Intro: A 375ml bottle with a best before date of 17th April 2024. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A murky plum purple red colour with a one finger off white head that had decent retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Juicy, raspberry, raspberry jam, lightly vinous with hints of red wine.
Taste: Sour, tart, raspberry, lemon, funk, vinous, red wine vinegar with hints of oak.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Quite nice, especially the jammy aromas. Taste wasn’t quite as jammy and juicy as the aroma, but still nice and easy to drink.
