Pours ruby into a snifter. Pink head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Raspberry and funk aromas. Dry with raspberry and lactose upfront turning to lemon/lime and crust in the lasting finish.

Radek Kliber (7259) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Where and how: bottle 375 ml, tasting
Aroma: highly phenolic, soft sweet raspberry like aromas, hint of alcohol. Behind mild tartness and hint of oak barrel.
Appearance :
Top: poured with lighter top.
Base: hazy murky amber.
Palate : medium lighter body, long finish.
Taste: very tart, fruits, tart raspberry with some alcohol dryness. Late oak hints. Good but this one is one sided creation.

ctipping (1667) - Florida, USA - APR 4, 2016
375 mL bottle. Red body. Smells intensely acidic. Raspberry. Vinegar. And some chemical aromas like plastic and acetone. Tastes of a pretty pleasant raspberry for one brief moment. Then it turns acetic and vinegary. And then it turns chemical. Really sour. Very difficult to drink. At least the fleeting moment of raspberry is decent.
