3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle shared by Ben, pours a dark brown with an off white head, the aroma has a nice amount of brett with a little bit of dark fruit and a sweetness at the same time, the flavor has a soft sour front end with some of the oak vanilla coming through in the finish, pretty different, some chocolate tones mixed in with the sourness too, good stuff.
