On-tap at the brewey on release day. Damn you TurdFurgison.
A: Cloudy deep current/iced tea color with a soft film of head. Great sheets of lacing left down the glass, great film retention.
S: Smells a bit like Consecration with a bit more fruit diversity. Tart smelling with good dry oak barrel quality. Stone fruits, maybe peach, and lots of dark fruits come through.
T: Definitely stone fruits mixed with dark fruits. I get a touch of lemon, currents, oak, acid, and a faint hint of acetone. The finish is fruity and dry.
M: Drying yet smooth mouthfeel. Tartness is clean, refreshing, and mild. Extremely drinkable. The tartness is acidicly citrus.
O: A very sold sour beer. It's no better than RR's year round sours but it's no worse, just different. I'd definitely buy this along with the other regular 375ml sours if this was available year-round.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the brewpub, $6.50 per glass. Deep copper color, clear with thin legs of lace. Complex is an understatement, lots going on in the aroma. I didn't get a chance to try the component beers but it seems evident that they contrast well. Definitely a darker smelling sour, more like Consecration than Temptation...
Assertive bite in the flavor, nothing too agressive but it gives a slight pucker which I appreciate. I get dark fruits like plums, possibly some lighter apricot as well. Not so much acetone.
This drinks very well, I had to pace myself. Very happy to try it, and I drank many glasses of it over a 3 day period, but many of RR's standard sours are equally good.
