Intro: A 375ml bottle, 2015 vintage as per the date on the back label. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku.
Appearance: A hazy orange-red colour with a less than two finger off white head that dissipated fairly quickly and left only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Tart cherries and oak with hints of lemon and funk.
Taste: Tart and sour cherries with a touch of oak and marzipan almond-like flavours on the front end. The finish has a nice lemon and vinegary sourness.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: A nice and refreshing Wild Ale with great tart cherry notes.
