small bottle sample shared at a bar, from 750cl bottle. poured an amber colour with a deep red shade to it leaving a small off white coloured ring on top. notes of funky notes, grape skin, citrus, vineous notes, white grapes, spicy yeast, sweet marmalade, carbonation, oak, champagne, tart berries, musky malts notice, very weird combination. that didn’t end up like the way it should have been imo...

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle with Rachel & Pavel. Pours Pinkish Orange with a slim bubbly White head. Aroma of unkempt must. Like the smell of a cheap vinoteka or poorly cleaned up floor spill wine. Slightly vegetal, vinegary component. grapes and woodiness smashed together with a high ABV. Interesting but I didn’t like it so much.

In bottle. Reddish carent head. Amber with orange shadows. Cloudy. Medium intense, not very persistent. Vinous at nose is preminent. Citrus. Strong carbonation. Vinous taste in the entry, a bit bitter arrives for a moment and after I can taste the malty sweet in the end.

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.
