Medium golden hue with just a little carbonated head, which dissipates quickly but leaves a thin, incessant lacing. Aroma begins with a big waft of lacto - vinegar, but that airs put rather quickly, revealing lots of earthy tannins, cork, light wood & fruit rind (melon, maybe a little apple). Tongue is fantastic, very well balanced on the tart / sour scale (there is a gentle tart sting upfront, and a sour kiss on the end that is the perfect amount) with notes of champagne yeast, stonefruit must and maybe a little concord paired with the expected cider notes. Body is dry & crisp as per the style. Nose was a little much at first, but it's certainly a great representation of the style & way easier to find than some of the vaunted Cantillons
