4.45/5  rDev +3.2%

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.

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.
