If you like Cabernet Sauvignon this beer is for you! Looks awesome period! mouth watering. The aroma is an amazing wine, sour mix. The taste is the best BA wine brew I have ever had. I truly feel this beer is incredible. It's like an awesome beer and wine were mixed perfectly. A top notch, World Class beer that the brewmasters at RR should be proud of. I would buy this again in a second. Just wow! awesome beer!

Bottom Line: Amazing beer period! the only bad part is I am an IPA fiend!

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
