Bottled. An unclear red beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of cherries, straw, and vinegar. The flavor is acidic with notes of vinegar and cherries, leading to a tart finish. The acidity draws out the mouthwater.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2015 37.5 ml bottle courtesy of Franco, shared with SHIG on Oct 16, 2010. Special thanks to Franco for sharing this one, and for spending a wonderful afternoon with us! Pours slightly hazy orange, medium white head. Aroma of strawberries, pineapple, slight raspberries, dust. Taste is acidic, very fruity with strawberries dominating. Good character and complexity already, but I can’t wait to see what happen to this one over time - it has great potential. I hope he and Umberto brew it again next year! 9-4-9-4-18. Next rating, 750 ml bottle shared with ajax25g on November 6, 2013. Poirs cloudy rose red color, thin pink head. Aroma is amazing, with attic dust and basement funk, with bright fruit in the background. Taste is softly sour cherries, strawberries, lemon. Dry finish. Amazing.

brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Murky orange-red pour with a small white head. Nose is musty and very heavy on the grapes. Strong funk, lots of fruit, and plenty of acid. A touch of lemon zest, some blue cheese, and a bit of damp straw. Flavor is lightly sweet from the grapes, but still has a very pronounced acidity and sourness. Nice blue cheese funk, some grass, straw, and must. Strong citrus notes, a bit of oak, and a lot of barnyard funk.
