4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
#3000: 0.75 l bottle from former ’Firma Bier’, best before May 2017, accidentally cellared for about two years. Almost clear, dark brownish red with a thin, fluffy, quickly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish, slightly sourish, moderately fruity and a bit oxidized aroma of caramel, cherries, strawberry jam, some balsamic vinegar and hints of oak. Quite sweet, moderately sour, very fruity taste of balsamic vinegar, cherries, vanilla, oak, red grapes, strawberry jam and marzipan, followed by a medium long, moderately tart, woody-dry and slightly vinous finish. Medium body, slightly astringent and quite effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Great stuff, very well balanced, sweet and sour flavours merge fantastically. Mouthfeel is very pleasant as well, not too astringent, overall extremely refreshing. Very good!

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A 750ml corked and caged bottle with a best before date of 19th May 2017. Poured into a Cantillon ballon glass. It was a dark ruby red colour with a half finger off white head that dissipated quickly and left some sparse lacing. Aromas were berry fruit forward, lightly sweet with raspberry, cherry and cranberry. Finish is lightly tart with earthy oakiness. Tastes great with a good balance of tart, lightly sour and lightly sweet, with raspberry, cherry and cranberry followed by some nice light oak woodiness. Dry-ish, medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall this is just really good. Nicely balanced, smooth and very fruity. I could drink this all day. Even though this particular bottle was nearing its best before date, it felt as if it would still be good to drink over the next few years.
