Pours a dark amber with big booming fluffy head. Clear as well, and you can watch the bubbles generated with ease. Huge must on the nose. Great earthy flavor, with a granny apple vibe from the very slight tart giving way to a apple like sweetness. Clean finish. This isn't one of their massive sours, but I was impressed nonetheless.

I loved Mélange No. 3 and I think this one is even better. Oak and Chardonnay barrels are an awesome pair. Think in six months this will taste even better if that's possible.
