Excellent. Tartness of the currants carries through nicely. Better add it comes towards room temperature.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375 ml. bottle procured from De Hopduvel in Gent & split with Kraddel + Kogymo. BBF 09/05/2021. Pours a hazy fox bordeaux amber with a shade of purple, colour is pretty hard to note in this one with almost instantly gone head. Head is/was pinkish/purple. Nose carries some pretty nice lambic & barn funk, lots of acidic lemon, tart lemons with some red grapes that could be identified as redcurrant but seems very unspecific with lots of musty red grape skins. Taste is tart lemon, lower funk than in the nose but still there, getting lots & lots of red grape skins, way more than red berries (could be redcurrant, could not be, pretty general), plenty of red wine, old red wine barrels, light glühwein spices in the back, nicely musty with plenty of lemon acidity in the back. Lively carb. which works well. Pretty solid stuff, could use a touch more complexity considering the style but pretty enjoyable still.
