Intro: A 375ml bottle with a best before date of 10th August 2027. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy reddish purple colour with a two finger pinkish head that dissipated quickly but left only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Blackberry, tart, vinous, funk and oak.
Taste: Funky, sour, tart, vinous and lemon with only a touch of berries.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: Nice blackberry aromas which didn’t quite come through as much in the taste as I would have preferred, as the funk and sour lemon were a little overpowering.
