The body was a dark burnt orange color with lots of quickly ascending foam that had a bubbling throughout.

The nose was sour with a tangy mineralization, light vinegar and white wine. The Chardonnay aroma began to overtake the rest but yielded to a fragrant Apple blossom.

The flavors were not as complex as the nose may have suggested but the flavor was delicious. Apple, in several forms, was noticeable. I got Apple cider, Apple Brandy, Apple blossom and sweet yet tangy Granny Smith Apple's.

The feel is a bit tangy, a bit twangy and a touch like cider but very smooth.

This is a tangy one but quite good and quite flavorful.
