January 2007 Vintage 750ML...
Pours a tall but airy head filled with bubbles so large you can hear the head dissipate. A nice golden dark peach color with a small bit of head retention that leaves no trace.
Scents are difficult to distinguish as it's light on the nose.. sour berries and tangy candies come through as it comes up to room temperature.
I take a sip and the carbonation is too intense to get a good idea what as to what i'm tasting.. An anise seed flavor attacks then gives way to a barn back. I let it sit for a few minutes then go at it again hoping for more. I'm met with a slightly more musty version of the first experience, with more of a roasted malt flavor.
Mouthfeel on this is disappointing, the carb is too strong and makes it difficult to pinpoint what flavors i'm tasting.
It's drinkable, but not in the best way, especially considering the price of a bottle.

Aroma- A fruity sour wine aroma dominates the nose, with notes of spicy and musty brett.
Mouth feel- Dry on the tongue and lite in body feels like lots of carbonation.
Appearance- Hazy Light auburn in color with a hint of red. Off white head.
Taste- Dry fruity start lots of cherry other pit fruits (plum) with a tart sour cherry finish. No hop flavor and it was hard to taste much else over the tartness of the beer. If you didn't get it in the first couple sips your taste buds kinda only get the tart flavor.
This beer is good a glass is really nice and refreshing but not something I would have a lot and get drunk off of.
Serving type: on-tap
