look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Acquired in a trade with WestCoastBrew2 - thanks a ton. 375ml bottle, shared with a friend, 09/14/12 bottling date, poured into a 10 oz snifter glass.
Appearance: red-brown color, opaque. lackluster 1/2 finger light tan head dissipates quickly. No lacing.
Smell: Compared to supplication, a less fruit-forward smell. Still nice presence of sour grapes and apples, a hint of red wine.
Taste: Awesome tart taste, sour grapes, granny smith apples, dry cab sauv really comes through and adds to the dryness. 10% ABV very well-hidden.
Mouthfeel: Extremely smooth and drinkable. Smooth, very nice dry finish, not cloyingly sticky.
Overall: A very different beer than supplication, which speaks to the creativeness of Russian River, in my mind. This beer highlights the balance and smooth texture of the ideal AWA and is well-complemented by cab sauv barrel aging. Equally as good, in my opinion. World-class. Enjoy whenever available.
