Russian River Consecration 750ml:


Four more cases came in today. This beer has been one hot ticket and I was glad / surprised to see a little more show up.

This strong dark ale aged for 6 months inside used cabernet sauvignon barrels with currants added. Rusty brown in color it pours with little head. The aroma is big, sour, and fruity. Classified as a “Wild” ale; the brett notes come through with a touch of that barnyard goodness. The flavor is a mix of berry black current (of course) and hints of cherry and raspberry. I’m so excited to see Russian River’s barrel aged product make it up my way. Stuff like this is obviously limited but I get as much as I can. No bottle limits on this one. 10.5%ABV / 1.092 O.G
