Russian River Temptation
Aged in French oak Chardonnay barrels, this wild ale pours a copper orange color with some haze. The head is bright white, creamy and large. The aroma is sour and tart with leather, earth and lemon. The mouth feel is spritzy and prickly with plenty of carbonation. The flavor is tart and fruity with apricot, tangerine, citrus rind, spice, oak, mineral and horse blanket. Man oh man this is awesomely aggressive and bracing.
