look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A 375 bottle courtesy of my buddy Steve on the West Coast (who is drinking Younger as this is being typed). Poured gently in to a Duvel glass, there isn't much heading here, though the color is nice. It is almost Dubbel-ish, coming out a murky rose color. Nose is full of tart fruit, strawberry, raspberry, sour funk, and a hint of dark chocolate. Mild sourness hits the palate at first, with an aftertaste of juicy stone fruit to round things out. Alcohol is nowhere ti be found on this one. Mouthfeel is medium, with the sourness always present, but never overbearing. The balance here is incredible, as is the case with pretty much all RR beers I have tasted. RR makes the wine of the beer world IMO, except more textured and delicious than most wines I have encountered. Russian River, please come to Massachusetts soon. Cheers

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

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!
