look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours ruby red with a small off-white head. Slight retention and lacing.

Grapes assert themselves boldly in the aroma. A lot of brett funky, oak and vinous smells too. A little bit tannic.

Vinous notes come out even more in the flavor and it's not quite as tart as the aromas indicate. In addition to the grapes there is a lot of funky brett, oak and tannins. Finishes dry with good drying sensation from the oak. Enough tartness here to stand out, but more funky than tart.

Medium bodied. Finishes dry on the palate. Alcohol very well hidden. Would have only pegged this one as a 5-6%

Definitely want to seek out another bottle of this to age. This would be another one to switch over wine loving friends. Lots of fresh grapes and tannic vinous qualities along with funky yet restrained brett. Perennial seems to be dialing in their bottle program as this is the first sour of theirs I've had that approaching how much I've liked their stuff on draft.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a tulip glass, there was a thin layer of white foam that faded after a couple minutes, leaving behind a broken surface skim and minimal collar of lacing. Color is a deep saturated russet reddish-orange. A ring of stray bubbles remains in the glass.

Funky and acidic aroma, Brett comes through with some farmy notes, as well as wet wood, acidic fruit. Barrel character lends some complexity, vanilla and woody aromas.

Pleasantly tart and rounded, lingering fruity vinous notes, moderate acidity that is balanced well by a tiny bit of sweetness upfront and dry tannic notes in the finish. Cherry pit and almond, tart and dry. Medium bodied and spritzy, creamy and slightly vinous. Stylistically it resembles a Flanders Oud Bruin.
