4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 375ml. Aged 18 months piror to tasting. Poured dark muddy blood with a small, pink, frothy head which was mostly lasting. Aroma had almost perfume like characteristics with notes of roses, violets, crushed raspberries, sour cherries, wild yeast and salt water. Flavor was extremely tart with a massive acidic bite; gooseberry skins, sour cherries, red wine vinegar and light notes of oysters & salty brine. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry/spritzig mouthfeel, ever-so slightly syrupy texture and a superb length finish. Amazingly delicate yet infinitely complex.

375 ml bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a Duvel tulip. Slightly hazy red with a big pink head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving behind a nice layer of pink film throughout. Big aromas of vinegar, sour cherry & plum. Very fine carbonation with a dry mouthfeel. The vinegar becomes more pronounced as it warms up. Tart on the palate. An absolute classic!
