My beeradvocate.com rating: 4.62
My ratebeer.com rating: 4.5

Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle, 2021 vintage, bottled on 15th September 2021. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen Zenne stemmed glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden orange colour with a one finger white head that had pretty good retention, while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Tart, sweet, jammy, apricot, peach, marmalade.
Taste: Sharp, sour, tart, apricot, peach, dried stone fruit, oak, with light white wine notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: My first thought was that I absolutely loved the aroma, but the flavour was overly sharp and acidic. It quickly grew on me though, and by the time I poured a second glass, I really enjoyed the flavours, and found it refreshing.

Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle, 2021 vintage, bottled on 29th September 2021. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A slightly hazy golden colour, with an almost two finger white head that had decent retention, while eventually settling to a ring around the glass, and leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Funky, citrus, lemon zest, rhubarb, and a touch earthy and leafy.
Taste: Tart, lightly sour, funky, light sweetness, rhubarb, with notes of stone fruit.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Although the rhubarb flavours were a bit light, the base and everything else seemed balanced and was enjoyable.
