Decided to break out the batch of colonche I started in early December, to take to Mike's birthday party. There was a layer of green and white mold on top, that came off easily like a pancake. Then I tried to remove the fruit, which typically floats on top while the liquid stays on the bottom. It didn't work that way this time. The fruit was spongy and retained most of the liquid. I didn't even fill a standard wine bottle with what was left after I poured it through a funnel lined with cheesecloth. And I could be mistaken but I sense a moldy aftertaste to the beverage. I'm not even sure it's wine, can't taste any alcohol.
