Intro: A 750ml bottle, 2015 vintage, bottled on 20th May 2015. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A cloudy dark golden orange colour with a big three finger white head that had decent retention while leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart and sour, raspberry, wheat, barnyard funk, oak with hints of lime.
Taste: Sour, tart, raspberry, cranberry-apple, wheat, lemon-lime and Belgian yeast with only a hint of oak and funk.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was ok, but not quite as much raspberry as I hoped for. I was surprised by the higher than expected ABV though, as the alcohol was well hidden.
