Russian River Supplication

Every time I have a beer from Russian River Brewing Company I comment on how wonderful each an every beer seems to be. You might be tired of this now, especially if you cannot get their beers or haven’t had them. I don’t live anywhere near the brewery and usually get my fix from my cousin who lives out in California.

It could quite possibly be the fact that the difficulty at which I go through to get their beers makes them taste better but, based on what other reviews I see on the web, Russian River just makes damn good beer.

Supplication donned my glass the third time overall. Each time I have this beer I wonder at how well balanced. The sour is there but let’s all the other flavors come through and doesn’t make me clench my fists with each sip. Last night I actually marveled at how easy it went down with the sour seeming to draw me in each time.

I haven’t had a ton of sours but Supplication could easy be my favorite. Balance, drinkability, and overall enjoyment all aid in this opinion. Enjoy!

Aroma: 10, Taste: 10, Look: 9, Drinkability: 9, Overall: 9.5

Useless Fact: There is 1 mile of railroad track in Belgium for every 1 and a half square miles of land.
