Intro: A 375ml bottle with a best before date of 21st September 2027. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A murky dark orange brown colour with a two finger beige head that dissipated fairly quickly, but left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Tart, lightly sweet and sour, strawberry yoghurt, lightly lactic, peachy and a touch floral.
Taste: Tart, peach, oak, yoghurt with a hint of funk and vinegar.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Very different to all others in the Spontan lineup with its lactic and yoghurty notes and also a whole lot less funky. I’m not sure what rosehip is supposed to smell or taste like, but this beer was pretty nice.
