Intro: A 375ml corked and caged bottle, blend 2, with a best before date of February 2029. Poured into a Mikkeller Baghaven Zalto Bordeaux stemmed glass.
Appearance: A hazy ruby red colour with a two fingered pinkish head that dissipated fairly quickly, while leaving only sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Tart, jammy, raspberry, with slight funk.
Taste: Sour, tart, jammy, raspberry, redcurrants, hay, lightly funky, with notes of oak.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Really enjoyed the aroma and flavours here with intense jammy raspberry leading the way.
