Intro: A 12.7 fl.oz. bottle bottled in April 2016 (notched in label) and poured into a Cantillon ballon glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear cherry red colour with an orange pinkish hue, with no head and no lacing.
Aroma: Raspberry, strawberry, berry gummy candies, grape jelly and some light funkiness.
Taste: Sour, extremely sour, overly and harsh acidity, vinegar, funkiness and light fruity raspberry that is largely hidden in the background.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, no carbonation and a short but sharp harsh acidic burn.
Overall: It smells great but beer with no carbonation is not my thing. In addition, it was harsh and overly acidic such that it was almost undrinkable.
