A- pours a dark reddish shade of brown with a half finger head that fades nearly instantly. Some of the head sticks around on the top of the glass and around the edges...it just LOOKS evil, like some sort of witches brew...god its awesome, constantly bubbling.
S- strong cherries with a bit of a tartness to them. Getting some of an aroma of a wine type flavor as well. Great.
T- Awesome sour, tart, killer cherries. Its only mildly puckering...but I don't care. It kicks ass. The oak flavor seeps through a little bit too. Perfection.
M- well carbonated, great body. Balance is fantastic with the tartness.
D- the sourness could be a little too much for some...but not me. I love this. It packs a punch though, but you can't really taste the booze at all. First class sour from RR.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottled on 7/18/13. Poured into Hill Farmstead tulip.
Appearance- is dark ruby to mahogany hue. Minimal head. Good lacing.
Smell- dark fruits, red wine, ripe berries and oak.
Taste- dark fruit, currants, red wine tannins, some tartness, some oak character.
Mouth feel is medium to light, dry finish like a wine. Moderate carbonation and excellent balance.
Overall spectacular wild ale; favorite to date. Russian River always has a flavor profile that is complex!
Serving type: bottle
