Intro: A 330ml bottle, bottled in August 2016, and a best before date of 16th August 2021. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A hazy reddish orange colour with a one finger white head that had decent retention but left no lacing.
Aroma: Tart, mixed berries especially raspberry, and light leathery brett.
Taste: Lightly sour, touches of rhubarb and raspberry with a minerally, leathery, funky finish.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Given the nice strong fruity aromas, I was surprised at how weak the fruit was showing in the taste. It just felt like it was missing a little something.
