Glassware: Stemmed tulip.
Appearance: Kind of a rosy pink colour with a light orange fused through. The pour doesn’t muster up much head, with it quickly receding to the rim and leaving spotty lace as we go.
Aroma: There’s plenty happening that’s for sure, we can already tell there’s good depth to it. There’s a lovely vinous acidity, grape skins, lemon/lime, musk, wood chip, Angostura bitters, light florals, rosewater and pink peppercorns. Maybe just a flutter of raspberry and or cherry along with a soft oak tannin.
Flavour: Right on the money! (pun intended). Sour citrus, red grapes, subtle oak chips and cherries/berries to the fore. There’s a short spike of lacto acidity which softens in to the sweetness of Angostura bitters and subtle rosewater, finishing on a tangy funk that endures nicely.
Mouthfeel: Somewhat flat but it’s kept alive by a medium pucker and a vibrant acidity. There’s a decent weight to it as well…not enough to make it full bodied but there’s certainly some density.
Overall: Really enjoying what these guys are putting out…top quality sours with a catchy name and eye catching labels. I mean they’re intricate AF! P.s love the addition of the suggested track! A bit of ODB during the review is a nice touch! Brilliant drop.
