Intro: A 375ml corked, capped and paper wrapped bottle, 2015 vintage, with a best before end date of January 2020. Poured into a Cantillon ballon glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear golden copper colour with no head and no lacing.
Aroma: Funk, wood and mineral with lots of citrus orange, sour yuzu and lemon.
Taste: Tart and very sour yuzu plus lemon peel, with a hint of wood and vinegar.
Mouthfeel: Acidic, light to medium bodied with light to no carbonation.
Overall: It started out kind of rough for me, but definitely got better the more I drank it and tasted better than its aroma. Its worth a try if you enjoy sour and/or lambic beer. Love the artwork though!
