Bottle dated Feb 14, 2007 and poured into a snifter. Shared with Waltonc after splitting a bottle of CBS earlier in the evening. A high class evening of drinking.
Pours a pinkish-red color - similar to a rose’ - with a thin cap of head. Carbonation bubbles stream up the side. The smell is incredible on this - pungent raspberry jam is dominant with a faint barrel funk. The taste is more sour and lactic with the fruit falling towards the end, but still quite prevalent after 4 years of sitting in the bottle. Tart lemons, balsamic vinegar, and fairly acidic but not overwhelming and quite balanced. A moderate level of carbonation keeps things lively on the acidic and keeps things refreshing. Overall one of the best sours that I've had - an almost perfect balance of fruit and sour and very glad that I was able to get a bottle - and given the scarcity, will likely be the last one I’ll come across.
