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

Hazy peach-orange colored body, thin, quickly receding off-white head, a few traces of lacing. Nose is dry, with semi-tart cherries and a well developed bretty/woody profile that has a dense musty component. Flavors are well-hinted at by the nose, with delicate cherries, wood, earth, minerality, and zesty yeast notes. Medium to light bodied, incredibly dry and refreshing, clean, succinct finish. Impressive.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #34 of 204.

Appearance - Gushed on opening. Poured with a decent white head. Cloudy orange.

Smell - Fruity and musty. Slight acidity to it. Wouldn't pick out cherry if I didn't know it was there. Sweet malt aroma.

Taste - A little more tartness here. Grainy malt is the first flavor, strangely. Definitely more cherry here. Musty wine flavor lingers. Sweet malt is too strong for my tastes.

Mouthfeel - Not quite crisp, but nicely tart. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Nice flavors but none of the flavors I want to come out more manage to overpower the malt.
