MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, - OCT 19, 2009
Bottle 375ml. Aged 18 months piror to tasting. Poured dark muddy blood with a small, pink, frothy head which was mostly lasting. Aroma had almost perfume like characteristics with notes of roses, violets, crushed raspberries, sour cherries, wild yeast and salt water. Flavor was extremely tart with a massive acidic bite; gooseberry skins, sour cherries, red wine vinegar and light notes of oysters & salty brine. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry/spritzig mouthfeel, ever-so slightly syrupy texture and a superb length finish. Amazingly delicate yet infinitely complex.

Robe rougeoyante qui fait pas dans le chiqué du rouge cerise pimpant mais laisse la part à de reflets bruns. Bouteille du " 11 Février 2015 ". Si elle est acide, je ne la trouve pas pour autant agressive ni mordante. Au contraire, le gaz fin à l’attaque, donne une sensation crémeuse en bouche. Peut-être encore un peu trop fraîche à cette partie de la dégustation ? On est clairement pas dans la cerise droit dans ces bottes, telle que ce que l’industrie, avec ces arômes, voudrait nous faire croire. Très équilibrée donc et bien exécutée donc. Très asséchante et pour autant semble désaltérante ...

Bottle at Akkurat. Pours hazy red with small pink head. Funky aroma with tart cherries, oak and some floral notes. Taste is more funky, tart cherries, with some barnyardy oak and floral. High acidity.

McWorta (1073) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 20, 2015
Clear red-bronze colour with a pink fading head. Aromas of earthy barnyard cherry develops with some funk and moist wood. Tangy, fine carbonation, watery with a light-medium body. Pretty tart and acidic lacking some harmony. Dry tart lasting finish.

maxwelldeux (4182) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Draught. Pours a reddish color with a moderate pink head on there. Nose is sour with a lot of cherry to it, and that’s not a flavor I particularly care for. Taste is sour and with a lot of cherry. Not a huge fan of this.
