Thank you for sharing German speaking RB Crew! Sampled draft @ ZBF 2017. Murky red fruit appearance, orange, brief bubbles, basically zero head. Still, nose is puckering red fruit, vinegar, potent, bit watery due to lack of carbonation. Taste is sour puckering vinegar, oak, red fruit, lightly watery, lemon acidity, no carbonation,.... Very nice stuff for the initiated.
