Bottle shared at Levi’s tasting. My first French sour I believe. Very sour. Gritty texture and an orange color. Some yeast and fruit. I like this very much. The palate is unusual and the sourness is great.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted on 2/7/14 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, thanks to blomster for sharing. Pours hazy pale orange with a thin beige head that quickly disappears. The nose is super funky with some lemon vinegar, a touch of honey and some nutty oxidation. The flavor is quite sour, a nutty sherry note, red wine vinegar sour, and a touch of honey. The body is medium with grippy tannin, and a long nutty sherry finish. There is a good amount of vinegar to this one, but the sherry similarities really appeal to me.

750 ml bottle shared by Blomster on Friday night at RBWG. Thanks again! Pours a hazy, dull gold with no head. Aroma of earth, funk, vegetal notes, lemon, and yogurt. Flavor of lemon, lactic acid, cheese, vinegear, and white grape skins. Medium-bodied, with a tart, lactic mouthfeel and low to moderate carbonation. Pretty interesting sour.
