Russian River Consecration: wild ale aged in cab barrels with currants added, aged 4 to 8 months, 10% ABV, popped with a smoky haze, soda-like carbonation, head fades instantly to nothing; Appearance: deep reddish brown with dark sediment, constantly rising bubbles; Smell: grape must sourness upon opening bottle, lots of sourness, dark grapes, tart cherry, tartaric acid, currant, hint of lime, faint woody note; Taste/Mouthfeel: very complex, starts out with a sharp acid and Acerola cherry (short, yet strong), followed by a big fruity Cabernet dryness with pronounced leather as it passes the front of the tongue, finish for this overaps next flavor set, finally banana peel and more bright acid, which finishes slowly, long and low; really good.
Poured into a pint glass.
