3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 (Bottled, 0.75l) Hazy darkish amber with a small, firm head. Tart and wineous nose with peachy wild yeast, and a touch of acidity from the grapes. Mildly tart, bretty and fruity flavor with plenty of yeast, a touch of acidity, cloves and some cherries. Almost medium body with low, yet slightly fizzy carbonation. Quite mild and mellow overall, but quite enjoyable. Will cellar the other bottle for some years to let the brettanomyces really kick in. 4264 (Revisit 2013-11-02: Still only mild tartness present. Quite berry-fruity, not very interesting, almost watery. Good, but expected more.)
