Real nice balanced wild ale. A tad sour with real strong wine notes... Cherry, Grape, Oak, Green Apple, Cigar, Berries, Soda, Vinegar (think wine) a touch of Vanilla and Raisins. Nothing like I have ever had. I will say I thought 'Temptation' was a bit more satisfying for me. The more I sip, the more my palette really begins to crave it. Amazing carbonation. Overall, I would love to have this or any Russian River readily available~
