3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Tan foam gushed out of the bottle and spilled over on opening (which may represent how this beer was handled on mail order from Sydney). Cloudy dark brown body. Nose is woody red wine, dark berries, light funk, and a hint of balsamic vinegar. Flavour is vinous with initial fruity malt sweetness followed by a lightly sour tart dry yeasty finish. Palate is medium bodied and vinous with a lowish carbonation. I was reminded of a Flemish brown ale.
