Poured into chalice style glass, from bottle, solid pop from cork

Appearance: straw yellow, very effervescent with 1&1/2 finger head.
Aroma: funk and cork
Taste: it seems like I could taste cork very tart, long lasting background mustiness, 8% alcohol barely noticeable.

375 ml poured into a snifter. 2007 Vintage. Bottled 10-09-2010 (subtracted 20 years from best by date per website)

A: Pours a mostly opaque cloudy amber with a 1 finger that is not very compact and quick to dissipate. Lots of visible carbonation shooting to the surface. Head finishes as just a ring around the outside of the glass.

S: A very tart and sour fruitiness with a complimenting oak backing. A bit of funk and cellar in there. The fruit comes through as a blend of berries and cherries.

T: This one is certainly on the tart side of the spectrum. Intense at first any other flavor is undeserniable. After a second or two a fruitiness comes out. Oak notes are solid in the middle as well. A lambic yeast finish. I'm always a fan of pouring in the yeast for the last bit of the glass but would recommend skipping that on this vintage.

M: Light to medium body with great carbonation. Mouth puckering with its sour qualities. Any alcohol is lost in the tartness. Just a bit of stickiness upon finish.

Overall I will certainly be picking up a few more of these. About as far on the tart side as I would think sours can get. A little lacking in some complexity with fruitiness and whatnot but nonetheless a must try for anyone seeking the extreme.
