750 ml bottle with many thanks to littlebreeze and her ever-so-generous husband!

pours a urine yellow wiht a white head that goes away almost instantly. has champagne like bubbles coming up from the bottom but they dont hold in a head on the top at all. would look much nicer if they held the head.

smell was sour, woody, brett funk a little but not overwhelming, and a white grape skin scent

taste is sour with a white grape mid palate flavor, some subtle oak, tangy white grape, unripe pear, and some brett funk, although I tend to feel it is a little underdeveloped funkiness at this point. finishes with a slightly tart white wine flavor. overall a little sweetness balances well.

lots of carbonation but no head. it finishes leaving a coating on the back of my tongue which makes me want to clear my throat. If i had it with food I am sure this would be no issue.

Easy to drink, had no problem finishing off the entire 750 in about an hour. would pair great with a garlic and olive oil pasta, or a light seafood dish or fish. I would rate it a 5 for drinkability if it was readily available as that is the only draw back in drinkability IMO.

Dont mortgage the house, but seek this one out if you can.
