Reviewing from Notes. This whale , for me at least, was shared with me by a generous friend and new to trading techster82. It was his first sour and first beer trade.
A nice introduction to both Id say..
Batch001X4 - 750ml Caged and Corked.
A -Dark and Deep Red, Almost brown and fairly opaque. Very little head if any.
S - Lots of sourness, dark and sweet candy. I pick up some new fruit and slight oak as well.
T - Just amazing. I not completely versed in how these tend to age but I find the sourness fades a bit and the fruit becomes more evident. The currants, fig, and candy notes were outstanding and really stood up the brett/lacto nicely. The oak tends to develop nicely and become more prevalent with aging. It was only a bit but I felt like the oak was there on the finish. I was surprised it had any left but the carbonation was perfect.
M - Perfect. The carbonation wasn't low but just the way I prefer for this style.
What a great vintage and an even better way to share with friends. Thanks techster82
