look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: 750 ml corked and caged, maroon label with a large knife on it. Barrel aged 6 months, 10 % ABV, batch 001X2.

Appearance: Pours dark red, with quite a bit of carbonation. Large head fades quickly to almost none.

Smell: Definitely sour, smells a bit like maraschino cherries (real ones, not the bright red sugar bombs). Dark fruit with just a hint of nuttiness.

Taste: It is always a bit of a challenge for me describing sour beers - but this has all the flavors I like to see. Definitely a bit puckering, plenty of sourness without being overpowering. Dark fruit flavors, mainly cherry.

Overall impression: Another great wild offering from Russian River. It is amazing that we can get these in Colorado now - the CO beer scene just keeps getting better!
