Poured into a snifter, many thanks to augustgarage for my first Russian River brews. Batch 005X1F.
A- Pours a cloudy yellow brown with a small, quickly dissipating head.
S- Great aromas here. A mediocre amount of brett funk, and lost of red wine and oak. There is a very small presence of vinegar that is welcoming.
T- The brett really shines through in the taste. The perfect amount of tart and no alcohol at all. Hints of oak and red wine again.
M- Perfectly dry and full. Medium carbonation.
D- This is easily the most drinkable sour I have tried. There is no appearent alcohol and such wonderful flavor.

American wild ale
APPEARANCE: Gorgeous colors in this beer. Deep ruby mahogany, with a burnt orange rim variation. Little to no head with very light lacing.
AROMA: Nice and sour fruit right away. The Cabernet barrel explodes with notes of oak, currants, black cherry jam some barnyard funk rounds it out.
TASTE: Very tart lots of green apples which I didn't get on the nose. Fades rather quickly into the currant and cherries. Definitely getting that Cabernet flavors and nice oakiness.
MOUTHFEEL: Oddly enough without having a head on the beer there is a lot of prickly carbonation. Medium bodied slight oily feel maybe due to the Cabernet barrels.
OVERALL: Great, easily approachable sour. Wine drinkers will really appreciate the complex flavor profiles. Thoroughly enjoyed this, I think sharing the bottle was the way to go. The high ABV is hidden well and makes it almost to easy to drink.
RATING: 4/5 Zombie Heads!
