Intro: A 375ml bottle with a best before date of 27th June 2027. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A very nice cloudy dark purple, beetroot like colour with a big just over two finger purple head that had decent retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart, barnyard funk, horse blanket, oak, lemon and only light blueberries in the background.
Taste: Tart, sour, lemon, oak, funk and blueberry.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was ok, but after I’ve tried Spontantripleblueberry, it seems I just can’t go back as I feel that the blueberries in this just isn’t strong enough, especially in the aroma. Instead, the lemon and funk dominate the blueberry to the point that it doesn’t really come through.
