Sampled from 0.375 bottle. Huge gusher! Slightly hazy, golden amber with an off-white head. Slightly sourish, a bit funky and slightly fruity aroma of white grapes, gooseberry, lemon, some barnyard and a touch of oak. Quite sour, rather fruity and moderately funky taste of lemon, gooseberry, white grapes, oak and barnyard, followed by a medium long, rather tart and very dry finish. Thin to medium body, very effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Quite nice!

Flaska från DK. Smak och doft av humle, brett, malt, karamell, äpplen, citron, citrus, fat, jord, gröna druvor med toner av vinäger, vita russin och kryddor. Fruktig, viss syrlighet, lagom sötma, komplex med viss obalans. Gott!
