Intro: A 500ml can, with a best before date of 14th November 2020. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A hazy murky dark beetroot purplish red colour with a one finger pinkish head that had good retention and left lots of nice lacing.

Taste: Sweet, raspberry jam, maple, pancake, vanilla, with a sour, tart, raspberry and lightly salty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
