Intro: A 750ml bottle at the brewery, 2017 vintage. Poured into a Cantillon taster glass.
Appearance: A clear ruby purple red colour, with a one finger pinkish head that dissipated fairly quickly and left sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Lightly tart, red wine, grape and strawberries.
Taste: Lightly sour and tart, lots of red wine qualities, grape, strawberry and mixed berries.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with low carbonation.
Overall: As close to red wine as I’ve ever tried in a beer. Good aromas and flavour.
