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!
