The aroma holds juicy, fresh and tart raspberries up front with undertones of subtle bread, lacto, citrus, rose hip, black currant, liquorice, tobacco, green tea, whisper of wood and a touch of funk.

Super tart raspberry, funky, juicy, light barnyard flavor. It’s a burner but very nice for Sourheads.

Generous share at HF harvest fest. Dark red pour with spotty white head. Deep raspberry aroma and flavor, very tart, nice acidity, not particularly funky or lambic-like in character but very refreshing and pleasant. Good.
