3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
from bottle at mondial 2014, mtl. cloudy golden orange pour with a decent off-white head offering some retention. lightly toasted maltiness, definitely a fruity presence - berries if not grapes - imparted by fruits and yeast - also brett and champagne dryness, herbal-grassy and very peppery. lively carbonation - some champagne-like bubbles, light to medium body - oily and never too heavy, relatively dry grassy-peppery-spicy finish. interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a really hazy orange with a small weak rim that doesn’t leave much lacing. I blame the handling of the bottle on this one, though, so your bottle may well be better. Nose is fresh, spicy, vinous and lightly tart (well, you get the impression of a tart beverage to come). Taste is of grapes and less tart than the nose would suggest but still nice. Finish is fruity and a little acidic. Mouthfeel was vinous, carbonation medium to high and body kind of light. Nice one!
