Sour and fruity. Small and balanced lemon taste. Refreshing and highly drinkable.

2013, not sure of batch. Thanks to afksports for the bottle. Reviewed from notes.

Dirty apricot with a very persistent head of tight white bubbles.

Nose is assertively funky. Wild barnyard and dusky wheaty notes blend seamlessly with
the orange. Lime has clearly dropped off somewhat, to be expected with more than a year of age.

Taste is even better. Blood orange and lime work like lock and key with the deceptive tartness.

Light, easy, mildly spritzy carbonation. Finishes smooth and dry.

Delightful meshing of fruit, funk and tartness. Super keen to seek out more.
