Fin (7408) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, nr Gent, Belgie, purchased Feb’ 2014 consumed at mums, Worcester, Saturday 5th April 2014 Pours murky brown with off-white head. A light sour fruity (plum skins) flavour with some spiciness. Quite thick mouthfeel, but soft. This tastes quite strong, very warming mmhhh....in fact I do not believe for one minute that this is 4.5%, no way at all, total rubbish. There is a lasting bitter, fruity tang. Really twangy some further heat (from pepper maybe?) a little bittersweet orange, good in fact really good, but I utterly and totally dispute the abv. A7 A3 T7 P4 Ov16 3.7
