2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy colour of rust with a great head of foam. I figured that since it was an extremely slow gusher.
The nose is fruity with apple, evidence of mild tartness, flowery and to me, has a mint presence.
Apple and some tartness up front, followed by an assertive Brett character. Again, mint and an abundance of bitterness.
Medium body with champagne like carbonation.
Good points, bad points. The sharpness and uber dryness make it not overly drinkable.
