Intro: A 375ml bottle, 2015 vintage, bottled in March 2016, and with a notched best before date of March 2020. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy golden orange colour with a big just over two finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly to a thin layer, but left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Sour, tart, oak, funk, white grape, blackcurrant, hint of lemon rind.
Taste: Sour, oak, straw, funk, white grape, blackberry, with only a hint of blackcurrant and lemon.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: I enjoyed this the more I drank it. It was balanced and tasty although the blackcurrant was perhaps a little light and the carbonation too soft.
