Intro: A 375ml bottle, 2018 vintage, bottled on 4th January 2018. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A dark brown cola colour with a two finger dark tanned head that had decent retention and left some stringy lacing.

Taste: Pretty much what you would expect from the aroma, sour, tart, blackcurrant, Ribena, light roast, cocoa, chocolate and coffee.

Intro: A 750ml bottle, 2016 vintage, bottled on 10th October 2016. Poured into a Cantillon gueuze glass.
Appearance: Very lightly cloudy, still see through, golden blonde colour with a just under two finger white head that dissipated quickly to nothing and left behind no lacing.
Aroma: Funky, tart, grape, apple and hay, with hints of oak, vanilla and lemon.
Taste: Funky, barnyard, grape, white grape, apricots, lemon and hay.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.
