Bottle, 75cl. A finger-thick, dense, off-white head forms over an unclear, orange-golden body. There’s some berry notes in the else fruity and lightly funky aroma. Berries, lemon notes, fruityness and some funk and sourness in the flavor. Some tropical fruit hints. Dry and quite carbonated. Tropical fruits and berries in the finish. A nice one indeed, lacking a bit on complexity. 130216
