Intro: A 1 pint 9.4 fl. oz. bottle with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A cloudy straw yellow colour with an almost two finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly to a ring around the glass while leaving only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Candied and tart, almost like sour peach gummy rings.
Taste: Tart, sour, apricot, peach, candied, oak and some light funk.
Mouthfeel: Acidic, light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Very nice with those sour fruit gummy candy aroma and flavours. A lot more sour in the taste than the aroma suggests, but also not a lot of funkiness.
