A: pours a murky orange-brown body that created a airy 1 fingers worth of milk white head that dissipated rather quickly. When back lit, small floaties are observed and the body becomes bright yellow. You can also see a hazy film within the body when back lit.

S: awesome huge sourness and oak. I pick up big sweet fruits, strawberries, vinegar, hay, big vinous characterstics. Very nicely balanced.. loving this aroma!

T: damn this is awesome! Huge huge sourness, tartness, vinegar, strawberries, and oak. Highly acidic (getting tums now). absolutely love the wine characters here

M: light on the palate. It leaves a long last dryness with a big tartness that creates immense salivation that lasts until the next sip. The palate does not get worn out by this brew whatsoever.

O: terrific and very well balanced brew here… definitely wish I had more.

Serving type: bottle
