Bottle at Chriso’s pre-GBBF Shindig 2012. An unclear chestnut brown with a small but lasting, heavy beiege head on the pour. Cherry, red berries & woody notes dominate with a background yeastiness. A bit restrained in terms of sourness. Medium body & carbonation, lingering & medium intensity sourness in the finish with a light fruit skin bitterness to balance. A nice firm, crispness on the palate. cgarvieuk (25993) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2012
