3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375mL bottle, sent from Gregg657 (thanks a lot, Pete), pours a cloudy dark amber / mahogany with a tiny quickly-dissipating head. Nose is super pungent, full of rich juicy raspberries, light tartness, moderate funk, and very light acidity. Flavour is super tart and fruity, much more tart than the nose suggests, with loads of mouth-puckering raspberries, moderate funk, some vinegary-ness, and medium acidity. Not as funky or barnyardy as the Coolship Cerise, but really well-structured. Finishes dry, tart and acidic. Excellent stuff.

Bottle courtesy of Jay. Pours a deep ruby red body with thin off-white/pink lacing. Aroma is super tart raspberries and funk. Great nose overall. Mouthfeel is soft and light with notes of tart raspberries, funk, delicate sourness and additional fruits. Pretty straightforward with the raspberry character, but I’m not complaining.
