Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle. Bottled in November 2019. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: A nice slightly hazy ruby cherry red colour, with a thin white head that dissipated quickly to a ring around the glass, while leaving some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Light funk, woody, blackberry, blueberry, grape skin, lemon zest, with notes of vanilla.
Taste: Lightly sour, tart, blackberry, blueberry, green vines, lemon zest, with maybe a hint of vanilla.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: The blend sounded great and like it would go together well. It drank quite good, but it didn’t have much complexity, almost just like fruit juice, and lacked any funk and noticeable vanilla.

Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle. Bottled in March 2022. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.

Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle. Bottled in March 2022. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: A very nice lightly hazy ruby red colour with a just over one finger white head that had pretty good retention, while leaving some nice lacing.

Taste: Sour, tart, fruity, cherry, raspberry, grape skin, lemon juice, with a slight vinegary bite.
