Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Utopias sample glass. Acquired in a trade from hwy395.. thank you sir!

A- Pours a slighthly hazy, super carbonated, pineapple coloorred body with a fizzy white 2 finger head that reduces to a white ring. Leaves no lacing.

S- The first thing I notice upon popping the cork is a strong champagne-like aroma, grapes and white wine. After pouring it and letting it sit, strong lactic tartness, leather, lemon juice, citrus zest, and a distinct earthiness.

T- BOOM! The mouth puckering sourness that kept me seeking this beer out hits you the second it touches your tongue. Straight lemon juice, vinegar, sour apple hit you in face, followed by a earthy, leathery notes complimented by oak and subtle Belgian spice.

M- Crisp, refreshing, highly carbonated. Dry finish.

I've been waiting to try this beer for almost 2 years now. What differentiates it from other Wild Ales I've tried is the mouth puckering sourness that it delivers. As with other RR sours, it was very well balanced and complex. This one's a winner.
