citrus fruit and hay towards the back. Quite they dry finish, but simply perfect!

M: Light body with zero carbonation.

O: This beer is truly a work of art! So crisp, to-the-point, and just awesome. Definitely worth seeking out and making a point to try. I look forward to trying other batches at some point in the future and am stoked that Vinnie & Co. at Russian River are continuing to produce this beer.

Batch 4. So glad I'm finally getting to try this. Pours a slightly hazy, bright gold color with a medium white head that goes down quickly. Scent is funky with nice lemon aromas. There is also a bit of sweat aroma in the nose as well. Lovely wild yeast scents and citrus with just the right amount of funk. Taste is very oaky at first with intense lemon and sharp, bitter funk from the wild yeast. A bit of cheese as well. Nice blend of lemon, funk, and sour. Mouthfeel is very crisp and refreshing. Puckering. Drinkability is very high. Overall, this is the first time I've had this beer, and RR has yet to disappoint. I'm not regretting waiting in line for 3 hours for a few bottles of this.
