Intro: A 660ml bottle with a notched best before date of January 2020. One-off edition for the Beerseeker Beerclub 2018. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Very lively moderate gusher, as it wanted to explode out as soon as the cap popped off. A hazy amber orange colour with an one finger off white head that had good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malt, fruity, grape, citrus peel, brett, oak and light smoke.
Taste: Sweet and sour, citrusy, orange peel, lemon, oak, earthy, along with some light smoke and leather. Light bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: Interesting mix of sweet, sour, smoky and bitter along with citrus fruity notes.
