Black current and blackberry taste. Hint of vanilla.
Nicely tart.

A - Largely opaque, burgundy color combining red and purple highlights, with a white head tinted pink, and lots of lacing.

S - Sour berry notes, a bit of wood, lots of acidity.

T - Follows the nose, with a big front of berry, hinting raspberry and cranberry, a middle where wood notes come out, and a moderate acidic bite closing with a slow fade.

M - Moderate sourness, tart, but not puckering.

O - A well-crafted lambic with great fruit notes. A carefully balanced and bright lambic.

The beer has a beatiful, dark purple color. Clear to a little hazy with a thin, pink head.

Nose: Tart, sour, black currant, vanilla, oak an a lot of sweetness.
Taste: Funk, tart, red berries, black currant, dry wood, fruity. Reminds me of POPPELS Projekt 007 - I got to do a parallell tasting!
Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium to high carbonation. Dry ending.

A great fruit lambic. I'm glad I got back to #Systembolaget and bought a few more bottles yesterday :)
