Pours a deep brown with a slight ruby tint. No head to speak of.
Smells tart, followed by fruit; cherries and currants, with strong vinegar.
Taste definitely follows the nose, with strong fruitiness and vinegar tartness. Too much brett... Hints of cherries and currants, but mostly vinegar. Alcohol noticeable, but not strong at all.
Highly acidic feel, with some carbonation. Not too smooth, but that's a sour for you.
After all the hype, including the price, I was unimpressed. I was expecting an eye-opening sour experience, and I got what I consider an average experience. Maybe some more aging would have improved it; I don't know. Just underwhelming all around.
