375ml green mini-magnum with no freshness date. Traditionally corked and capped and then foiled.
Appearance: The brewed brandishes a steady stream of carbonation to retain the thin yet semi-sticky lace. I decanted it as to not let any of the sediment into the glass it shows of such a shinny copper hue.
Smell: Hints of lemon rind, evergreen, mint, hay and barnyard aromas tart raspberries are there but subdued.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Moderate body, crisp with a creamy malt in the back. Super tart with a balance of fruitiness and souring puckered acidity. Raspberries and earth pile on high with the tartness. Cellar and barnyard flavour appear as well as a minty note. Hops are negligible and the maltiness only holds together as a solid foundation.
Notes: It takes some getting used to, no matter how big of a beer geek you are the first sip always puckers your mouth beyond recognition. A great last beer of the night to either pair with a fruity dessert or a plate of soft cheeses or just as a digestive.
