3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared in London for my farewell drinks. Picked this one up at Kris Wines I think. Pours clearish mahogany with a small beige head. Nose is plenty of ripe berries with some tartiness as you’d expect, slightly acidic, grapefruit, zesty and milk chocolate. Lots going on but balanced decently. Taste is like a sour Pinot Noir. Think black cherries, tarty blueberry, dusty chocolate, raisins and some bretty tang. A nice red wine finish with some coconut and spice in there. A lot happening but works quite well. Solid drop

Would like to try it fresh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Craft Bere Co., London.

Dark red colour with very small head. Aroma is sour with berries, some yeast and spices also. Flavour is sour berries, spices, earth and malts. Sour palate and somewhat exciting, but the alcohol comes through a bit too much.
