Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 21st October 2020, with a best before date of 21st July 2021. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A very nice beetroot purple reddish colour with a just over one finger purple pinkish head that dissipated fairly quickly, and left only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Tart, fruity, juicy, blackcurrant and blueberries.
Taste: Tart, lightly sour, mixed berries creamsicle, blackcurrant, blueberry, blackberry, jammy.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium to full bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: Very enjoyable with lots of blackcurrant and blueberry flavours. Not sure I get much oolong tea or DIPA elements, but the fruit is front and center that it probably covers it.
