A Mes rate. Bottle left over from our wedding haul. Damn good. A strange combo but it works well. Very acidic and sweet. Reminds me of La Folie in a lot of ways. The lemon comes through really well but doesnít take over with bitterness. Hint of Coca Cola on the nose that is really pleasing. Fruity as hell, bags of character but not aggressive. Really really good. There is just something holding it back from being brilliant. I think itís just slightly too acidic.

Bottle courtesy of thebaldwizard. Cloudy deep garnet amber with a large peach tinged head. Tart lactic berry and funky barnyard aroma. Sour fruity berry, hibiscus, barnyard funk, and oak flavor. Just enough sweetness to balance out the sourness. Also a very slight bitterness in the finish. Medium body, lively carbonation. Very enjoyable.
