Jan. 2007 vintage.
Appearance: Pours hazy amber. Nice moderate head with slow dissipation that leaves behind a thin layer of head. Moderate lacing.
Smell: Oak, white wine, orange peels. Wild yeast in the background.
Taste: The oak and wine are the main guests at the party. This is pretty sour and dry but there's something off with the sourness in my opinion. There's a little funk/horse blanket but it's not working with one of the other flavors. It may be the latent sourness of the wine.. kind of like a bottle of white wine that's been open for a little too long. The after taste is stale sourness that sticks to the back and sides of my tongue.
Mouthfeel: Sharp carbonation with a thin to mildly buttery mouthfeel.
Ddrinkability: I'm having a hard time with this one. The old wine flavors don't really invite me to take another sip.

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Dated October 2013. Cork hit the ceiling, but no gushing.
A: Amber/rose-colored body with good clarity. Scant white head that rapidly disappears. Light lacing.
S: Light brett with vinous quality. Grapes and more subdued stone fruit. Mild earth.
T: Tart initially with a dry, even-handed Brett character shortly thereafter. There is the presence of red wine and associated tannins. Mostly dry finish. Lightly hopped. Alcohol presence is average for the ABV. Tartness lingers in the aftertaste.
M: Light-to-moderate carbonation with a fairly light body. Open on the palate.
O: Solid brew, if a bit less impressive than expected. Probably should have sat on this one a bit longer. I was hoping for a bit more complexity, but fans of wine barrel aging and brettanomyces will enjoy this.
