Big thanks to whoever shared this bottle at Zwanze Day; was very cool to see this opened. 1996 vintage, poured into a taster.
a - Pours a golden-orange color with one inch of off white head and low carbonation evident.
s - Smells of old bread, biscuit malts, grapes, lemon, spice, light oak and funk, earthy notes, and some hay. Lightly funky which is nice and lightly tart.
t - Tastes of bready, grapes, wine, lemon, citrus, hay, earthy notes, funk, oak, nuts, dough, biscuit malts, and some light mustiness. Nice but kind of old-tasting.
m - Light body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.
o - Overall this was very cool to try, but seemed past its prime to me. It wasn't very funky or sour and was a bit old/musty; would love to get a newer bottled and try it again. Probably wouldn't seek out the 1996 version.
