Brought over by rvdoorn last weekend. Never thought I'd see this one, so a big cheers for the gesture man.
From a 75cl bottle into a small wine glass
APPEARANCE: Pours a small white head that quickly recedes to a ring. Lighter gamboge in color, hazy, with no carbonation evident. This one looks rather flat by the end though, as no head sticks around at all.
SMELL: Acidity, lemon tartness and light melon notes up front. Citrus aromas with fruity and acidic sourness for the most part. Really well balanced and forthcoming. Great.
TASTE: Lemon sourness up front with hay, some acidity and melon sweetness at the swallow. Fruity sweetness, lemon citrus sourness, notes of lime and a light acidity comes and goes rather quickly on the finish. Really nice, with a dry but flavorful finish. Great stuff, though a touch too dry at the finish perhaps.
PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes dry. A touch puckering perhaps, but relatively crisp.
OVERALL: This was really nice. The nose is a bit more impressive than the flavors as the aftertaste is a touch too dry for my liking, but nevertheless, this is an excellent wild that was very much enjoyed by the whole group. Some really nice flavors with a good feel on this one as well. Thanks again rvdoorn. This was a surprisingly good one.

This was a delight to try. It poured a ghostly white-gold, with a slight haze from the chill. There was a delicate yet definitely sour-tart aroma on it, funky and fruity. The flavor is smoothly rounded, and approachable. Like a nuanced sour, with just a touch of funk and a cornucopia of summer fruit.
