2002 vintage 750ml corked and caged bottle

Clear, pale gold with a hint of orange. Tight, dense off white head with good retention and lacing. Sharp and refreshing aroma of tart wheat, white grapes, grass, lemony citrus, slightly musty yeast, medicinal phenols, and apple-like fruitiness.

Flavor begins with a small splash of medicinal sourness. Then the wheat malt and grapes take over, with a smooth tartness and dryness. Some musty and chalky yeast. A fair amount of subtle apple fruitiness rounds things out. There’s a bit of coriander flavor, even though I find no evidence of that spice being used here. Pretty much zero noticeable hop flavor or bitterness. Finish is mildly phenolic, with some leather, woody, and vanilla notes. The barrel aging has imparted a touch of woodiness, which combines with the tannins in the grapes for a fairly dry finish. Crisp and clean in the mouth, with a fairly light body highlighted by a slightly prickly carbonation. Yeast pour towards the end of the bottle adds some creaminess, along with a touch of peppery spiciness.

Overall, a unique and relaxing brew that I wish I could have around in the summer.

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.
