Intro: A 375ml bottle at the brewery, brewed on 5th March 2013, bottled on 26th May 2016 and poured into a Cantillon tasting glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear copper orange colour with pretty much no head and sparse lacing.
Aroma: Funky, sour, grapefruit, lemon, leather and oak.
Taste: Funky, barnyard, sour, caramel, bitter melon bitterness, grapefruit, lemon and oak.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with no carbonation.
Overall: This was nice and easy to drink and I preferred it over the Bruocsella Grand Cru. I’ve yet to try Iris though, so can’t compare it to that yet.
