Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle, bottled on 15th October 2015. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A hazy grapefruit pinkish orange colour with a thin white head that dissipated fairly quickly to a ring around the glass, and left only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Sweet and tart cherry, lightly candied, oak, light funk, with a touch of citrusy lemon zest.
Taste: Sour, tart, cherry, lemon, oak, with light funk notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Enjoyable cherry and citrus balance that isn’t overwhelmingly fruity, but just enough to complement the base Saison.
