neongolden (504) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2014
(330 ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Nov 14 2014) Pours a clear light red with orangish highlights and a small off white head that disappeared without lace. Aroma quite rose wine like, some fruity red currant as expected, tart, little bit of kinda funky oaky character. Flavour was wine like, fairly acidic and sour/tart with red currant, citrus juice, light vinegar, some oak, a hint of sweetness to the fruit but otherwise tart leading to dry on the finish, bit of berry skin, more wood, a little funk in the aftertaste. Light body with crisp, fairly high carbonation. Not the most complex sour and highlights red currant as expected, but it is bright, flavourful, and fairly refreshing if acidic.

tom10101 (3010) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle (375 ml). Meininger tasting. Transluscent pinkish-red with with a medium immediatly vanishing off-white head and no lacing. Aroma is quite winey with currants and acidic notes. Taste is quite acidic with currants/red berries, oak, winey and lemony. Light body. Prickly carbonation. Acidic finish. Not the most complex from the series, but quite refreshing. A tad too acidic for my liking,
