This is one of the loveliest beers I have seen in the glass. It looks like champagne. The nose is subtle and slightly funky -- not the strongest part of the beer. Beatification has a deep lemon juiciness that is incredible. It is followed by a well-balanced pucker that doesn't have you reaching for the Tums. The finish is nice and astringent, which is the perfect lead in to the the next sip. Up there with Supplication as the best from Russian River.
