Intro: A 750ml bottle, 2017 vintage, poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: A cloudy dark orange colour with a one finger white head that had pretty good retention, and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Funky, brett, lime juice, green apple, white wine grapes, cucumber, oak, damp wood, hay, vanilla.
Taste: Lightly sour, light funk, lime juice, lemon, white wine grapes, oak, with light notes of yellow stone fruits and apple cider vinegar.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with light to moderate carbonation.
Overall: Aroma and flavours were quite different from each other, but it was enjoyable to drink. Was hoping for more of the funk to infiltrate into the flavour though.
