Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Toronado 25th Anniversary Ale started out as six individual brews, each with their own personality, and all incorporating Brettanomyces and or micro-organisms. Once the barrel aging was complete, Russian River’s Vinnie Cilurzo and Toronado’s David Keene got together to create the final blend. To create its fine carbonation, we re fermented the Toronado 25th Anniversary Ale in this bottle. Spent yeast cells from a thin layer of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Pour slowly, allowing the natural yeast sediment to remain in the bottle.

Blend:
4% Sonambic (barrel aged for 15 months)
16% Blonde Ale (barrel aged for 8 months)
36% Strong Pale Ale (barrel aged 12 months)
28% Ale Aged with Currants (barrel aged for 8 months)
12% Strong Dark Ale (barrel aged for 12 months)
4% Baltic Porter (barrel aged for 10 months)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - pours a rustic orange without much of a head on it

S - nose consists of vinous oak bubblegum. Not exactly what I was expecting, but it smells good.

T - starts off super sour and locks up the jaw (can't say many sours I have tried have actually done this to me). Some noir wine flavors mixed in with sour lemon citrus flavors are up next. Ends with funk, straw, sour notes, and a little fruity. Very nice!

M - full and well carbonated

D - nice American wild ale here. Beautiful blend of a beer here...the most sour American wild I have tried to date...

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours an almost-clear, reddish-amber color with a large off-white head that goes down quickly. Scent is very oaky with just the right amount of funk for this particular beer. Some cherry and currant in the nose, along with red berry aromas. Vinous with more oak and tartness. Taste is very enjoyable. At first, the berries come through very aggressively, then I get a mellow oak flavor that has a hint of sweet vanilla to it. The berry flavor turns to bitter currants. A bit of red-wine vinegar with a pleasant oaky finish. Very sour, and quite complex IMO...but that's too be expected from a beer that is made up of 6 barrel aged beers. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, crisp, and puckering. Drinkability is high, as I can't believe this beer is almost 9%. Overall, this is a fantastic beer. I had this on tap at the release, and I wasn't as impressed as I am by the bottled version.

Thanks to SubpoenaDeuces for the bottle!

Pours deep copper with a small white head leaving decent retention and lacing down the glass.

Lots going on in the aroma. Lots of cherry and oak. I can definitely smell the Consecration influence coming through on this. Some other generic berry along with tartness as well.

Again Consecration comes through in the taste. Lots of dark fruit up front with some vinous quality. Drying towards the middle as the oak comes out, but finishes slightly sweet. Good level of tartness, but not really digging the finish.

Medium bodied. Good carbonation.

A nice beer, but nowhere near the level of hype. Many of us agreed we'd rather just have a Supplication over this. Still glad I got the opporitunity to try it and wish I had another bottle as it does seem to have some good aging potential.

750ml bottle into a snifter.

A: Pours a light caramel color with a nice white head.

S: Brett is doing good work in the nose. Pineapple, lightly gamey, old hay, mildly sweet maltiness and a good dose of dry sourness underneath.

T: The taste follows the nose with notes of tart grapefruit and pineapple, drying oak, subtle pale malt sweetness. It's not very sour, but the acidity is diverse. I can taste lactic acid along with a small amount of acetic acid, very much in balance.

M: Between light and medium-bodied with light and creamy carbonation. Very drinkable.

O: This is a brett beer, front and foremost, and works wonderfully in that regard. I'm missing the currants and the complexity of a 6-beer blend, but it's tasty enough to make up for that.

pours a slightly ruby brown, fizzy head, crisp and bubbly. great retention and lacing, which tossed my rating to a 4.5.

bright fruit, currant and sour cherry. a hint of oak and lemon.

similar to nose, lots of bright sour fruit. mainly cherry and currant. a sour candy aspect going on. through out there is that signature RR sour and yeast. malt body seems to stick out a bit. light oak.

nice light body with a near perfect bite. carbonation is spot on. slight dryness in the finish. a little more dryness and i'd nail this a 5.0. lip puckering sour, curls the lips and tongue.

a fine beer, missed out on T20 so when this dropped, I laid down trades and would do so again. great beer.

Thanks Mike!

Ruby red grapefruit hues in the body scare off the white head. Freshly blended fruit aroma gets a shot in the arm from tart brett and Belgian yeast. Smells really nice.

As others have mentioned, this tastes like Consecration & Supplication spent a messy night together. The best qualities of each shine through with a freshly fruity tang. Should age nicely in the near term, but honestly this is drinking great right now.

**REVIEW NUMBER 400**

Big thanks to Reja for sending this bottle! Reviewed from notes. Poured from corked and caged 750 mL bottle into a Peg's snifter glass.

A: Almost completely clear dark amber - reminds me of a really dark apple cider in appearance. About a finger's worth of white head - big bubbles. A moderate amount of visible carbonation crawling up the sides.

S: Funky barnyard and mouth-puckering tartness. Dark fruit, some apples and grapes...and oak tannins galore.

T: This is complex, and I'm not real sure how to approach it. Sour and tart (starts with an acetic acid sharp burn, then more lactic and lemony sour spread throughout the mouth) up front. Big tartness in the middle of the drink on the center of my tongue. Oak tannin dryness as well throughout, but I don't get big vanilla flavors from it. Lots of Brett funkiness throughout, although maybe less than I expected. Belgian fruity esters are here too, but they're everywhere and I can't quite nail down a certain fruit profile. Almost makes me think of eating too much fresh pineapple with the amount of burn down in the belly. Maybe some sour cherry as well? Finish is oak, sour and fruity, and I'm left with the description of "sour banana", though I realize that doesn't make a lot of sense.

M: Medium body, and a mouthfeel that's incredibly tingly (lots of carbonation plus the sour tingle). Alcohol is noticeable but melds nicely into the rest of the beer.

O: This was really, truly outstanding the the most literal sense. They got the blend right, and I spent the entire snifter worth really trying to work through the levels of complexity. It is seriously sour though, and it toes the line of almost too much - not for someone starting into sours. Very very enjoyable, and I wish I had a couple more bottles to see how it would change.

Bottle generously shared at the Peg's tasting on 3/8/13.

A- Pours a caramel/maroonish color, thin off-white head.

S- Tart aroma of dark fruits, cherry and red wine, some oak.

T- Similar to the aroma, tart flavor, nice lactic acidity with lots of fruit and vinous flavors. Has a nice musty funkiness to it with wet oak.

M- Medium-bodied, nice carbonation with a dry finish.

O- A damn nice beer, probably one of the better sours I've had from Russian River, really tasty stuff.

750ml bottle poured into HF stemmed glass and split 3 ways. Served lightly chilled. Thanks to standardcherry for this one.

A- Pours a fairly dark purplish red that is mostly opaque and has just over a 1-finger fizzy white head that recedes fairly fast to leave just a thin white layer and some clingy lacing. Decent carbonation.

S- Vinous muscat grapes, merlot, currants, dried plums, hints of vanilla and oak and a very faint chocolate from the porter. Nice vinegar/brett sourness. Nicely balanced, complex, and fairly aromatic. The currants definitely stand out and provide a fairly reminiscient aroma of Consecration that's a little bit more sour.

T- Vinous muscat grapes, currants, a little bit of merlot wine similar to other RRs, finishes fairly sour with a little bit of vinegar, nice lingering sour aftertaste of currants.

M- Medium bodied, fairly carbonated but dies down, very easy drinking, hard to distinguish abv.

O- This was another great sour from Russian River. It definitely had a nice flavor of currants and wine characteristics trademark of RR that balanced well with the level of sourness in the beer. The currants definitely reminded me of Consecration except T25 was more sour and complex. Overall a great use of blending and barrel-aging provided a nice tasting and fairly complex sour. I definitely recommend this beer although it is fairly sour and probably isn't for everyone.

Thanks Frank for sending this! Shared with a few BAs.

As instructed, drank at ~60 degrees.

Clear, dark amber-brown with plenty of effervescence. Smells pretty gueuze like but with its own personality --- Fruit jam and acid. Tastes sour, oaky, tannic, rind-y and lactic. Effervescent but not harsh on the palate with a pretty light feel. I had no idea that this was 8+ % ABV. Very nice.

On tap poured into a goblet glass. Beer pours a dark brown/maroon color, with some darker reds at the edges with a half a finger of soft soapy off white head. Light lacing as I drank from the glass, with a few bubbles clinging to the edge of the glass.

Nose is fairly mild, and being described as a lighter Consecration is fitting. There is a light red berry and currant combined with fruit vinegar acetic acid tang. Some sweeter light brown sugar and dark caramel as the beer warms.

Taking a sip, an initial small acidic bite, then mild red berry and currants sweetness. A bit of barrel comes through mid tongue, light oak tannins, woody and almost orangey, along with sweeter brown sugar. Finishes dry with some light currant sweetness and lingering red wine vinegar.

Medium body with decent carbonation, enough to engage the tongue without being overly present. Pretty easy to drink, but the flavors weren't as bold as I thought it would be given the darker ale components and barrel aging. Had a bit of the current batch of Consecration side by side with this and the flavors from that were a bit more prominent, though this beer has some nice nuances and isn't as fatiguing on the tongue.

Last Bottle at Monks Cafe, still shooting myself for paying the amount of money i did to try it, but what the hell.

A- The appearance is very nice, one finger egg shell white head, beautiful lacing sticks to the glass, dark brown/ burnt orange color.
S- Very nice aroma, sour/funk upfront, dark fruits are present, plums, raisins, sour lemon.
T- This is delicious, sour funkiness, puckering, lemon notes, dark fruits, plum, currants show as well, oak comes out, reminds me of Consecration in a way, the abv is very hidden, would not know i just drank a 750 ml bottle of an 8% beer on my own.
M- Medium/ big mouthfeel, clean on the palate, dry finish, well carbonated
O- This beer is very satisfying, is it worth the amount of money i paid for it, i would have to say no, but i don't regret paying for it, it was enjoyable and a nice big beer to celebrate returning to America.

Opened at TN whales tasting 3/16/2013. Thanks to CurtisMcArthur for sharing.

Pours a reddish amber color, decent head. Not a standout appearance but looks nice.

Smells pretty tart, bit of ketchup, some brett, maybe some cardboard.

Taste is nice and sour, some ambiguous vinous fruit, but I get a bit of woody cardboard--could this be a little oxidized already or is it just confused from the blend? Tastes good, great sourness, but the flavor is unfocused and hard to describe in detail.

Nice fizzy mouthfeel, pretty drinkable despite the acidity.

On tap at Russian River.

Bright, copper body. Scant brown tinged head. Good retention and nice lacing.

Acetic smelling, with vinegar aromas and some lemon sourness. Oak and grass. Green apples.

Big tartness, green apple at first, then tending towards a lemon tartness. Some cut grass in the back ground. Berry fruit flavors, with a hint of caramel. Dry, with lively carbonation.

A very nice sour. Not the best example from Russian River, but a very good one. I really like the bold tartness. Love to see how this ages.

A - A nice half finger of off white and yellow head. Body is clear and a gorgeous brown and amber color. Some light lacing.

S - Very well balanced between tart, sweet, and funk. Raspberry, green raspberry, brett, and great red wine. Excellent.

T - Tons of green tartness of unripe fruits and earthiness. Slight white wine, green raspberry. As it warms, more brett comes out and the taste becomes more funky. Still well balanced. More red wine as well with warmth.

M - The greenness of the beer makes the acidity really stick to your tongue. Lighter carbonation and medium body. Slight drying.

O - Like eating a green raspberry. Super tart yet still very pleasant. The smoothness and how it all comes together is amazing. It is unlike anything I've had and I can't believe 6 beers came together like this.

On tap at the Toronado anniversary party. Pours a dark amber with a small white head that has decent retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The aroma is quite fruity with raisin, grape, quite a bit of oak, a hint of apple, and some mustiness. The initial taste has a light sweetness with raisin and a bunch of oak and a decent tartness. There is also some grape and mustiness. The finish is dry and funky. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Quite enjoyable. It certainly reminded me a bit of Consecration. I would say this is on par with the regular Russian River lineup. Not better. Not worse.

Light ruby with a hint of orange, creamy white head. Oaked and light tart cherries and currants. Notes of leather.

Tart red grapes with lemons and the combined acidity. Mild sweetness and malt in the middle. Finishes with dark fruit and lemons, malt and light oak. Belgian Pale seems to carry the the rest of the flavors well.

Overall is very good. There is a noticeable Consecration-like note that seems to be the most dominating flavor of the blend. The Beatification base shows as well in the acidity, although it is such a small component of the blend.

Served into a Diasy Cutter glass

A: This pours a turbid brown akin to consecration but with less sheeting and legs, nice carbonation and wispy foam, very pretty.

S: There's notes of currants, funk, cherries, black cherries, and light lactic notes.

T: Wow, light consecration meets supplication is a perfect rendition of this balanced beast. This needs no time and is a juicy beast from the outset. The funk is a nice vertebrae to the affair and the dryness from the oak rounds out the finish.

M: This is dry but the fruit aspects counterbalances it well

D: This is too tart for lengthy drinking sessions but the taste is so good that you will. I can drink this more than beatification and i feel that as it warms, it offers even more complexity. highly recommended.

Thank you homeboys for picking me up some of this.

A - pours a bright brown, clear. At least it did before I decided to pour the sediment in my beer, on purpose. Rating the appearance before the sediment. It looked great for te style, only missing some slight head that I wanted when compared to some great Cantillons.

S - smells like good. Sweet currants, some nice almost apple aromas. Slight hint of lemon, and some yeasty notes. Just wonderful and complex, very different as it warms, the sour notes hit a little more. Damn!

T - oh boy, this beer is really good. A really sting acetic sourness just hits you. As the sourness drops, some sweet fruits follow suit. Some Unripen lemons mixed with dark berries come to mind. Some slight woodiness finishes, with no traces of alcohol. Wonderful.

M - perfectly carbonated per style. It starts off foamy, allowing the flavors to burst in your mout, just an explosion of flavor. The beer finishes sticky and slightly sweet. Man!

O - honestly better than I thought it would be. I really loved T20, and it's nice to get to try a beer like it (blend of a bunch stuff), fresh. The beer has a lot of flavors, and I just feel like it will change overtime into something different, yet just as good.

Very nice tart and sour beer. Pours a hazy amber colour with a nice bit of head that quickly dissipates into a few soapy looking sudz. The smell is pretty complex. It has a lot of similarity to the pinot noir barrelled Supplication, especially as it approaches room temperature, but with a bit more barnyard funk and hints of fruitiness. The taste is pretty tart and ascertive. Mouthfeel is nice and soft. Overall a very enjoyable beer that is a special treat to have.

The beer pours with a rusty brown color that has a small tan head on it. Some wisps left on the sides, it's a little heavy looking for a wild, but it's an attractive beer. Some sour and richer tart notes. The taste reminds me of T20, but fruitier, and should get better with a little bit of time. There's a lot going on here, it's pretty complex, and you can tell the tasters put in a good bit of time with the blending. The complexity, starts deep and big, and finishes lighter and fruity, is the real winner here. Good beer.

A: A very nice hazy orange. Very little head that stuck around the whole time.

Had this several times at the bar and got a few bottles to age.

A: Deep Rusty Red in color, Good clarity. Maintains a pretty decent head depending on the pour, we saw some really nice heads and some not so good ones. Lacing was as expected not as sticky as Pliny but still appealing.

S: Not as sour or pungent as I was expecting and marking the only thing in this beer that I feel could be improved upon. Subtle citrus, spicy, some Bretts and other Belgian yeast notes.

T: WOW. So complex. Really cool to drink a few glasses over an hour or two and pick out the brews that make up this amazing beer. Consecration being right up front but you get hint of Beatification as well as oaky damnation. So many flavors, combined so well. This beer is worth pursuing and worth aging, i can't wait to see how the flavor develops! Dunno this doesn't have a better review so far but I think over time it will climb.

M: Amazing, light on the alcohol well hidden, Carbonated perfectly.

O: Vinne has done it again, another World class beer that knocks your socks off!!!!

Enjoyed on draft at Toronado 3 or 4 times over the course of more than a week.

A: Pours a deep reddish-brown, with a bit of glow to it. One-finger head quickly dissolving to an off-white ring of bubbles around the edge. Minimal lacing.

S: Pungent sour and funk. Some red fruit and a little oak, though less than I would have assumed.

T: Basically sour, currants, astringency, and a hint of something dark. This is much more sour at release than T20 was. Really intriguing flavor but challenging also. I could not drink this all day (as opposed to, say, Beatification), but I do finish my glass wanting to drink more, in part because I feel I haven't fully grasped its flavors yet. Lots of elements, not all working together.

M: Perfect for a blended sour. Layered, a little slick, and beautifully carbonated. Russian River never falls short here.

O: A very good effort, but not as excellent as I hoped. I think it will continue to improve in the bottle, and some of the harsher flavors will mellow. If this integrates with age, I think it can become something special.

This review is for the draft offering only, I have not drank out of the bottle yet. Poured into a small tulip glass dark amber with a purple glow. I had a couple glasses and really let the second one sit a while. When it warms aroma is bright lime acidity, red currants, some red berries and a mild yet refined barrel presense. The flavor was huge and bursting with fresh limes, lemons, meshed in neatly with currants and wine barrel. Lots of wild yeast but so well weaved into the beer. This is way better than T20 in my opinion. Warming and letting this open do wonders as the bright acidity starts to shine and the fruits just wash over the mouth. Mouthfeel is perfect, quite fizzy but nails it like most RR sours.
