2014 Vintage

L - Cola like with a thin beige head

S - quite complex, acidic

T - Tart and complex, a real treat...

F - greath mouthfeel

O - A truly great beer, more and more complex as it warms up, best enjoyed near room temperature. Paired really nicely with St Marcellin cheese. It's really drinkable for the high abv, drink it like a wine.
