500ml bottle. Sweet guava aroma with notes of red wine, Brett, tropical fruit and oak. Pours clear golden colored with a thin white head that has good retention and excellent lacing. Starts with sweet guava and tropical fruit flavors to go with a bright, lively mouthfeel. Finishes dry but quite smooth with red wine, Brett and oak flavors with tart Brett lingering on the palate slightly. Good stuff!

500 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a cloudy lemony pineapple with white head. Smells of oak, funk, and guava alongside a nice vinous presence from the barrel. Tastes like it smells, but not as robust. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and pleasantly acidic. Tasty.
