375ml, 9/11/13
Russian River tulip

A: Pours out very pale yellow color. You can almost see right through it. Thin layer and collar of bright white head. Lots of carbonation streaming from the middle of the bell of the glass.

S: Funk. Brett. Oak. Lemon. Dry. Horse blanket.

T: Up front you get that burst of sour funk. It attacks the tip of the tongue. Middle of the mouth it's more creamy than I was expecting. Getting some of the oak tannic character. Really like a Chardonnay mixed with the carbonation like a champagne. Finish is very dry and leaves you wanting another sip much like other sours.

M: Light bodied. Not as prickly on the tongue as I was expecting.

Batch #6 (I think) bottle from trade, dated 9/11/13. Pours to my tulip a light yellow golden color with a small fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Aroma is nice tart lemon, yeast funk, some pleasant citrus-like sweetness, light vinegar (very light on that note), apricots, lots of lacto acidity. Flavor is a nicely balanced sweet and sour lemon, lots of lactic tartness, dry oak, dry dusty Geuze-like qualities yet a nice sweet citrus character to balance. Some wine like qualities with Sauvignon blanc type of acidity. Light bodied with high carbonation and a crisp finish. This is really nice, but I can’t ever see paying $18 for a small bottle myself. Differentiating sour beers is tough I guess. With that said no doubt I would drink this again. Yum.
