Into a tulip, pours a pink soapy head atop a body of deep ruby red and tinges of purple. The head reemerges quick upon agitation, with thick legs sliding down the side.
Tingly, prickly aromas of raspberries and brett funk blending for a fine balance. Intense just enough for a light *whiff* to derive the whole bouquet.
Rich, raspberry flavors with tons of tartness washing across the palate, with both the aforementioned brett funk and oak manifesting primarily on the finish. Also exhibits some wine characteristics, mostly Zinfandel. Everything just dovetails mouth-puckeringly right.
Mouthfeel Is light to medium-bodied. Sticky 'icky residual on the gums after swishing.
Overall, FDA is comparable to drinking a super tasty Framboise tinged with the cheesy funk of a typical Jolly Pumpkin, though the oak characteristics complement the overall flavor perfectly. Also complements well with the brie I’m pairing it with. This is a repeat-funk cheddar-offender and I’ll be returning as much as humanly possible.
