Got this bottle from my bro-in-law for my birthday last year (June 2013) and have been cellaring for a year now. Decided to pop this open on an uneventful Monday night off. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip glass.
A - Reddish-brown, rusty and murky. Held my cell phone flashlight up to the glass and it is very opaque. Almost no light penetrates its rusty murkiness. Half-finger width head that quickly dissipates. Minor lacing.
S - Very funky lacto smell with a bit of white wine vinegar up front. Mild earthy and damp woody scents follow. A little tart cherry and lemon zest follow that.
T - Very strong lacto tartness. Sour cherry, lemon zest, grapefruit pith also rather dominant. Tartness lingers and finishes dry. The alcohol is very well masked. Taste of meyer lemon on the lips.
M - Again, that lacto-acidic bite. Quite puckering. Medium carbonation. Lip-wrinkling. A very bitter-sour aftertaste that reminds me of when I stuck a whole sour grapefruit slice in my mouth once.
O - Ranks in the top tier of the sours I've had. Aged a year very well. Very flavorful and more complex than I can describe half-drunk already. I wish I had another bottle to drink in the future...
