750 mL bottle. Bottle #162/353. Originally reviewed 7/22/2014.
Pale reddish body. Very small white head. Settles to nothing.
Quite a complex nose. I guess that’s grape. Very fruity. Oaky. Lightly lemony. Yogurt.
Flavor has lots of berry fruit. Sour. Yogurty lactic sour. A little lemony, but then it gets really overwhelmed by oak.
Well carbonated. Moderate sourness.
Remarkably complex flavor profile from an American sour. Just a little too oaky for me.
