Bottle with no hiss on opening. Pours hazy orange flat with no head. Subdued aroma vinegar, grapes, oak. Taste is white grape juice, tart vinegar and oak. Nicely balanced sweet and tart. Similar to other Swiss sours I’ve had and very good despite getting a flat bottle.

BMan1113VR (7853) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours nearly flat. Some crap left around the mouth of the bottle. No head, Lightly hazed deep golden hue. Aromas are of red wine, wood, plums, under ripe fruit, light oak, funky, sour, rotten citrus/tamarind, lacto. Flavors are quite acetic and estery. Burning vinegar and sweet fruit with fusel and ester (plums, apple). Some red wine notes, but acetic to the point that it is undrinkable. Light carbonation. Really pretty rough. Expensive drain pour. Disappointing.
