Intro: A 375ml corked and capped bottle, bottled on 1st September 2021. Poured into a red wine glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark golden orange colour with a thin white head that dissipated fairly quickly, while leaving some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Mint, tarragon, acetone, nail varnish, with notes of oak.
Taste: Sweet and sour, mint, tarragon, oak, with a touch of vinegar.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: An interesting use of herbs, as the mint and tarragon come through nicely. However, I’m not sure why, but there was a strong acetone/nail varnish aroma that was quite overpowering and definitely a bit distracting from the rest of the beer.
