4.73/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

375ml bottle into a tulip. 9/11/13 bottling date.

pours a murky pale yellow with a half inch white head that quickly dissipates. the smell is massively acidic and is just perfect. the taste starts out very sour and tart but then balances out so well with the funkiness and finishes so dry and awesome. an amazing sour beer...just about perfect in every way. carbonation and mouth feel are on point.

had a batch 3 just last week and it turned much sourer than this fresh batch. both versions extremely good. love it

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

A: Pours a slightly hazed golden color with a slight, fizzy eggshell colored head. The head dissipates almost immediately, but looking down into the glass, there's a steady stream of bubbles rising up from the bottom like a geyser.

S: A fantastic blast of citrus, lemon and funk right off the bat. Lemon zest, a touch of tropical fruit, maybe pineapple, dried apricot, vanilla and some spice mixed with earthy notes and good old horse blanket. Smells awesome.

T: Hits with a big tart, slightly acetic lemony twang that carries through all the way to mid-palate. Some underripe red cherry and lemon candy hit in the middle. Barnyard, wet hay, a touch of leather, vanilla and some oak. Sticks the finish. Intensely tart and lemony with a great lingering dryness. Like every RR sour I've had, the mouthfeel is impeccable. This is world class.
