Served from a 750ml C&C bottle into a Crooked Stave tullip. Cellar temp. Vintage 2011.

Appearance- Clear amber/gold with quick bubbly white head that fell quickly leaving no lacing.

Smell- I get some white grape and lemon, some oaky funk, earthy grassy aromas. My nose is a little off today.

Taste- Lots of lemon and peach with mild grapes. Not as grapey as Chardonneighbor or Muscat d'Ammore. Gueze-like characteristics with minimal fruit. Moderately sour up front, but fades off. Lots of oak.

Mouthfeel- Well carbonated, moderatly sour, reasonably dry. Moderate pucker.

Overall- A very nice sour. Easy to drink especially at 9+%.
