Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle, bottled on 23rd August 2021, with a best before date of 23rd August 2031. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A very nice pinkish orange colour with a just over one finger white head that had good retention and eventually settled to a thin cap, while leaving nice lacing.
Aroma: Sweet and tart cherry, candied grapefruit, light funk, with a touch of almond and oak.
Taste: Tart, funky, sour candy cherry, candied grapefruit, with notes of lemon and oak.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, light bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: Really refreshing with a good balance of sweet, sour and funk. Especially great on a hot summer day.
