Prob my favorite of the sour -tion series (I happen to have an even greater love for the oft forgotten non-sour Damnation and Redemption). The sour cherries are right there, melded seamlessly with the base brown, which proves a suitable foundation for the fruit and bacteria party going on. It's just a bit more drinkable and savorable than Consecration, which is sometimes just a bit too beastly for my palate. Fine stuff from RR, but would you really expect any less?
