Batch 5.

Beautiful clear golden pour with minimal carbonation. Metallic nose, huge lemon juice quality on the palate. This is straight-up citrus, not vinegar. Finishes clean with a big-time mineral quality.

Interesting beer, not complex but an impressive showcase of the flavors it does have. I imagine it being served ice cold accompanying some delicious fresh seafood. Out of that context maybe it's more of a curiosity.

001, PH1. Light orange color with ample foam. Smells of bugs and critters, cobweb, damp barn, horse blanket, lemon and soaked wood. Flavor is strongly sour, super intense and woody, funky, wild and loaded with lemon and other fruits notes. Obviously a terrific and expertly crafted beer, but not one I'd like to collect. Supplication will always be my favorite Russian River brew.

B3, thanks to Arbitrator, shared with the MA BA crew in a big sour tasting. Poured into VE tasting glass. Mr. Arbitrator had the courtesy to wax a cork and cage, so 15 minutes after stabbing it with a knife I was able to pour it for the crew.

A- Strong, dynamic yellow, like lemon gatorade. Well, not that intense, but close. Low carbonation settles to a faint outer ring.

S- Earthy, musty, funky. Sour.

T- Strong bitter/sour lemon rind, building to a heavy tartness that is borderline mouth-puckering. Faint wet grass, some mild strawberry sweetness in the finish. Really unique.

M- Very tart- crisp apple and lemon gumdrops.

O- Glad I had some people to share this with. I like it, but it's intense.
