Intro: A 750ml bottle at the brewery. 2013 sticker, bottled on 3rd April 2016. Poured into a Cantillon tasting glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear dark ruby colour with a three finger dark pink head that had decent retention and some sparse lacing. Looks so good.
Aroma: Fruity raspberry, strawberry and some light floral notes.
Taste: Sour, tart, raspberry, strawberry, oak, apple and light barnyard funk.
Mouthfeel: Dry, light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: So good. Such nice refreshing raspberries and strawberries. Could very well be my favourite fruit lambic! Must buy.
