Sampled at RBSG 2016 in Pittsburgh, PA at a hotel gathering after the grand tasting. In the tasting glass a cloudy copper orange head with white foam. Nose of funk and fruit, with solemn tartness. Medium body. Flavor runs to tart tropical fruit, and interesting combination and the fines is dry and tart. Darn nice stuff,
