Intro: A 375ml bottle, with no bottled on or best before date. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden orange colour with a one finger white head that had good retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Light cherry candy, cherry skin, hay, wood, funk.
Taste: Tart, lightly sour, funk, barnyard, oak, with only very slight hints of cherries.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: There is some fruitiness, but cherry flavours and even in the aroma were definitely lacking.
