Intro: A corked and caged 375ml bottle, with a best before date of September 2020. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A very lightly hazy orange colour with a half finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some decent lacing.
Aroma: Light funk, brett, peach, apricot, honey, pineapple, mandarin zest and a touch floral.
Taste: Funky, brett, floral, light sweetness, apricot, white pepper.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: The carbonation was an issue here, but I also read many instances even up to early 2018 where the carbonation was lost. However, despite this, there was definitely some interesting aroma and flavours coming through.
