Poured from a 375 ml bottle into a tulip glass

A- a bright almost neon yellow with a thin head that never goes away.

S- lots of peaches and pinneapple. Smells extremely sour. Lots of spices as well. Hard to pick out though.

T- everything blends so well. The peaches and pinneapple and other tropical fruits come through very well. The sourness makes your cheeks pucker immediately and the acidity of the beer feels like its eating my teeth. There is a smoothness on the back end that really brings it together.

M- a full beer that puckers your cheeks and leaves a strong sourness in your mouth.

O- a very good sour. I find picking out flavors in sours are difficult but the taste and smell and everything about it are outstanding.

Single finger fizzy white head on a slightly hazy pale golden body. Aroma of Chardonnay, white grapes, lemon zest, funk, tropical fruit and nicely forbodes the level of tartness the taste has in store. The first sip has the salivary glands contracting and it's so tart initially it is almost bad but it's just enough to be perfect. As you get used to it the flavors pop with lemon, white wine, fruits, Chardonnay and Granny Smith sour apples. Oak is light. It's only knock for me is it lacks a little complexity likely because it is so tart the other flavors are lost. Crisp, light body with the sourness drying you out quite a bit. Another great sour from RR. Lives up to the hype and beyond.
