750ml cork and cage bottle. Served in a snifter glass.

Pours a light orange-yellow body, very effervescent two finger white head that quickly settles down into a medium thickness film, touch of lacing. Smells of persimmon flesh, heavy acetic and lactic acidity, oak, and I suppose a little bit of peppery funk. Persimmons come out nicely here. Flavour is more dominated by the heavy acidity which makes my salivary glands shudder. Oak, a touch of persimmon. A really nice palate cleanser, I'll say that much, and actually reasonably enjoyable to drink if you can tolerate the acidity. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, refreshing on both the palate and the state of mind.
