Community Tasting Note

    January 29, 2011 - Bretty and not very good. I know past bottles have been very good, so I'll chalk this one up to bad storage due to Havens bankruptcy. Hope other bottles are better.

    1/29/11, 1:01 PM - I have a few bottles of this left myself and the amount of brett varies a bit bottle to bottle, but it's almost always present. I have noticed that it seems to subside with exposure to air. I opened one of these the other night and I employed my Vinturi, and I have to say that significantly reduced (really, virtually eliminated) the brett. If you have a chance to try this, I'd certainly be curious to know your experience. That is, assuming you have additional bottles available for such experimentation!
