Had this on 2012-07-11 in Bolingbrook, IL from a growler from the brew pub in Normal, IL.

A - Hazy straw-gold with a short head and almost no lace.

S - Lovely sour yeast and fruit; somewhat like a hard cider.

T - Fruity peach skin and citrus, nicely sour, light bready malt, light but pleasant oak. Fresh tasting. Dries nicely. Really delicious.

M - Light body and medium carbonation. A bit sparkly like champagne. Just right for the style.

O - Really enjoyable. Delicious and fresh tasting. Subtle flavors. Well balanced. Compares very favorably with the best Russian River sours, of which I'm quite familiar. It was a real treat to have this fine brew and I will certainly seek more of the St. Dekkera Reserve sours. BTW, my wife liked it every bit as much as I did.
