Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy amber copper colour with a two finger beige head that had decent retention while leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma: Fruity berries, a strong herbal kick, apple, damp wood, and black pepper.
Taste: Apple peel, herbal bitterness, straw, hay, earthy, orange pith, black pepper.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: In one word, ‘strange’. Aroma was strange but it definitely grew on me. Taste was weird, but while it improved slightly with more sips, it didn’t improve enough for me to enjoy.
