  • Bottle exploded upon opening the cork. Shot out so fast that it took me a minute or two to find the cork.

    Pours cloudy, floaties with a fine effervescents. Foam is huge, off white. Retention is quite good with the foam almost becoming meringue in nature. Lacing is sporadic and only mildly sticky.

    Aroma is dominated by tart fruits with an ever so light musk.

    Taste is once again fruit forward but I think berries are easy to make out. Green grapes with tart are there too. Warms a bit on the way down.

    Medium body with a lot of carbonation.

    Put off a bit by the exploding bottle and the alcohol makes this hard to really throw back. I think it could benefit from some age if the cork doesn't blow its stack first. Enjoy!
