On-tap at Green Dragon Brewpub. Poured into a large snifter.
A - Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Tons of lacing stick to the sides of the glass. A solid stream of bubbly carbonation can be seen shooting up the center of the glass.
S - As I expected, the first smell that hits my nose is the funky Brett. Combines with the tartness from the sour grapes/lemons and the aromas of white wine and oak from the barrel aging. Creates the aroma I expect from a Russian River sour.
T - Brett funk and oak pop out to me first. Some white wine nuances follow. It's wrapped up with apples, grapes and lemon to create a nice fruity tartness that combines well with the funky sour flavor from the yeast.
M - Light bodied with a nice amount of carbonation. Crisp, effervescent and smooth with a dry finish. Very easy to drink. I found it quite refreshing.
O - Another great sour from RR. Everything really works in unison to create a refreshing sour ale that I would love to enjoy again.
