look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

a: Clear, golden apple juice color; pours with a short lived fizzy head.

s: Musty grape skins, apple cider, huge oaky tannins, funky yeast.

t: Kind of sweet up front, light sugar and grape juice. This is quickly overrun by a nice combination of bitter grape skin, oaky tannins, and funky yeast. Pretty dry overall.

m: Light bodied with short lived, aggressive carbonation.

o: Dry and tasty, I like it a lot.
