Intro: A 375ml corked and caged bottle. The cork has the words Diam EX 2016, and the number 09 on it, which I think I’ve worked out to be Batch E, bottled in September 2015. Poured into a Cantillon ballon glass.
Appearance: A clear dark pinkish red colour with a very thin pink head that dissipates quickly while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Raspberry jam with perhaps hints of grape juice.
Taste: Sour raspberries and grape juice to begin, followed by sweet-ish berries with hints of wood.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Refreshing and nice to drink. Good balance between sour and sweet.
