22oz bottle poured into a Jackie O's snifter.

A: Rich honey color with a thin bone-white head that quickly dissipates into a faint collar.
S: Slight aroma of grape must and tartness with elements of peaches/apricots and a subtle note of wood/tannins/earth.
T: Complex fruit character with elements of peach/tangerine/pineapple/apricot, musty undertone with some tannins/earth, subtle oak/vanilla notes.
M: Nicely carbonated to pop on the tongue and spread the flavor over the palate. Medium bodied and well attenuated.
O: This is a great sour but not overly acidic; very complex and flavorful, definitely not one-dimensional.

Color is apricot-orange, with minimal film on top.

Strongly acetic aroma of apricot, tangerine, and lemon with a little barn funk.

It is much lighter and more balanced in taste, offering one of the most drinkable, tart grapefruit-like drinks I've had. I'm also getting a little lemon, and a soft oak presence.

Feel is very pillowy soft with an ultra frothy body which is quite an achievement for these flavor profiles.
