4.25/5 rDev -5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
On tap at Good Dog Bar in Philly on 7/6/12. Served in a wide mouth tulip.
Pour: Reddish copper with no head at all. Decent carbonation.
Smell: Funky cherries all the way. Some must, but really the cherries dominate.
Taste: Tart cherries and hay must. Cabernet oakiness provides a woody aspect.
Mouthfeel: Slick and oily, much like a cabernet. Not overly sour, but tart for sure.
Overall: Good, but probably my least favorite of the RR sours I have so far (sanctification > supplication > consecration)
Serving type: on-tap

4.5/5 rDev +0.4%

A: Pours a dark amber, purplish ruby red color; reminiscent of a wine. Nice one finger slightly off-white head, which retains for several seconds or so.
S: Aromas are revealing a vinous, cabernet, wine ratio which is nicely supplemented by funky notes of figs, oak, cherry, plums, brown sugar, lemon, dark fruits and of course accompanied by sourness. The notes/intricacies on this guy are fantastic
T: Sour, tart, and funk are quite prevailing and pleasing. In keeping with the smell, the taste is that of a vinous, wine feel. Notes are that of grapes, raisins, lemon, cherry, slight vinegar, and a woody oak earthiness feel; very similar to the smell
M: Medium to Full body, medium carbonation, lots of sour funk, the presence of wine, and just an overall complex beer
O: Complex and incredible; being extremely well balanced and very smooth make this out to be a superbly refreshing beverage
Serving type: bottle
