mcberko (9223) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2015 12 oz. bottle, pours a dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma is very complex, with red wine barrels, various wild bacteria, some wood, balsamic and prominent acidity. Flavour matches, with loads of complexity from the various wood, including red wine barrels and oak in general, wild yeast, and medium acidity that is well-suited. Very dynamic and cohesive. Masterful blend here; however, the acidity starts to irritate the throat after a while. Still, excellent very slow sipper.

blipp (6880) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle. Pours amber with a beige head. Moderate acidity throughout, with some woody notes, light funky notes, fruity berry-like notes, and a sharp tart finish. Not bad.

Sour smell. Generic sour brown taste with a bit of general wine taste to it. Good, but nothing fantastic.
