Chill haze pale salmon-red with loud fizzy bubbles settling quickly to nothing but a slippery, lightly bubbling surface.

Smell comes across as oaky, acetic and vinegary, but also floral and fruity with tons of red raspberry.

Taste is quite sharply sour, very very potent of malic acidity, verging into acetic, but also full of bursting raspberry juice, as well as some toasty char and a little balsamic lemon glaze.

Nicely effervescent, satisfyingly so like champagne, but that quickly dissipates to a slick medium body with a stinging, semi-dry swallow. It gets far more acidic and sour as it warms, to its detriment.
