Intro: A 375ml bottle with a best before date of 4th February 2026. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A murky rusty light orange brown colour with a one and a half finger white head that had decent retention and left only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Funk, farmhouse, pear and lemon.
Taste: Sour, funk, farmhouse, hay, lemon and pear.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Not in my favourites among the Spontan lineup, but still quite nice and I was pleasantly surprised at how well the pear came through.
