April 2008 Bottle. Thanks Wavers! Pours a cloudy golden with a thick small bubbled head. Nose of grapes, spice, oak, quite vinous and very spritzy-champagne like. Flavor begins with some grassy bitterness, tart clementine juice, lemon. Oxidation is slightly evident. Thin and spritzy.

emacgee (4426) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Shared by turdferguson. Pours a slightly cloudy straw gold with one finger of sticky eggshell white head. Very interesting nose, vinous with sherry-like notes of oxidation, a mild spice, and mildly cidery notes. Bready and kind of musty flavor, definitely some age and oxidation. Kind of thin body.

Flicka (19) - Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Appearance is a very murky golden color and it has a lot of floating dark sediment. It smells like citrus fruit. The taste is fruity and hoppy. It does not leave a great after taste. The texture is thin.

cwsample (163) - Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle thanks to Cavie. Cloudy golden color with some serious sediment. Smells like banana, tastes sweet and sour. Not terrible, but not something I would drink regularly.
