Intro: A 375ml bottle, with a best before date of 30th April 2025. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: A hazy rusty dark orange brown colour, with a thin white head that dissipated fairly quickly, while leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma: Funky, brett, damp wood, grape, tart berries, orange, with light caramel notes.
Taste: Malty, funky, brett, damp wood, plum, orange, mixed berries, pepper spice, with a bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: It’s been a while since I had the base beer, but my feeling is that it was better than this BA version, as this just didn’t fully work for me.
