Stephen Rich's bottle

Murky brown, off white head, some lacing. Smell is funky, chocolate and nutty notes come through, black cherry, someone at the tasting mentioned "tennis ball can" and once that was pointed out I could certainly smell it, different but still good. Taste is funky, getting lots of yeast coming through, some of that "tennis ball" flavour. High carbonation, full body, good feel. I quite enjoyed this, very different from most wild's would try another vintage of this gladly.

jason and Stephen's bottle from Pelosi's recent trip. Big alcohol, I thought this a lot higher than stated. Strange aromas, I cannot top Stephen's "open tennis balls can" except that there was a little fumigation in there to me. Unfilteed and tan colours, real wild flavours.

Bottle shared by Steve, 750ml into a tulip.

Pours a mahogany-brown, with a some reddish highlights in the body; cream coloured head. Nose is quite stinky and strange, a fresh 'tennis ball out of the can' funk (thanks to Steve for hitting the nail on the head with that comment), some chocolate, black cherry and some lactic notes. Hmm. More of this 'tennis ball' character on the palate, general funk, some cherry again and mild lactic notes. Interesting and challenging to both the nose and palate; somewhat difficult to get through unfortunately despite the 'complexity' (is it?). Medium high carbonation, and quite sour on the whole without being overtly puckering.
