3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at the Siren 2nd Anninversary bash, 07/03/15.
Blackish with blood red/purple hues, interesting colouration indeed!
Nose is rich red berry, blueberry must, funk, spice, plummy, tarte citric peel, woody tones.
Taste comprises horse blanket, less intense on the berry front, earthy, gentle red berry tartness, blueberry jus, musty wood, wild berries, citric peel, musty lemon rind.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a puckering linger.
Solid stuff, sounds like it shouldn’t work but it works damn well, drinks way below 10%.
