3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell - London. This bottle I picked up almost three years ago I reckon. Then I stored it in my closet or under the bed, so it was definitely ready. Pours clear amber with a frothy, white head. Some tangy, aged fruits on the nose. Light sweet flavor with further tangy fruits, faint wood, berries, tart apple. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Tangy, ripened fruits to finish. Not bad.
