Intro: A 750ml bottle, with a best before date of 1st November 2020. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden dark orange colour with a big three finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly but left lots of lacing.
Aroma: Sour, lemon peel, honey, bready malt, farmhouse funk, with notes of peach and apricot on the finish.
Taste: Light to moderate sweet and sour, bready, lemon peel and zest, farmhouse notes, with a touch of pepper spice.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate but spritzy carbonation.
Overall: Not sure I’m getting much of the Bordeaux barrel, but still enjoyable.
