Received as an extra in a trade. Recent batch (July). Poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a slightly hazy ruby garnet hue with a fizzy one finger head that fades nearly immediately. Hard swirls produce fleeting wisps.
S - Currants, vinegar, wine barrels, light funk, faint alcohol. Quite pleasant. Not too sour though.
T - Taste is considerably more sour than the nose. Powered smarties, currants, cherries, light leather. Oak tanins, a faint chocolate. The fruits almost come across as syrupy. The flavour is there, but...I just don't like it. I like black currants too so I'm kind of confused as to why I'm not digging the taste.
M - Mouthfeel is spot on for the style. Nice and crisp, alcohol hidden quite nicely.
O - Overall, I'm not sure if its the syrup like flavour aspects of this or what but I'm just not digging it. I want to like it, hell, I want to love it. Unfortunately though, I do not.
