hawthorne00 (3416) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2016
750ml bottle. Unclear sunset amber with a few wisps of white head that are soon gone. Aroma: shame I can read the fruit blend, but it’s obviously cherries and something else - I guess the blackberries fatten and add bracken, the goosegogs acidity and a mellow juiciness. But neither are obvious (not any any means a criticism). And after a while nor are the cherries. Spicy funk, almonds and a lovely tired woodiness. Slight feral green twiggy/ shoe polish note that is OK but suggests problems to come (wrongly, it turns out). A fair bit of body. Low carbonation. Lovely brooding autumnal flavours with damp hay, decaying wood, mellow berries; perked up by zingy gooseberry acidity, ripe cherries, spices. Finish is long and fades towards gentle fruit that you almost forget how punchily sour it starts. Very beautiful.

750 shared by Marcus. Pours hazy orange/cherry mix with little if any head. Aroma is rathe sour mixed fruit. Med body. Flavor is smooth, mildly sour mixed fruit, but the cherry stands out of the mix. With time the sour cherry predominates. Very good stuff indeed.
