Overall, this is the standard grape/wine brown sour that I gauge all others of similar type. This one's nearly flawless. So glad my taste developed the appreciation/love for this.
Love wine-influenced beers, especially sours. This one's perfect for the holidays.

Definitely get the sour currants, the grapes from the Cab, the earthy wood element from the barrel. Med bodied with great carbonation. Some heat that's warming and inviting. Most expensive of the 4 RR sours I've tried, but definitely gonna get another bottle.

- Batch unknown
- 1oz. tasting pour off tap @ Hollingshead Deli on 7-Jul-10
This was my first sour experience and it tasted like liquid Warheads. Couldn't appreciate it.
