I was very excited to open this bottle. It poured a pretty attractive pale pink, with a little bit of fizzy head. The smell was almost exactly like white wine. If someone had told me it was a glass of Sauvignon blanc, I would have believed them. I thought this was strange, but I was intrigued.

Unfortunately, the taste was very disappointing. There was actually very little in the way of flavor, like someone had mixed a cheap white wine with some sparkling water. Absolutely no complexity and a bad aftertaste.

I typically like Wicked Weed, but most of this bottle went down the drain.

Poured from 500 ml bottle into snifter.

A: Pours a red tinted golden yellow with one finger head that dissipates immediately with little to no lacing.

S: Sour cherries, passion fruit, and lemon. Reminds me a little of some white wines.

T: White wine, brett yeast, lemon, and cherries.

M: Light body and slightly sour finish.

O: Not my normal style, but enjoyable.
