Intro: A 375ml bottle with a best before date of 27th January 2025. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A hazy copper orange colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly and left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Funky, sour, tart, unripe apple cider vinegar with hints of apricot.
Taste: Sour, tart, green apple and vinegar with hints of apricot and funk.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: The vinegar and sourness was overpowering and hid much of the funk and fruit.
