3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Bottle: Really deep chestnut brown color, opaque except for the very top sliver. Foamy, soapy beige head. Aroma loaded with sour bugs, lemon, tart cherry, woody tannins, yogurty lacto, mild acetic acid, faint perfume. Nice tart flavor; cherry skin, lemon, perfume, under-ripe prune, a touch of vinous booziness, lots of oak in the finish with some acidity that dries things up & puckers the gums a bit. Dry body, medium mouth feel. Nice.
