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.
