Intro: A 750ml bottle, bottled on 20th July 2021, with a best before date of 20th July 2026. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass. Brewed for BXL BeerFest 2021.
Appearance: A hazy pinkish orange colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Raspberry, candied raspberries, lime juice, rosé vinous.
Taste: Sweet and sour raspberry, grape, lime zest, rosé vinous.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: An interesting beer-wine hybrid. Very rosé wine and raspberry puree forward, while the brett seems rather muted.
