Red colored body with good citrus. Great aroma with sourness as well as minor blackberries.

Solid tasting beer with mild citrus and mild sourness. Excellent beer

Poured to a BrewDog snifter.

A: Body is red coloured, with a crystalline touch and has a small, white, non-sticking head that vanishes very quickly.
S: The aroma is very strong of acidic tones, having the blackberry just in the back. But as a whole, this is very pleasing. Horse blanket, blue cheese and then a big blackberry profile in the back providing support is great.
T: Taste starts off with a citric tone of lemon zest, moving directly to a more sour tone that finishes with a crisp hearthy tone.
M: Body is light. Carbonation is low. Sourness is mild. Sweetness is low. Alcohol is unnoticed.
O: It's one legit SpontanSeries, probably being one of my favourite.

A 375ml bottle with a best before date of 10th August 2027. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Appearance: A lightly hazy reddish purple colour with a two finger pinkish head that dissipated quickly but left only sparse lacing.

Aroma: Blackberry, tart, vinous, funk and oak.

Taste: Funky, sour, tart, vinous and lemon with only a touch of berries.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.

Overall: Nice blackberry aromas which didn’t quite come through as much in the taste as I would have preferred, as the funk and sour lemon were a little overpowering.

Pours a dark purple with little in the way of foam.

Smell is full of berries, mainly blackberries and blueberries, a bit f funky tartness.

Taste is medium sour, with pleasant acidity and some lurking bitterness. Tastes of a lot of blackberries and raspberries. Well balanced and refreshing.

Mouthfeel is medium and bubbly.

Overall, one of the best Spontans I've had so far.
