look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

375mL bottle into tulip. bottled on 09.14.12.

A: clear. beautiful bright mahogany brown hue. slightly off-white head has fantastic retention. lacing however is non-existent.

S: lactic acid. I can feel the acid burn in my nose. impressive. lots of barn. fruity, red grapes in particular.

T: super vinous, tart, acidic. finish has plenty of unfertmented sugars that try to sweeten this massive sour bomb out, with limited success. some dark fruit flavors. little bit of ethanol. after the acid dissipates, there is a slight cereal linger, which is a little surprising seeing as the b

M: a lively carb on a medium/full body. I say medium just cause of how much it has dried out, however knocks you as a 10%'er though.

D: a nice treat of a wild here. so much acidity, the bacteria really went nuts on all this sugar producing vinous tart flavors and aromas by the boatload. would have been nice to have an aged version to do a side-by-side. maybe next time.
