Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle at the brewery, with no clear bottled on or best before date, but I think it would be from Season 18/19. Poured into a Cantillon stemmed tasting glass.
Appearance: A very nice clear ruby cherry red colour with a half finger pinkish head that had pretty good retention and that eventually settled to a ring around the glass with some decent spotty lacing.
Aroma: Raspberry, cherry, jammy, vanilla and berry jello.
Taste: Tastes like you’d expect from the aroma, but almost ice cream like because of the vanilla. Lots of raspberry, cherry, jammy, berry jello and vanilla with a touch of oak.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: Wow, near perfect in my opinion. Must try if you have the opportunity to try this. Just great jammy and jello fruitiness with lots of raspberry, cherry and vanilla.
