Central Waters Exodus (2011)

Poured from a 1 pint 9.36 oz bottle into a CBS snifter. Served slightly chilled.

A) Foggy orange initially, although the clarity improves gradually and the color darkens a bit. Basically no head on this. No lacing...

S) This is a musty dank, funky aroma, with a hint of cherry and wood. Good and sour...

T) Sour flavors nip at the tip of your tongue, and do not let up. Very earthy/woody flavors. The fruit flavor from the cherry is tart as well. This is some funky stuff...

M) Medium bodied with mild carbonation. This is lip smacking and mouth watering. Bit of a dry finish...

O) My goodness... This kept my mouth watering for minutes after each sip. Like it was tickling the inside of my mouth... I'd be interested to try this fresh, but I have to say I'm glad I had the restraint to age this, because it was pretty damn good.

Leaves a little to be desired. Quickly dissipating fizzy head on a murky orange-pink body.

Nose is heavenly. Tart citrus with a splash of fruit punch.

Taste follows. Tart, 7 out of 10, mild vinegar. Mouth puckering for sure. Somewhat simple.

Low carbonation, medium mouthfeel.

Solid if not one-noted. Tame apricot mouthwatering juice. That's what this should have called it. Thanks TATURBO.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - No head on a clear reddish brown body. Lifeless.

Smell - Chardonnay bomb. Intense barrel character. Vanilla and oak permeate. Caramel. Not really any acidity.

Taste - Much more sour here, but not intense. Strong white wine again. Caramel and vanilla. Follows the nose, but the cherries come out in the end. The back end dries out and leaves diacetyl and white wine.

Mouthfeel - Dry, medium bodied. Easy to drink. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Better than I expected. Out of proportion on many flavors, like the wine barrel.
