Appearance: Hazy amber grape fruit color. Head is tight bubbles that last the run of beer.

Smell: Aroma is oak, cherries, yeast...mystery.

Taste: The wild yeasts have been hard at work. Scores of dried apricots, tart cherries, yeasty goodness with a touch of citrus. Truly amazing.

Mouthfeel: Cream and silk, perfectly balanced.

I :heart: this beer.

Batch 003 that I brought back from the brewery during a Bay Area trip last March. Great time and waited long enough to pop this cork.

A: Amber/orange pour that fizzled like champagne when poured. The body is translucent, but a tady hazy at the same time. Poured effervecence lingers to form a lily pad of head that has centered in my glass.
S: Perfectly-soured cherries! A nice aroma pronounces the said added fruit along with light grapefruit.
T: Puckering sour deliciousness. Magnificence abounds. Cherries punch out again, as well as brilliant sour familiarity that has come to be expected from RR.
M: A rich, sweet liquid pours over my tongue, across palate and swirls down throat. Perfectly balanced flavors drink extremely well.
D: Rarity and scarceness should not stop you from obtaining/relishing/savoring/enjoying this offering from RR. Amazing! I will jump at the opportunity to enjoy this beer again.

A nice two finger head formed atop the beer in my tulip glass. Had a brief stay and fell to a thin cap. Beer is a dull copper color with excellent clarity. At first a touch of lacing, but later it was all over the inside of the glass.

Aroma is awesome. Tart cherries, earthiness and some oak notes. As it warms the aroma mellows and becomes more toasty.

Wow, I just love this. Very nutty, toasted cashews. Of course, nice tart cherries and a touch of vinegar. Wood notes linger in your mouth. Some of the same flavors I encountered in Allagash Vagabond. Once you become accustomed to the sour notes, the flavor just explodes. The oak notes play perfectly with the tart cherry flavor.

Mouth feel is light and fluffy initially then powerful. Carbonation brings the flavor to life.

Ok I'll be trading for more of this. Just an awesome beer to drink. I am making myself savor every last drop however, I want to consume it faster as it's just wonderful. Hats off again to Russian River.

Bought these on-line from Russian River and was generously sent to me by 0110x011. I love Russian River and I especially love these sour wild ales. Drank from my Stone India Pale Ale tulip. Batch 003.

Appearance- Pours a sunset orangeish pink with a nice big two finger bright white head. The head doesn't leave, ever, and the lacing that is left is bewildering thick and coating.
Smell- Mildly sour and tart with that fantastic yeasty wildness. Feint funk that isn't over the top like some of these can be (definitely not saying that in a bad way) and twinges of bright zesty citrus. The cherries are easily detectable and probably the focal point of the nose. A sort of metallic like sensation is given off; reminiscent of the sensation you get when smelling blood or rusted iron. Beautiful nose!
Taste- Beautifully sour and lactic but not puckering or vinegary. The Brett has done its job well on this one but I don't know how it doesn't have that sour lingering tartness that can sometimes make these brews hard to drink more than one. The cherries are sour and raw with a very fresh vibrant taste. The oak woodiness isn't as prominent as I expected but this brew has more acidic wine character than the others like it I've tried. Apparently the pinot noir has really worked its way into this one. Lightly funky and dank this brew is everything I could want in a wild ale. The aftertaste lingers with sweet twang that is lighty vanilla, lightly cherry.
Mouthfeel- Very sharp aggressive carbonation with a fairly hefty body and a dry quenching finish.
Drinkability- This is one of those brews that I could easily enjoy daily and probably not get sick of it. The sourness isn't over the top but it's prevalent enough to satisfy that sour tooth that I've acquired as of late. Terrifically balanced and funky I think this is a absolutely brilliant brew that must be tried! Big thanks to Matt for sending this my way!

375ml bottle into Duvel tulip. Batch 005X3, so bottled 5/3/10. Thanks to BA msulinski for trading me this bottle!

Appearance: Moderate pour yields a one inch fizzy white head that dissipates slowly. Pours a semi-translucent dark red and leaves large, many-pointed swatches of lacing that don't go away.

Smell: In the bottle: sour cherries and acetic sourness. In the glass: oak, some mild Brett, and even milder sour cherry in the background. Lactic sourness comes out quickly. The smell develops heavily minutes after leaving the bottle, and gets nice and deep with warmth. Almost floral. Good, but a bit faint.

Taste: First sip is sour cherry up front with a big, complex and tangy Brett note, a nice hit of sourness and then a soft but full oak note and more Brett. Sour cherry and tartness come back for the long aftertaste. Second sip brings out some surprisingly distinct and prominent Pinot Noir flavor, then more sour cherry and tons of Brett.

It's been awhile since I've had a wild ale this Bretty... I love it. That said, everything here is in balance. There's multiple types of sourness, a decent brown ale occasionally detectable underneath all the barrel treatment, and lots of strong and interesting flavors constantly emerging.

The sour cherry notes are substantial but mild; this isn't sour cherry forward like Red Poppy (which, deliciously, tastes like drinking sour cherries). The fruit notes are integrated like everything else. Even the dominant Brett manifests as distinct, complimentary notes; tangy up front, deep and musty in back. Despite the 7% ABV, there is not a hint of solvent or booziness anywhere in the vast array of flavors in this beer.

Each sip yields exciting and bold flavors up front and in the middle, then a beautiful, oaky mellowing into the tart and Bretty finish and aftertaste. World class stuff.

Mouthfeel: Light side of medium bodied. Perfect carbonation; abundant but just enough to keep the feel soft and creamy. Despite the numerous types of sourness, the feel is never stinging or abrasive. There's a great clarity to the flavor, bolstered by the excellent mouthfeel.

Overall: This beer is a real treat. It's one of those endlessly complex and delicious beers where even when you write too much in your review, you still haven't properly described all the beautiful things going on in the flavor. When you get the chance to drink this beer, take it.

Warning: Open this bottle over a bowl so that when it overflows you can still pour it into your glass. I did not use a bowl so the table got to drink a few ounces.

Batch 002
Pours a hazy reddish-brown color with a quickly dissipating off-white head. Smell is very tart, there are aromas of cherries, but there isn't a whole lot to them, predominant smells of sour and funk. This is not as sour as some other beers of this style, but that's not the goal, the goal is to create a damn good brew and I would say mission accomplished. There are sour cherries in the taste as well, but it's more of a vinegar-like sourness mixed with some oak and some grapes. Mouthfeel was medium bodied and had medium levels of carbonation, finish was dry. Extremely drinkable, I would have plenty of this often if I were given the chance.

375ml bottle dated 1/7/14 poured into a tulip
A: Medium brown with a slight reddish tint; its head starts out at one-finger, settles to 1/2 finger then lingers at that level
S: Intoxicating with sour cherries, a hint of vinegar, subtle wine/oak notes, and a mix of fresh herbs
T: Can't get better. Sour cherries, cranberries, some barnyard frunk, grass, subtle oak and a very long finish
M: Surprisingly light with pleasant carbonation; quite acidic
O: I don't think I've ever taken smaller sips of a beer trying to savor every last bit. This is fantastic in its complexity and also very refreshing. Wonderful beer

Review from notes

thanks to jdefont!

Batch 4 

Pours a reddish with thin white head.  Smells like oak, cherries with some sourness. Tastes like sour cherries, slightly tart, sour finish. You can taste the wood in there as well, very good beer. Drinkability is high, mouthfeel is good, I could drink a lot of these if they distributed to Indiana, that and if they were cheaper.

375ml bottled into a Russian River "TION" glass.

Pours a nice light brown with a small tan head. Aromas of tart cherries, oak, and funkiness. Taste was nothing short of amazing..tart, dry and refreshing. Medium body with just the right amount of carbonation to make the sourness pop. A fantastic example of how a sour beer should be done. If I had access to this all the time I could see it being a regular offering in my fridge.

Our good friend Justin (a.k.a. JustinA1, formerly Unwiseman Crappler) brought this back from his trip to Santa Rosa. Thanks a ton buddy! Much appreciated!

Poured into a Cigar City snifter.

Appearance: Pours out caramel-colored and oily, producing very little head. A very thin, white halo retains for the entire session, and leaves just a touch of lacing. Body is crystal clear and reddish copper. Looks nice.

Smell: Juicy lemon, blackberry tarts, cherries, and, of course, brettanomyces. Sweet and sour aromas come together beautifully! No vinegar here. Mouthwatering!

Taste: Initially sugary, but rapidly switches to sour bret. Cherries are subtle, but there. Dry esters pick up midway through, and I also get just a touch of salt. Finishes like cherry lemonade. I love the sourness, and as Wiseman Zach said (after trying this - his first sour!), "This one really grows on ya." Huge sourness. I love it!

Mouthfeel: Delicately carbonated, dry, and tremendously sour. Lots of mouth-numbing and/or palate-wrecking. Pretty light in body though. Exactly how a wild ale should be.

Drinkability: Sadly, I only got about 4oz. of this. I would've gladly taken more. Thank you SO much Mr. Appler! This is the best sour I've had to date!

375ml brown mini-magnum with "Batch Number 001" on the label.

A- Hazed orange amber with a showing of active carbonation, awesome lacing ... it literally sticks every where.

S- Tartness of a lambic but clean like an American ale. Well maybe not totally clean as there is a mild cellar / barn yard character from the wild yeast in the aroma. I can barely pick out the sour cherries in the aroma as the wood blankets the nose. Fruit cake?

T- A thick layer of bready malt runs up against a solid tartness, both don't collide yet they meld together. Big wild yeast flare with a weathered hop bite in the middle. Big snap of tartness flows with a mild sweetness from the cherries and malt. The woodiness is more of back ground character yet adds more complexity to the brew than anything else IMO. More tartness and a growing woody dryness in the finish.

M- Creamy with a bitty wood bite that leads to a dry palate.

D- So easy to quaff that I struggled to savor every drop.

By far the best American beer I have had this year, It is beers like this that inspire and show where modern American brewers can go ... there are no boundaries.

Received this bottle from a great California trader, Arbitrator, who hooked me up for the recent release. Bottle is batch 04x5. Had this one other time from a different batch on tap at my first GABF and loved it. Interested to see how it differs from a bottle.

Appearance- Pours a translucent shade of darkish amber into my snifter and comes out of the bottle with about a finger of slightly off-white head. Massive amounts of beading up the side of my glass as I drink and the head dies back rather slowly into a fairly dense sheet across the top of the beer. What gets this beer particularly high marks in the looks department from me is the lacing. For a barrel-aged sour, this beer leaves a tremendous amount of lacing as I drink. Really looks nice in the glass.

Smell- Wow, very tart with lots and lots of oak coming through. Right up front, you get a whiff of that lactic tartness that is tinted with a cherry fruitiness and perhaps just a touch of barnyard funk. After that comes the wood, which mixes very nicely with the tartness and slight fruitiness. Smells great.

Taste- Very very complex. Up front, I get the fruity, cherry tartness. Mixed in with this is the oak, a woody pithiness, and some iron. For me, this drinks amazingly like a complex Flanders red ale. Possibly the best integrated, most flavorful Russian River that I've had (though I have yet to be disappointed). Really like this one.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability- Mouthfeel is well-carbonated and has a good deal of body for the style. Being a sourhead, the well integrated flavors and overall high quality of this brew really put the drinkability off the charts.

Overall, an outstanding sour. I really like this and it is probably my favorite Russian River to date (out of Consecration and Temptation). Get ahold of this one.

Poured from 375ml bottle into Bordeaux wine glass.
Batch 006x1

Aroma: A mix of lemony tartness and cherry sweetness, with an underlying funky barnyard note. Cherry sweetness, accompanied by a vanilla character, comes to the forefront as beer warms and opens up.

Appearance: One finger off-white head disappears somewhat quickly (but then again, this is not a style known for dense, pillowy heads of foam). The body of the beer has a beautiful clear deep reddish-brown "sun tea"-like color.

Flavor: Prominent, lip-smacking rhubarb-like tartness, which lingers through the finish. Tart red cherry, accompanied by green apple skin, and a light wild earthiness appear toward the end. At no point does bitterness appear through the clean finish.

Mouthfeel: Slight sting from the medium-high carbonation. Medium-low body. Mouth waters from delicious tartness.

Overall: A fantastic, balanced, approachable wild ale. Lots to contemplate. Barnyard character is noticeable, but not overwhelming. Aroma presents a cherry-like sweetness while the taste of the beer is tart overall. I highly recommend this one for both the sour novice, who's trying to expose their palate to these types of beers, and also for the aficionado!

A: poured into a Russian River 'tion' glass to a deep reddish brown with a small bone colored head that fades quickly to a collar around the glass
S: smells of sour fruits, some oakyness and tanins, and some slight funk
T: sour cherries up front with some good acetic courness, a bit of vanilla and oak with lingering sourness throughout the drink. swallow brings some tannins and solvent flavors with a bit more vanilla and oak
M: medium in the mouth with soft and slightly prickly carbonation with a slightly dry finish
O: probably the gold standard of american wild ales and sour beers. very good with a great amount of sourness and great flavors. top notch across the board

Props to WarriorSoul for the bottle!
Poured into my wide-mouth Duvel tulip.
Poured a very murky orangy-apple cider color. Minimal head with a ton of small bubbles. The very fine lace stayed throughout and re-emerges with gentle encouragement.
There is a galaxy of tiny black specs floating throughtout the beer, but settled to the bottom. Yeast? Cherry pit scrapnel? Not sure what it is. Had no adverse effects on this beer.
Nose of sour cherry and earthy yeast mustyness. Enjoyably tart. Very vinous and smells of a well made hard cider.
Not exactly sure how to catagorize what I'm tasting. It's unlike any beer I've ever tried before. Sour wild cherry and Brett takes presidence, along with musty fruit-cake, minus the nuts. Subdued hoppiness but there is a malty sweetness. Quite dry and woody. My vocabulary cannot express what I'm actually tasting. So much complexity here. Maybe it's not meant to be described.
Very drinkable, smooth dry body. At 7% I wasn't expecting anything too heavy. Mouthfeel reminded me of a nice dry cider.

Awsome beer from Russian River and Vinnie. Like I said before, unlike anything I've previously had. Almost too good for words.

12.68 oz. bottle purchased on a recent trip to San Francisco, unclear bottling date (batch #009), poured into my FFF Teku glass, drank 8/3/13 over an hour.

A: 2/3 - orange-brown coloration, minimal clarity (cannot see through), off-brown/white head dissipates into small glass lacings, surprising big alcohol legs for a 7.00%ABV concoction

S: 11/12 - lots of pungent sour notes admixed with cherries and mild tannins imparted by the use Pinot Noir bottles; really enticing aroma

T: 19/20 - on the anterior tongue, there's a strong sourness - vinegar, sour cherries and even some apple cider notes, in the middle of the mouth, some of the vinous qualities start to rear their head - tannins, grapes and stone fruit; the alcohol is present but certainly not overwhelming in the taste with some minor malt characters to hint at balancing

M: 5/5 - moderate bodied and appropriately carbonated for an American wild ale; really nice dry, crisp finish that doesn't linger with a puckering sourness

O: 10/10 - as opposed to some of their other beers, which I believe have a tendency to be overrated, this one lives up to the hype; on numerous levels, it's just about a perfect sour - tart, refreshing, dry with a complex aroma and flavor; cheers to Vinny C. for reinforcing my faith in the power of the sour!

TOTAL = 47/50

2015 Vintage reviewed on 11/15/15:
Pours a gorgeous red color with little head. Aroma of cherry, oak, lactic acid, green apple, Pinot Noir... flavor follows the aroma with tart raspberry, cranberry, vanilla, citrus, slight lambic-like funk, Pinot, and tannins from both the barrels and dried cherry skins ..complex, balanced and absolutely wonderful. The feel is light and spot on for the style. Sparkling carbonation. Overall, a spectacular beer.

12/2014 Vintage reviewed on 3/13/16:
Pours an amber/copper with small off white head. Aroma of green apple, oak, funk, slight wine barrel, slight malt. Flavor follows the aroma with hints of cherry and a slightly different "twang than the other bottle reviewed that was 1 yr younger(fresh). The year of age has affected the color and flavor of this beer tremendously. I get much less of a red color, and much more funk and acetic notes than the fresh bottle. It is neither good nor bad comparing, just different. Very pleasing. More vinous. Carbonation is slightly higher but not tremendously.

Now THIS is what a sour beer should taste like! Supplication has been on my bucket list for a long time and it's so nice when something actually lives up to the hype. The flavor of wine comes through loud and clear on this one and though it is sour it is not overly so. Really the only way I can adequately describe it is to say that it is delicious

After a few sips, and as the sour warmed. I got a big pinot noir flavor in the back after the puckering sourness faded. I get a must flavor as well, but nice wine quality with this sour. I get some vinegar, but big wine character that doesn't go away.

Probably my favorite sour around. As far as a taste review, I cant name everything in it, it is just sour tart and awesome. It has some great wine characteristics and a go to sour when I am at the pub. Russian River makes some wonderful sours but this one is on the top of them all

Poured from a corked and caged bottle into a snifter. Batch 008.

A- Pours an off red. Large white head forms on the bottle. Numerous fizzy bubbles can be seen going to the surface. The head dissipates and forms a frothy film along the top.

S- Grapes and cherries. Definitely reminds me of the smell of wine.

T- I've only had a few sour/ wild ales but this one takes it. Initially I get a bit of an alcohol taste which sharply turns sour. The sour taste leads back to grapes and cherries.

M- Light, carbonated and sour.

Just starting out with this style of beer but Supplication will be hard to beat. A must try.

This beer came my way as an extra from Sholand. Thanks man this is a great beer. The beer was served chilled in a wide mouthed goblet.

Appearance: The body of the beer is ruby coloration. The head is short lived white coloration. A thin rim of white rings the rim of my glass. Webbing of lacing marks the beers passage.

Smell: I hesitate to call any wild ales aroma clean. Musty cellar aroma combine with tart semi sweet cherries grapes and oaken barrel.

Taste: The flavor of the beer is loaded with tart cherries. Nice bracing bret sourness. Again I hesitate to call it a clean flavor but I love the brief sweetness of cherries and then the tartness nice oak tones noted to flavor.

Mouthfeel / Drinkability: The sourness and the tartness are well balanced. The body is light and very refreshing. A very drinkable sour beer. The beer disappeared from my glass way too fast. This beer is an American classic.

WOW. Beer, meet cherries. Cherries meet champagne. this is quite simply an astounding beer and I hate fruit in my beer typcially.

A small head coats the sides as you drink this bad boy down. Cherries are front and center followed by the taste of a nice champagne yeast, unlike anything I have ever tasted in a beer before. This was followed by the nice flavors of a mild brown ale. Tart, but not overly slow with a tangy middle and a nice ale finish. Just a real gem.
