Intro: A 375ml bottle, bottled in December 2015. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Aroma: Lightly tart, blueberry skin, lemon, blackcurrant, slightly herbal, with notes of oak and funk.
Taste: Sour, tart, blueberry, blueberry skin, lemon, blackcurrant, oak, funk, with light leather.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Enjoyable blueberry and blackcurrant flavours, with good oak and funk.
