4.38/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottled on 7/18/13. Poured into Bruery snifter.

Appearance is dark ruby, mahogany, clear but hard to see through. No head.

Smell is dark fruits, mild red wine, sweet fruit snacks, red berries.

Taste is dark fruit, currants, red wine tannins, tart, some oak character.

Mouth feel is medium light, dry finish like a wine. Prefect amount of light carbonation.

Overall this is another fantastic sour from Russian River. The flavor profile keeps changing with each sip. Will seek out again
