Not for me. Quite orange in the glass, pretty oxidized, there's a proper backbone to it, and a dry tart finish, but overall it's very flat and two dimensional to me. Not dissimilar to a really good cider. Maybe I have a bad bottle.

decanted this young bottle in a quart container and drank out of pint glasses in a hong kong style restaurant. warm breezy tide pool on the nose with some ripe apricot skin. patina'd brassy color, like a belgian beer. what fun.
