4.05/5 rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
750ml corked and caged bottle. sampled feb 4/2011.
pours slightly hazy deep red, never quite reaching brown. beautiful ruby and garnet flares when held to light. just a few scant bubbles resulting from an aggressive pour. few spots of lace.
aroma is great. malt vinegar. lemon. bit of cider vinegar. big horse blanket and leather funk. hint of alcohol. white bread and cracker. hint of grain. bit of butterscotch. sour cherry. nice funky profile so far.
taste is nice. lemon. malt vinegar. bit of cider vinegar. leather and horse blanket. white bread and cracker. hint of alcohol. hint of cherry. a little more one-dimensional than the aroma. it fills out a little more as it warms, but still seems just a little flat.
mouthfeel is nice. medium-light body with a fairly dry finish. pretty much non-existent carbonation. nice brett mouthfeel.
drinkability is pretty good. loved the smell. falls a bit flat in the taste, losing a bit of its depth. i think even a little carbonation would do wonders for it. looks like the carbonation is mixed in other reviews, so i'll see if i can find another and re-evaluate.
