Appearance: clear red-tinged deep amber with a short creamy light beige head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: oaky, vinous, cherry, balsamic, perfumey floral. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, mild bitter, light funk. (9/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, crisp tart finish. (4/5)

One of my favourite styles, by one of my favourite brewers. Obviously there’s nowhere for this to end but tears and disappointment, right? Except, when it works. And this works. Oh my goodness, does it ever work. (17/20)
