Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode 7
Consecration – Russian River Brewing (Santa Rosa, CA) ABV 10% 4.5 out of 5
My family was camping in bodega bay which made it easy to drive to Santa Rosa and pick up a few bottles at Russian River Brewing Company including this amazing American Sour Ale. consecration is an Ale aged 4-8 months in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels with currents added.
Dark brown color with a tan head. The most incredible sour scent with a wine nose. Strong tart and bitter sour flavor, I get the wine in the back end. I get the flavor of the currents at first taste. This is one great sour ale. The bottle is a little over 12oz and it’s $13.
