(500ml 2016 bottle from boxbeers.dk) Pours a hazy reddish brown with a big, short lived off white head that leaves nice lace. Aroma is heavy on red wine character, sweet and moderately sour at once. Notes of raspberry, blackberry, strong notes of sweet dried dark fruits (dates but also figs etc.), dark cherries, tannic oak, light acetic sherry vinegar quality. Flavour is tart but not sour, charries, raspberries, berry seeds, a little lemon juice, very little acetic acid, fairly neutral wood with subtle wine tones, some crabapple. Fairly dry in the finish, tannic, some berry skins. Light to medium bodied, extremely high carbonation. Promises more on the nose than the flavour delivers, not unusual for WW. Last of my pre-Inbev stock.
