fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle from Lortica, Bologna, bottle 6478, Cuvée 2010, 2 years old, batch 2010, bb 2050
Dark amber-red color, with sparse big bubbles. The aroma reveal cherries, some Bretts, light balsamic, very light acetone. It’s mostly uncarbonated; the mouthfeel is lean; some dryish malt flavor, with Bretts, and rather strong vinegary character; medium sourness, medium fruity touch, with grapes and some grapefruit bitterness; moderate bitterness overall, with cherry tannins in the end, and quite strong astringency.
An interesting one, with aging potential.
